Summary Vehicle Management Platform

Connected mobility is no longer science fiction but reality. As soon as 2020, an estimated 250 million vehicles worldwide will be connected, i.e. constantly exchanging data between the cloud and their surroundings. The trend toward connectivity is one of the driving forces for the rapid transformation of the automotive and mobility sectors. It is accompanied by a wide range of new and innovative services which make mobility safer, more comfortable and more efficient than before.

For this reason, Bosch is intensively driving the development of connected services – with solutions for passenger cars and two-wheelers as well as for trucks and off-highway vehicles. Together with other providers in the mobility sector such as in the areas of rail transportation, car sharing or parking space management, Bosch is connecting these services to form complete business ecosystems. In this process, Bosch combines its IT competence with extensive automotive know-how, an in-depth understanding of vehicle data, and long-term experience with mobility services.

“Connectivity will fundamentally change how we get from A to B, and in the process it will help to solve today’s traffic problems.”
