Bright and airy, driverless and comfortable – the Bosch IoT shuttle is a vision of passenger transportation for tomorrow’s roads. It is an electric vehicle in a completely new vehicle segment that is connected to its surroundings and designed to provide a stress-free mobility experience for people traveling on their own as well as with others. Equipped with a wide array of applications, this ultra-advanced vehicle provides what is needed to simplify and bring joy to users’ everyday lives – from integrated booking platforms and mobile working facilities to a huge range of infotainment options for fun and relaxation.
The shuttle welcomes you as soon as you get in the vehicle and displays all the information that is relevant to you. The optimal route is already selected based on the information the shuttle has looked up in your personal calendar – you don’t have to do a thing. And if you change the destination or add additional stops during the journey, the shuttle automatically takes that into account in its route planning. Want to pick up a colleague on the way? No problem! And the really neat thing is you and your fellow passenger can make good use of your journey time thanks to the numerous applications that the shuttle offers. You’d have time, for instance, to add the finishing touches to a forthcoming customer presentation on the vehicle’s big screens.
Personalized cockpits, connected services, a vast array of information and entertainment options – step by step, Bosch is making its vision of the IoT concept shuttle a reality. Solutions from Bosch are today already making mobility safer, more efficient, and more comfortable and convenient.
Digital services, for instance, help drivers find a parking space, and displays in the cockpit can be personalized according to the user’s wishes and needs. The range of infotainment offered to users in modern vehicles is growing continuously too.
Especially when it comes to connected and automated driving , though, one aspect is of crucial importance: the technology behind it. It is the foundation on which this new kind of mobility is built. After all, it ensures a continuous, secure, and smooth flow of communication within vehicles, among vehicles, and between vehicles and their surroundings.
The perfect interplay between connected services and digital solutions for the vehicle interior and a smart combination of hardware and software will in future enable fascinating, new in-vehicle experiences.
Interactive screens, ease of use, and a display that shows exactly what the driver needs – this is no longer merely a vision of the future. The digitized vehicle interior offers a whole range of personalization options that are not possible with a standard vehicle configuration.
Do you want to have the current playlist shown at a particular position on the display? No problem at all! After all, the vehicle should adapt itself to the driver, and not the other way around.
Modern vehicles are hubs in the internet of things. Multi-layered protection concepts are required in order to successfully minimize the risks of manipulation and data misuse. A holistic solution for secure vehicle architecture is based on protective mechanisms that complement and interact with one another at all relevant system levels.
Each of these levels has its own specific challenges with regard to potential attacks and the impact of such attacks. This is why they also need their own protection concept. ESCRYPT’s “defense-in-depth” approach integrates several defense levels with specific products and services to form a fully integrated overall concept. Find out more
