Precise distribution of heat and cold increases the efficiency of the battery and ensures that all components operate within their optimum temperature range.
Flexible air pollution measurement system - better air quality in cities:
Weather monitoring stations are large and expensive, measuring air quality at just a few specific points. Bosch's air pollution measurement system consists of small boxes that can be distributed flexibly into cities. They measure temperature, pressure and humidity in real time, as well as particles and nitrogen dioxide. Based on these measurements, Bosch creates an air quality map and uses it to advise cities on traffic planning and management.
E-mountain bike - making difficult terrain easy with two-wheeled vehicles:
Electric mountain bikes are currently the strongest growing segment of the electric bike market. The new BoschPerformanceLine CX drive system is optimized for sporty use and has a compact profile. The idler pulley makes the driving feel natural even without engine assistance.
Driving assistance systems and automation - Bosch teaches cars to drive
Safety, efficiency, traffic flow, time - automation is one of the factors that will provide solutions to many challenges of tomorrow's mobility. In addition to having a wide portfolio of driver assistance systems, Bosch is constantly improving its systems, components and services related to partial, high and full autonomous driving.
Autonomous valet parking service - green light for driverless parking:
Bosch and Daimler installed autonomous valet parking in the Mercedes-Benz Museum car park in Stuttgart. The world's first officially approved driverless (SAE Level 4) parking function, the autonomous valet parking service, is activated with a smartphone app. The car is self-parking without a safety driver, as if driven by an invisible hand.
Front camera - image processing with algorithms and artificial intelligence:
The front camera combines image processing algorithms with artificial intelligence methods. The technology can quickly and reliably detect and classify vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists who are not fully clear or in transit at busy urban traffic. This feature allows the vehicle to trigger a warning or emergency brake.
Radar sensors - environmental sensors for complex driving situations:
The latest generation of Bosch radar sensors captures the vehicle's surroundings better, even in bad weather or poor light conditions. High sensing range, wide aperture and high angular resolution mean that autonomous emergency brake systems can react more reliably.
Vehicle motion and position sensor - precise positioning for vehicles:
Bosch has developed the VMPS vehicle motion and position sensor, which allows autonomous vehicles to accurately determine their position. This sensor allows autonomous vehicles to determine the exact position of the lane while driving. VMPS uses global satellite navigation system (GNSS) signals, which are supported by data from a correction service and also from steering angle and wheel speed sensors.
Networked horizon (Connectedhorizon) - much more precise and up to date:
Bosch continues to develop its networked horizon. Autonomous driving requires much more accurate information in real time about the road ahead, such as dangerous points, tunnels, or the angle of bends. The networked horizon uses highly accurate map data to provide the vehicle with such information in a safe and reliable manner.
Electric steering systems - the key to autonomous driving:
Electric steering is one of the keys to autonomous driving. Bosch's electric steering system provides additional safety thanks to multiple backups. In the rare case of malfunction, it can maintain at least 50 percent of the power steering function in conventional and autonomous vehicles.
Communication between vehicles, vehicle environments and users - Bosch brings seamless connectivity to mobility
Vehicles that warn each other about dangers or do not need a ignition key… Bosch's networked mobility makes life easier for road users while increasing safety, comfort and driving pleasure. The operation is very simple thanks to the intuitive human-machine interface (HMI) solutions.
3D display - instrument panel with deep vision effect:
The new 3D display from Bosch creates an attractive three-dimensional effect in the cockpit of the car, which is visible to both drivers and passengers. Improves visualization of driver assistance systems such as reversing cameras. Drivers get clearer information, such as distance to obstacles or vehicles.
Perfectlykeyless - key replacement smartphone:
The Bosch keyless access system operates with a virtual key stored on the smartphone. The system allows drivers to automatically unlock their vehicles, start the engine and lock the car again. The sensors placed inside the car can safely detect the owner's smartphone like a fingerprint and open the car only to the owner.
Semiconductors - the cornerstones of networked mobility:
Without semiconductors, modern vehicles would stay where they were. Bosch is the leading chip supplier in the automotive industry. Bosch chips help the navigation systems in the event of a GPS signal interruption and continue to maintain driving behavior. These chips turn off the power of electric cars in the event of an accident in order to protect the occupants of the vehicle and to ensure that emergency services operate safely.
V2X communication - data exchange between vehicles and their environment: Networked and autonomous driving is only possible if vehicles communicate with each other and their surroundings. However, a standard global technical infrastructure has not yet emerged for data exchange from vehicle to everything (V2X). Bosch's technology-independent hybrid V2X connectivity controller can communicate via Wi-Fi and cellular networks. This means that vehicles can warn each other in dangerous situations.
On-board computer - next generation electronics architecture:
Increased electrification, automation and connectivity further increase the demand for automotive electronics. Bosch develops safe, powerful controllers, known as on-board computers, and uses them in powertrain, automation and infotainment systems.
Battery in the cloud - services for longer battery life:
Bosch's new cloud services increase the lifetime of batteries in electric cars. Intelligent software functions analyze the status of the battery based on real-time data from the vehicle and its surroundings. It also detects stress factors on the battery, such as high-speed charging and multiple charging cycles. Based on the data collected, the software also calculates measures against cell aging, such as optimized recharging processes.
Predictive road services - anticipating potential hazards:
Rain, snow and ice change the road holding or friction coefficient. To enable autonomous vehicles to learn how to adapt their driving behavior to current conditions, Bosch has developed its own cloud-based road condition services. Information such as weather, road surface characteristics and vehicle circumference, as well as the expected coefficient of friction, are transmitted to the networked vehicles in real time via the cloud.
Indoor camera - observer for greater security:
Short-term sleep attacks, distractions or forgotten seat belts, such as a car in a vehicle that can lead to negative consequences, Bosch technology is no longer a safety issue. Bosch's in-car monitoring system, which is optionally available in single and multi-camera configurations, detects critical situations within seconds and alerts the driver.
