Just as computers, smartphones, and the internet are part of everyday life today, so too will connected cars be in the year 2025. Together with the Prognos research institute, Bosch has looked into this future and investigated what connected vehicles will be able to accomplish using technologies that by then will be widespread: highly automated driving, wrong-way driver warning, and smartphone integration.
Driver assistance systems like Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) or the predictive emergency braking system, which are available in many vehicles already today, will be connected in the future. Thus, the benefits of these systems will increase even further.
The study, which looked at Germany, the U.S., and China, found that in 2025, the implications of connectivity will have noticeable effects on every driver and will deliver many benefits. Experts from Bosch and the research insitute Prognos give more insights in the video below.
Bosch and Prognos assessed various technologies for private passenger transport and how widespread they are, before projecting the resulting effects in Germany and the U.S., as well as major cities in China, by 2025. The model is based on international statistics on development of the vehicle fleet, accident data, and current research, as well as estimates by experts at Bosch and Prognos.
