2021-02-17 - Bosch IoT Suite Console - virtual demo device and notifications
The latest version for the developer console for the Bosch IoT Suite proudly presents new features and improvements:
Virtual demo device
The new virtual demo device enables you to evaluate, learn and demonstrate the Bosch IoT Suite without the hurdle to buy a specific hardware.
All you need is a browser or a smartphone to exercise the new getting-started tutorial Device connection - demo device, which uses the virtual demo device.
You learn how a device is provisioned and connected, how telemetry data is ingested, and how commands can be sent to control the device.
Once you have provisioned the virtual demo device using the corresponding Vorto model, open the Information via the blue box in the thing details.
Then, you can either open the virtual demo device in another browser tab, or by scanning the QR code with your smartphone.
The developer console now provides notifications, which inform you during your session.
The bell icon in the header shows the number of notifications, and a click on it opens the list.
When you mark a notification as read, it will be deleted.
Accessibility and design was improved
Colors, contrast and design were optimized to improve the accessibility of the Bosch IoT Suite Console, and to achieve a unified styling with other Bosch web UIs.
