Node-RED - XDK - IoT Cloud
Connect your XDK and all your Things in the BOSCH IoT Cloud now with Node-RED!

Visualize and analyze your sensor and all things data in your own flows. Connect and combine, build and design new applications with Digital Twins in the Cloud, which can now cover a growing number of use cases for you.

The heart is a connector in the Bosch IoT Cloud. Enter your access data and connect. All incoming data to the cloud will now be sent to your flow. Be curious. Filter your devices first, then your features and sensor data. Take a step back and look at the big picture. Build the dashboard, combine your flow with everything that Node-RED provides for you and develop fantastic applications with it! How it all looks live you will learn in a short time via the link on our XDK blog page.
So stay tuned what your XDK and the Bosch IoT Cloud can do!

Elasticsearch and Kibana
Use your XDK with Elasticsearch and Kibana!

Search and analyze your sensor data in real time. Elasticsearch is a distributed,
REST-based search and analytics engine, which can cover a growing number
of use cases. As the heart of the Elastic Stack, it stores your data centrally,
so that you can easily find what you are looking for and discover the unexpected.


You can then visualize everything with the appropriate kibana on your own
created dashboards. Be curious. Ask all sorts of questions about your data.
Take a step back and look at the big picture.

We are testing actually the firmware for your XDK - all looks fine - next step
is to design a nice dashboard with kibana. And some great feature -
you can also use Grafana to view your XDK data stored in elasticsearch too!
So stay tuned !

And here we are - the Kibana Dashboard of your XDK

XDK-OpenSenseMap Outdoor Enviromental Sensor System
You want to operate your BOSCH XDK SensorBlock as an
outdoor environmental sensor?

Well, we have something for you!

The open sense map is an open sensor data platform that anyone can join.
The project was developed in 2015 at the Institute for Geoinformatics in Münster,
to provide students and interested citizens with a platform
to collect and publish their measurement data.


The good news, your XDK can of course that too !
You can easily find out how it all looks live via the link on our XDK blog page.

So stay tuned what your XDK can do in the future.
And see you at the BOSCH Connected World 2018 in Berlin.

XDK-playing kidgame PENGOBRAIN
The BOSCH XDK SensorBlock can now play our Kid Game PengoBrain.
The good news - the game and a flashable XDK binary is now available.
Walk and move - turn your XDK in the correct direction and Pengo follows.
In the higher levels we have jump points.

Pengo Game Version 1.5

To activate them Pengo must use a magnet and activate the inbuild
XDK magnet field sensor - we have also tunnels - Pengo needs here
more light and must iluminate the light sensor with a torch.

Sometimes Pengo has to watch for humidity level and must increase
with breathing on the sensor.
We think that all could be pretty amazing to you and your kids.

BCW2018 starts at 20.02.2018 - and we are on the Hackathon
