Bosch IoT Lab The «Bosch Internet of Things and Services Lab» has been formally opened in September 2012. It is a cooperation between the University of St. Gallen and the Bosch Group. Both organizations agree that the cooperation between academia and industry is an ideal setting to explore the opportunities the internet of things will provide. The lab’s mission is to find and test out business models for the internet of things & services (IoTS). In addition, researchers will be working to develop innovative and breakthrough internet-based products and services. The first major areas of research include networked mobility and smart home. Prof. Dr. Elgar Fleisch chairs the initiative as the scientific head of the Bosch IoTS lab. The lab is operated under the direction of Dr. Markus Weinberger (Bosch Software Innovations) and Assistant Professor Felix Wortmann (ITEM-HSG).
