Chiang Mai – Bosch Thailand introduced its Bosch Innovation House (BIH) at Chiang Mai University’s Science and Technology Park (CMU’s STeP) in the north of Thailand. The collaboration with Chiang Mai University is in line with Bosch’s vision to create technology that is “Invented for Life.”
“Bosch Innovation House (BIH) at Chiang Mai University’s Science and Technology Park is our second project after the one established at True Digital Park in Bangkok, where we display our proprietary technologies in an engaging fashion. Both are located within the ecosystem of the business incubator which will help drive great business opportunities as well as enhance knowledge transfer and innovation culture among the private sector, innovators and startups moving forward”, said Joseph Hong, managing director of Bosch Thailand.
Some of the Bosch technologies highlighted at the Bosch Innovation House at CMU’s STeP include connected building solutions, which help improve occupant’s comfort, create more transparency into building operations, provide real-time information and increase building safety and security. Some examples include virtual parking solution, lift monitoring solution, air quality monitoring and smart evacuation, to name a few.
The onset of COVID-19 has changed the world in the past several months. Social distancing and the need for greater personal hygiene have become the new normal. With the help of Bosch cameras as a sensor, as well as multi sensor devices, solutions to monitor occupancy and crowdedness can aid in social distance monitoring and management to limit the number of visitors.
Asst. Prof. Tanyanuparb Anantana, Director of the Science and Technology Park at Chiang Mai University added, “STeP is committed to driving innovation by connecting the academic sector with industries or the University-Industry Linkage, which will further bring collaborations, and encourage tech start-ups. We also work closely with the government agencies and private sectors including the Federation of Thai Industries and the Chamber of Commerce. On the academic front, we have another six university networks in the North to respond to the entrepreneurs’ demands for technology and innovation production. To support the initiatives and development by the private sector, STeP provides services covering food pilot plant, laboratories, business counselling, matchmaking, and spaces such as fixed desks, small to large office spaces, wet/ dry labs, etc.”
“Bosch Innovation House is playing its part in the ecosystem at STeP by showing how technologies can help us transform the way we live and work”, Hong added. Bosch Thailand also offers a first-hand experience via a virtual tour to Bosch Innovation House to accommodate those who may not be able to travel to Chiang Mai.

Speaking of innovation at Bosch and the BIH initiative, Hong credits Bosch’s innovation culture which is the heart of every action, idea, and practice at the Group. “Bosch values diversity which is a vital element of our Bosch innovation culture,” he said.
“Chiang Mai can potentially become a hub for creators and innovators. Bosch is, therefore, pleased to be a part of this ecosystem. We look forward to more collaborations, as well as the contributions we can pay forward, for both the community and the Thai society,” concluded Mr. Hong.
