Infographic driver assistance and safety

Traffic volumes are increasing on freeways, country roads and in city centers in particular. Tighter spaces and an increasing number of vehicles also increase the risk of accidents. The key to significantly more safety and less stress in traffic is represented by modern driver assistance systems which either entirely prevent accidents or reduce their consequences. For this reason, Bosch is developing an ever-increasing range of driver assistance systems which protect all road users and relieve drivers, whereby Bosch is constantly extending its comprehensive portfolio of safety systems for cars into other market segments such as two-wheelers, trucks and even rail vehicles and forklifts. Motorcyclists in particular, for whom accidents often result in serious injury or death, enjoy a previously unknown level of added safety with innovative Bosch systems. Bosch also attributes a particular focus to protecting pedestrians and cyclists who are at most risk in traffic.

Thanks to constantly improving technology, driver assistance systems have meanwhile become true all-rounders: they have a 360-degree all-round view of their surroundings and protect not only drivers and passengers but all road users. Traffic benefits from the constantly improving interaction between the vehicle’s surround sensors and brake and steering system, enabling automatic maneuvers to be carried out even faster and more precisely.

Thanks to the consistent technical advancement of its driver assistance systems, Bosch also creates the technical basis for automated driving of the future. With this expertise, Bosch is already an innovation leader in many key areas of automated driving – from surround sensors through artificial intelligence to electronic brake, powertrain and steering control.

Technology and expertise from a single source: Bosch combines a broad solutions portfolio with many years of experience

Bosch is a one-stop supplier for all technologies for driver assistance systems, from individual components to complete systems. Alongside the powertrain, brakes, and steering, this includes sensor systems as well as internal and external vehicle connectivity. Driver assistance systems from Bosch and the technologies on which they are based are tried and tested, having already been used in volume-production vehicles for many years now. In 1995, for instance, Bosch introduced the electronic stability program (ESP®) to the market – one of the most important systems when it comes to driving safety. In combination with surround-sensor systems, it is also a key component for other technologies such as automatic emergency braking systems.

Bosch also utilizes this extensive expertise in the area of driver assistance, safety and automation for the development of future technologies which will make automated driving a reality within the next decade. Many Bosch locations around the world collaborate in the development of driver assistance systems, with Bosch represented by dedicated engineering teams in all key automotive markets.

Effective solutions for holistic vehicle safety

Connected

Functional safety

As electronics in automated vehicles take on more and more responsibility, functional safety comes first. The long-standing experience of Bosch and ETAS with software for braking and safety systems will continue to help that electronic systems react reliably within fractions of a second, even after several updates.

Automated driving

Redundant system

Automated driving puts higher demands on the safety of components and sub-systems in the vehicle. For this reason, Bosch has developed solutions which safeguard the automated system against malfunctions: safety-critical sub-systems such as steering, braking, an onboard power supply system and data processing have a redundant design and are controlled independently.

Protection from hacker attacks

Safety during automated driving means more than just consistently avoiding accidents. Autonomous vehicles are reliant on more software and require constant connectivity, which in turn opens up numerous windows that can potentially provide remote access. Therefore automated and connected vehicles must be protected from external manipulation. In the event of a hacker attack on the vehicle systems, Bosch has a multi-layer security concept to prevent attacks on the automated vehicle. The individual control units and the internal network, electrical and electronic systems as well as the interfaces to the internet and the cloud are protected by individual measures. Accordingly, if one security measure is overcome, it is impossible for the entire system to be compromised.
