PM Modi inaugurates Bosch smart campus in Bengaluru
Bosch, a prominent provider of technology and services, is extending its AIoT (artificial intelligence of things) activities in India. As part of this initiative, its headquarters in Adugodi, Bengaluru, is turned into a new innovative/smart campus known as Spark.NXT.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the chief guest at the inauguration ceremony. It was a momentous occasion marking Bosch's 100 Years of Operations in India.
Bosch India has built a 76-acre smart campus in Bengaluru, with numerous innovative technologies for sustainability, security, and user experience. Bosch uses its AI, IoT, automation, and digitalization capabilities to create its smart campus. The new Adugodi campus is one of its kind in India that will set new milestones for many corporate hubs around the Globe.
In addition to the state-of-the-art infrastructure, Spark.NXT also boasts of several energy-efficient measures. With smart air-conditioning, the campus not only lowers the carbon footprint but also reduces energy consumption by 30 to 50 per cent. 85 per cent of the total energy needs of the campus will be fulfilled by in-house solar panels and green group captive power. Also, around 65 per cent of domestic water demand can be met by rain-harvesting methods.
Besides the green energy initiative, the new Bosch campus also uplifts the whole parking experience for employees and visitors. PARK360 plays a pivotal role in setting up a seamless parking ecosystem and minimizing manual security efforts by 50 per cent.
Sanchit Gaurav, CEO and Co-Founder of PARK360 says, "When I moved back to India from the USA, I soon realized that every aspect of life, be it my apartment or office complex, places I go out to eat, shop, tour, etc.. were greatly influenced by the Parking Facility/System or Lack of it. It greatly motivated me to build a smart platform to provide an efficient & modern parking experience which can cater to the entire ecosystem with easy-to-use, secured and configurable digital solutions."
