Security & Safety Things expands in North America
Security & Safety Things, a subsidiary of the Bosch Group, announced it is expanding its engineering, business development and sales and marketing staff at its North American headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pa. The additions are designed to support R&D and business development for its open IoT platform for smart cameras.
“When innovators can share ideas, resources and diverse perspectives, they are able to create new solutions and creative ways to leverage technology,” said Hartmut Schaper, chief executive officer of Security & Safety Things, in a statement. “Solutions developed here in Pittsburgh, working in concert with our global team, will help stadiums to reopen and optimize fan experiences, streamline COVID-related issues such as crowding and queues in transportation venues and help healthcare organizations with issues relating to compliance, patient privacy and accident prevention and response. These are just two of the many verticals that will benefit from the focused competence in the S&ST Innovation Accelerator. We expect to see developers and integrators jointly breaking ground with our experts in many other areas.”
The on-site Innovation Accelerator will be used to showcase S&ST platform innovations to visiting integrators and customers. The expanded office will also take advantage of the area’s incubator community, which includes Carnegie Mellon University, the Bosch Group, Amazon and startup incubators such as AlphaLab.
