Connected and automated parking solutions

A new parking experience with connected and automated parking solutions

Bosch is paving the way towards fully connected and automated mobility. This includes innovative solutions that make maneuvering and parking safer, more comfortable and convenient, as well as 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.

When maneuvering the vehicle into and out of parking lots, it is often about centimeters. Park assistance systems automatically and precisely support the driver in his task. Near-range cameras and ultrasonic sensors enlarge the driver’s view by providing up to 360 degree surround view. This makes parking into even the smallest parking spaces easy and comfortable. If the sensors detect obstacles, the systems warn the driver of impending collisions, and even brake automatically when necessary. The fusion of sensor data makes those systems even more reliable.

Full-service for parking garages

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.

Solutions for easy parking space entry and exit

Solutions for easy parking space entry and exit

Around 40 percent 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 parking assistance 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 park assist

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 park assist simplifies 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.

Reversing assist

Reversing assist

Parking garages are often narrow and confusing, so maneuvering can quickly become a challenge. If there is oncoming traffic, for example when the driver is about to drive up one floor, reversing can lead to stress. By following the previously recorded trajectory, the reversing assist takes over the steering task, helps backing up and even brakes automatically, when obstacles are detected on the pathway.

Rear view system

Rear view system

Modern vehicles often offer the driver only a limited view of the vehicle’s surroundings. Increasingly smaller side and rear windows, combined with a vehicle shape that is strongly influenced by aerodynamics and pedestrian protection, is making safe and precise maneuvering extremely difficult. The Bosch rear view system assists drivers reversing by displaying the image onto the vehicle’s dashboard.
