Counterfeit Power Tools Detection for Bosch



Counterfeiting is a problem that has become increasingly prominent for many global brands, with the counterfeit market expected to reach US$2 trillion by 2022. Besides the obvious negative impact in revenues, the counterfeit issue has also a harmful effect on the brand.

In order to address the counterfeits issue, Fraunhofer AICOS proposes a solution based on a mobile application, running on the user’s smartphone that communicates with a back-end server for validating the authenticity of the equipment being analyzed.

Instead of using only the differences in terms of visual aspect, our solution is able to extract information included in the package, labels, nameplates or housing of the products to detect counterfeits.
