An asset can be anything from a tangible and physical device to the more intangible such as a system or the reputation of a company.
In our context, we define an asset as any item, entity, application or even system of applications that can be registered at the Bosch IoT Suite.
(For other terms you might encounter and do not feel familiar with, do not hesitate to look it up in our Glossary.)

Following sections will guide you step by step:

As soon as your IoT asset is registered at our cloud services, it can send telemetry data via Bosch IoT Gateway Software or Bosch IoT Hub to Bosch IoT Things.

To control the IoT asset you can implement a business application and send messages via Bosch IoT Things and Bosch IoT Hub back to the asset.

If you prefer to get started with a physical device instead, follow the the Physical device connection - tutorial.
