ORIGIFY
Fake! Or is it? It's getting harder and harder to tell if something is real or not. This applies not only to images or facts, but also to physical goods such as consumer electronics, pharmaceuticals, or luxury watches. Bosch engineer Louis Tepper is part of a team that has developed a solution: Origify is able to scan and recognize the surface of an item based on a simple smartphone image. Melena and Shuko test it. In the process, they learn a lot about the luxury and vintage watch industry. They meet a young Danish watchmaker, Rune Bakkendorff, who builds watches from scratch. Origify, it turns out, could not only help consumers identify counterfeit products, but also help experts authenticate spare parts or industry identify parts too small for serial numbers or QR codes.

HOW GENERATIVE AI CAN HELP DRIVING A CAR
Prompt battle! We've all tried giving generative AI chatbots instructions that yield useful results. Recently, GenAI has rapidly expanded across various industries. But can it help drive a car? Dr. Liu Ren, Vice President and Chief Scientist for scalable and assistive AI at Bosch Research, is confident it can. He and his team are at the forefront of integrating foundation models such as large language models or vision-language models with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). In this episode, Liu explains to our hosts, Shuko and Geoff, how the extensive knowledge contained in foundation models can enhance the perception, prediction, and planning capabilities of ADAS. What's even more impressive is that Bosch Research’s approach works despite the constrained resources typical in vehicle environments. As Liu shares his cutting-edge research, Shuko and Geoff go head-to-head in a challenge: Who can craft the cleverest prompts for GenAI? Credits: 1.

DEEP DIVE: OPTICAL GAS SPECTROMETER
The OGS, the Optical Gas Spectrometer, is a feat of engineering. In the previous episode, we discussed what it can do and how it works. Today, Bosch associate and OGS inventor Alex Stratmann talks more about turning Raman spectrometers into an industrial product. Many considerations had to be made, from the custom laser source to the material used for the seals, and we also learn that OGS development hasn't stopped: The team is working on a high-pressure version and on efforts to measure almost any gas in the world.

OPTICAL GAS SPECTROMETER
Take a deep breath. What you just breathed in was probably about 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen and some minor other components. But how do you measure that? Measuring gases and their concentrations has been pretty difficult, says Bosch physicist Alex Stratmann. His team’s invention, the optical gas spectrometer, OGS, is set to change that. It packs what used to be a complex lab setup into a tabletop device. OGS leverages Raman spectroscopy, a method that exists for about a 100 years and has been used e.g. in the art world to analyze pigments. Our hosts Melena and Shuko learn from Cristina Aibéo, a chemist at Berlin’s National Museums, how Raman spectroscopy can help solve crimes and also save energy. At Bosch, on the other hand, the OGS helps with measuring hydrogen - and thus with the transition to a green hydrogen economy. Breathe in, breathe out, hit play!

INTERIOR SENSING SOLUTIONS FOR VEHICLES
You’re driving in your car, you notice a new restaurant as you drive past and you wonder: What was that? A car of the not-so-distant future may be able to answer that question. Because it knows what a driver (or passenger) is looking at - be it a landmark on the side of the road, the dashboard, or the road ahead. In the first place, monitoring the driver's gaze and head position enables important safety features, says Bosch product manager Tyler Warga. Geoff and Shuko learn how cameras and radar sensors can pick up signals that people are subconsciously sending. This can help prevent drunk driving, reduce distractions, and save children's lives. Future autonomous cars could even benefit from a sense of the driver's emotional state: they could pick up on Duchenne smiles. As University of Missouri professor Kennon Sheldon explains, this type of smile signals honest amusement. So be amused and wowed when you join us for a sensor-packed ride!

DEEP DIVE: HOW TO MAKE HEAT PUMPS EVEN MORE CLIMATE-FRIENDLY
Heat pumps are a climate-friendly way of heating a home. Replacing F-gases with propane as a refrigerant in heat pumps makes them even more climate-friendly, but presents some technical challenges. In particular, the goal of reducing the amount of refrigerant to less than 152 grams for safe indoor use requires smart solutions beyond simply shrinking the unit. While engineers are still figuring that out, outdoor units that use propane are already on the market. A flow temperature close to that of gas boilers makes them suitable for buildings that couldn't previously convert to heat pumps. Join Geoff's voice avatar and Bosch engineer Markus Sundbrandt as they explore how propane can accelerate the transition to decarbonized heating.

HOW TO MAKE HEAT PUMPS EVEN MORE CLIMATE-FRIENDLY
Heat pumps are literally the hottest trend in keeping our homes comfortable during the winter. Already much more climate-friendly than gas boilers or oil burners, heat pumps are set to become even more ecological. Markus Sundbrandt of Bosch Home Comfort talks about his search for a refrigerant that has a lower impact on the climate than what’s circulating in most heat pumps today. The new refrigerant has a global warming potential of only 3, compared to about 2,000 for traditional refrigerants. What these numbers mean, what this new substance is and why it has its downsides, too: all of that and more in this cozy episode, warmly hosted by Melena and Geoff.

B2X COMMUNICATION: SAFER ROADS FOR CYCLISTS
"BREEAAAAK!" the bike screams - figuratively speaking. With B2X, or bike-to-anything communication, bikes can be aware of other vehicles on the road that are out of the rider's view. And vice versa: car drivers can be warned about bikes they did not notice. Melena gets a demo of this technology, which is ready for use on bikes, cars, and beyond. Bosch eBike Systems team leader Christian Cosyns explains it in detail. Meanwhile, Geoff explores the similarities between connected bikes and bats. Scientist Holger Goerlitz examines their ultrasonic calls. Let's hop on the B2X prototype bike and see how connectivity can help make roads less dangerous.
