This award is an honor for me. I remember the people as very endearing, open, and pragmatic. Tradition: Bosch opened its first branch office in Brazil in The local subsidiary Robert Bosch Ltda. Bosch has thus been active in Brazil for more than years. All four business sectors operate there today. Local presence: In Brazil, the company focuses on localization. In Campinas, Bosch manufactures mobility solutions such as vehicle retrofitting components, powertrain systems, driver assistance systems, and power tools.
The plant in Curitiba produces diesel injection systems. Aratu makes spark plugs, and Pomerode is home to a plant for hydraulic systems. Sincethe Bosch service center in Joinville has been providing service solutions for South America.
Sales: A successful business year in sales rose to 4. The Mobility Solutions business sector in particular saw positive developments in due to growth in vehicle production in Brazil and Argentina.
Investment: InBosch invested some 53 million euros in Brazil. Headcount: Bosch employs some 8, associates in Brazil at 14 locations. Dual education model at Bosch in Brazil: InBosch became one of the first companies to set up a dual education system in Campinas and Curitiba.
Using this model, which is well-established in Germany, we train professionals such as mechatronics engineers according to German standards. To date, a total of over 1, young people have accordingly completed their occupational training.
Bosch has also opened a center in Campinas that conveys and enhances knowledge throughout the spectrum of industrial occupations to facilitate efficient training.
In addition, Bosch Brazil supports the promotion of talent and occupational training programs in the country. Local innovation: Strong localization is an important part of the Bosch strategy worldwide. The electronic control system for the flex-fuel engine is a good example of this. InBosch developed a unique local solution for Brazil with this innovation, which allows drivers to choose flexibly between gasoline and ethanol at the pump. As a vehicle fuel, ethanol continues to have tremendous economic significance for Brazil.
The flex-fuel engine is still used in most of the vehicles manufactured in Brazil. Smart solutions for Brazil: Demand for connected products is also growing in Latin America. In Brazil, Bosch is developing connected solutions for mining, logistics, and Industry 4. Originally set up to improve medical care for Bosch associates, the hospital was spun off into a foundation inultimately opening it up to the general public.
Instituto Bosch, which makes project funding of up to 3.Nonetheless, there are a few points that can be made with certainty before it all unravels. The painting was first described in by the Italian chronicler Antonio de Beatis, who saw it in the palace of the counts of Nassau in Brussels.
It can therefore be considered a commissioned work. And, indeed, there is very little agreement as to the precise meaning of the work. It is a creation and damnation triptych, starting with Adam and Eve and ending with a highly imaginative through-the-looking glass kind of Hell.
No one really knows why Bosch imagined the world in this particular way. What concerned Bosch, in his triptych of creation, human futility and damnation the Garden of Earthly Delights is a modern misnomer for the workwas the essentially comic ephemerality of human life.
Allow me to explain. If one thinks of the outside panels as the end of the entire pictorial cycle, rather than its beginning, then this image could easily be a depiction of the Flood, sent by God to cleanse the earth after it was consumed by vice. This path towards vice is mapped in the inner panels of the triptych. The outer panels are therefore intended to provoke meditative purgation, a cleansing of the mind. What Bosch seems to have invented is an entirely new form of secular triptych, one that functioned kind of like a Renaissance home theater package for wealthy patrons.
The first panel depicts God, looking like a mad scientist in a landscape animated by vaguely alchemical vials and beakers, presiding over the introduction of Eve to Adam which, in itself, is a rather rare subject. It is almost as though he imagined the world of creation as a terrific Willy Wonka series of machines with humans as their product. I wonder though. Many figures appear in all sorts of chrysalis states, or inside eggs or shells, and are fed ripe berries by birds or strange hybrid creatures; in the middle-ground some kind of procession of men, riding on various animals and accompanied by birds, circles a small lake of bathing maidens.
This breaking and becoming is the nature of nature, and man in nature, is not differentiated by anything OTHER than his free will, his concern for his own behavior.
Our reason is our undoing. His was a highly singular and idiosyncratic talent, and Bosch was really no more a product of his own time than he would have been of any other time. However, his ability to visualize hallucinatory landscapes made him extremely popular, three centuries later, with surrealists like Salvador Dali, who was also a virtuoso imagineer of nightmarish other-worldly worlds. I would venture to guess that Lewis Carroll must also have been a fan. Bosch saves the best for last.
Against a backdrop of blackness, prison-like city walls are etched in inky silhouette against areas of flame and everywhere human bodies huddle in groups, amass in armies or are subject to strange tortures at the hands of oddly-clad executioners and animal-demons. Dotted about are more crazy machine-like structures that seem designed to process human flesh.
Some of these are strikingly disturbing. Near the center, a bird-like creature seated in a latrine chair, like a king on a throne, ingests humans and excretes them out again; nearby a wretched human is encouraged to vomit into a well in which other human faces swirl beneath the water.
In general, the bodies purge themselves or are purged of demons, black birds, vomitus fluids, blood; as in any good Boschian world, bottoms continue to be prodded with various instruments. But the general emphasis is on purgation. Overall, there is a marked emphasis on musical instruments as symbols of evil distraction, the siren call of self-indulgence, and the large ears, which scuttle along the ground although pierced with a knife, are a powerful allusion to the deceptive lure of the senses.
In fact, many of the symbols and the tortures here are pretty standard in the catalogue of the Seven Deadly Sins, in which our senses deceive our thoughts into self-indulgent over-consumption.Violin maker — Evidently an adventuresome young man, Paolo de Barbieri ran away from home to become a sailor at the age of 13 and returned to Genoa six years later, in He then apprenticed to Cesare Candi before serving in the navy and returning to work for his teacher.

Yet, people all over the world suffer from air pollution, particularly in major cities. The reasons are diverse — but there are solutions to the problem. The worst conditions can be found in the poorer states of Africa and Asia and in megacities, i. The pollutant emissions from industry, agriculture and transport are the worst offenders, and the generation and use of energy are often too inefficient.
There is enormous scope for action in this area — and several examples that show how intelligent technologies can improve the quality of life. Measurement devices provide the foundation for improving quality of life in cities, making it possible to determine how clean or dirty the air is and whether measures are achieving the desired effect.
For this purpose, smart climate monitoring systems collect and analyze real-time data relating to pollutant levels, humidity and pollen count. With these values determined, cities can respond immediately with intelligent networking. A first step toward becoming a smart city.
A change in thinking is followed by a redirection — of traffic flows for example. The systematic evaluation of big data allows municipalities numerous possibilities to offer their citizens smart measures and helpful services. A partnership between Bosch and the major Chinese city of Tianjin is a practical example.
The result has been the development of a virtual power stationa software solution that brings together energy from various, mainly renewable, sources and makes it possible to manage them centrally. It provides a source of green energy to those who wish to use it. All these approaches show that the most sensible solutions are those that allow each individual to make a contribution to improving quality of life. Above all, cities need to offer a broad transit service.
Because many residents see individual motorized transport as indispensable in their daily lives, Bosch is now placing its energy not only into the systematic further development of internal combustion engines but also into electric drives.
Local emissions are already being avoided thanks to electro-mobility. Ever more electric vehicles will be coming onto the market in the coming years — not only from the major car manufacturers, but also from start-ups such as e. The German company already offers a small economical car optimized for mobility within the city and which is powered by a Bosch electrical drive train. Bosch itself is ever more frequently a founder of companies, as in the case of Triffix.
The Stuttgart traffic control center sends relevant information — including recommendations for action — to Triffix, where it is distributed to each road user in tailored packages.
In short, everyone receives the most important information at the right time and in the right place. The winning technology was one that improves air quality in rooms. It does this by using a small fan to ventilate the roots of the plant, which can then absorb pollutants better and convert them into oxygen. This idea convinced the jury, and the start-up now has the opportunity to further develop their ideas together with experts at Bosch.
Cities are growing and the challenges are increasing. And the search for innovations continues unabated. We will only be able to live healthily over the long term — and breathe freely the world over — if we succeed in keeping our environment clean with smart solutions.

Using green energy The systematic evaluation of big data allows municipalities numerous possibilities to offer their citizens smart measures and helpful services.
A two-pronged approach All these approaches show that the most sensible solutions are those that allow each individual to make a contribution to improving quality of life.A smart flowerpot that combines nature and technology: Designed by an Italian start-up, the concept improves the quality of indoor air.
The air inside is even up to five times more contaminated than outside, and this not only applies to bars where people smoke. Textiles and cleaning agents for example contain alcohols, aldehyde and organic acids that vaporize at room temperature. These volatile organic compounds VOCs make people tired, cause headaches and can even increase the risk of cancer.
Vitesy's natural air purifiers are completely manufactured in Italy and also freshen up spaces optically. At Pioneersa trade show for start-ups in Vienna, Vitesy's natural air purifier made of environmentally-friendly materials excited the jury of the Bosch Pitching Challenge, where the focus was on creative elements in everything to do with the internet of things.
As the winner of the Pitching Challenge, Vitesy and Bosch will in future work closely together to jointly spark further innovations. The efficiency of Clairy — which is the name of the first product — is down to the ventilation system and the high-quality sensors, designed to force the air through the roots to enhance the depuration capacity of the plants. In the soil, the toxins are filtered out in a natural way.
Thanks to the fan, clean air flows back out. With the help of the sensors, Clairy can measure the temperature, the humidity as well as the VOC share and therefore determine the degree of pollution in the room. Clairy connects to WiFi and it can be managed with an app where the user can monitor the air quality in real time. Everything started with an article on NASA researchers who, in the s, noticed that certain plants also filtered out harmful substances in the air through their roots.
Three months later, they had the funding needed for the project. This time around, the goal of 50, euro was reached via Kickstarter within the space of 12 hours and obtained a sensational almost one million dollars pre-orders in 45 days. The natural air purifier therefore measures the carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide levels as well as the ultra-fine particulates in the air.
It also communicates with its owners via a LED light. A constant blue light means the air is pure. The user therefore knows that he or she has to react. The machine learning algorithms memorize the daily rhythm of its owner — like when he cooks or returns home and how it influences the air around him.
Photocatalysis is the term used for a chemical reaction whereby air is freed of organic contamination like viruses or bacteria.
All that it needs is UV radiation. The startup Vitesy would not be Clairy if Paolo and his team became satisfied with the status quo.
Vitesy has already proved one thing: technology and nature can enrich one another. Paolo Ganis was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. When still a child, he and his family left for Italy where he studied business management in Trieste and Milan.
He worked for five years in corporate finance at a Fortune 50 company but has been a passionate entrepreneur ever since. Aged only 27, he was the co-founder of Talent Garden Pordenone ina campus for co-working, training and events. The founding of Vitesy followed in the same year. The start-up now has a strong workforce and has received several awards in the recent past. The Italian startup develops smart planters against indoor air pollution 10 minutes. The root filter.
