Summary connected and automated parking solutions

Bosch is paving the way towards fully connected and automated mobility. This includes innovative solutions that make parking safer, more convenient, and more efficient – whether at home, on the street, or in public garages. Bosch has a holistic approach here, offering hardware, software, and services that relieve drivers during every aspect of parking. And it’s not only the drivers, but also the environment and cities that benefit from reduced parking search traffic and improved utilization of available spaces. With its parking solutions, Bosch also contributes to the important realization of the smart city concept: intelligently connected cities featuring enhanced quality of life and environmental conditions for everyone.

Connected technology by Bosch reduces the often time-consuming search for parking by guiding drivers directly to areas with available spaces. Park assist systems automatically and precisely maneuver the vehicle into and out of even the tightest spots. For increased safety during maneuvering, the maneuver emergency braking assistant uses ultrasonic sensors to detect obstacles and warn the driver of impending collisions, even applying the brake automatically when necessary.

Solutions for a more efficient parking search


Particularly in cities, the search for a parking space nowadays is often cause for concern. Finding the right space costs time, money, and aggravation, in addition to increasing traffic loads and emissions. Studies show that two out of three drivers are dissatisfied with the parking situation in large German cities.

In order to shorten the duration of future parking searches, Bosch has developed solutions that provide drivers with helpful real-time information regarding available parking spaces. This puts an end to needless driving around while looking for scarce parking spots. For this purpose, Bosch offers the perfect solution both for street parking as well as parking in garages.

Community-based parking

Community-based parking is the connected solution for finding available parking spaces on the street quickly. Via sensors and connectivity hardware, vehicles identify available spaces as they drive past. Drivers looking for parking benefit from the data acquired by the community, and can be guided to available spaces in a more rapid, convenient, and precise manner using information displayed to them in real time.

Instead of a time-consuming search, vehicles can proceed directly to available spaces. This is an enormous benefit considering that each driver in Germany covers an average of 1,640 km each year while looking for parking spots.

Solutions for easy parking space entry and exit


Around 40% of all passenger vehicle accidents involving property damage occur during parking and maneuvering. Tight parking spaces often require multiple maneuvering actions, which can quickly result in dents and scratches. Getting in or out of a vehicle is nearly impossible when cars are parked tightly beside one another.

No wonder that almost two-thirds of drivers would be willing to relinquish control of their vehicles during parking maneuvers. As a specific response to such situations, Bosch has developed automated park assist systems that largely eliminate the need for driver input while entering and exiting parking spaces. Vehicles can autonomously enter and exit the space, no matter if it is on the street, in a parking lot, or in public and private garages.

Homezone parking functions


Parking the car on a private parking lot or underground parking space is a daily ritual for many drivers, which however requires paying close attention. The home zone parking functions simplify this task by parking and existing automatically while mastering an access route of up to 100 meters. Instead of maneuvering himself, the driver only needs to monitor and control the parking maneuver, simply at the touch of a button. Additional sensors will allow the driver to move away from the vehicle during the parking process. Monitoring the maneuver is no longer necessary.

Garage parking functions


With the garage parking functions parking in narrow garages will be no problem anymore. The automated functions take over parking into and out of the garage including an access route of up to 5 meters. The driver can solely concentrate on monitoring and controlling the parking maneuver - simply at the touch of a button. With the help of additional sensors, the driver will be able to move away from the vehicle during the parking process, without supervising the parking maneuver.

Automated valet parking
Full-service for parking garages


In the future, Bosch will be combining its connected and automated parking solutions to create an especially convenient full-service offering. With automated valet parking, the vehicle drives itself driverless and autonomously to its parking space inside the parking garage. Drivers simply drop the vehicle at the appointed area near the garage entrance

and starts the parking process, using a device such as a smartphone. The vehicle then automatically searches for and enters a suitable parking space. When drivers return, they wait for the vehicle to drive itself back to the pickup area. All that’s left is to get in.

Automated valet parking

Thanks to Automated Valet Parking (AVP), every experience – whether it’s flying off on holiday, going shopping, or taking in a concert – begins with calm as drivers drop off their vehicle in the drop-off zone. This new luxury is thanks to communication between Bosch technology in parking garage infrastucure and vehicles themselves.
