Bosch has developed automated valet parking, the first fully automated system (SAE Level 4), which not only relieves the driver of finding a parking space, but also handles the parking process in the parking garage.
Connectivity opens up new opportunities to develop and improve vehicles and mobility services, which makes mobility safer, more efficient, and more convenient. By seamlessly connecting users, vehicles, and services over the internet, drivers also get a fascinating experience and ultimately have more fun behind the wheel. That is why Bosch connects the systems and services inside and outside vehicles, transforming them into intelligent mobility solutions.
Bosch connects the vehicle’s components and subsystems to form complete systems in order to ideally manage energy, safety, security, and information. Vehicle systems generate most of the data transmitted to the internet and use most of the data retrieved from it.
With the mobile internet, vehicles can be connected with external IT systems and service providers, making them an integral part of complete mobility solutions. In addition, people expect uninterrupted internet access in cars. Bosch taps into its comprehensive expertise to meet both requirements.
Connectivity makes vehicles part of integrated mobility solutions that also include services. Bosch develops innovative connected services by bringing together vehicle technology, internet connectivity, and wide-ranging service experience that includes in-depth knowledge of vehicle-generated data.
Driving while being online is not a contradiction. It’s simply a question of making connected technologies safe, secure, and convenient to use. Intelligent HMI systems from Bosch solve that problem by providing drivers with the right information at the right time in an intuitive way.
Bosch takes connectivity well beyond the vehicle. These solutions link different modes of transport, infrastructure, and energy supply together. Drivers enjoy easy access to a variety of mobility services on a single platform.
In future, Bosch will make it possible to directly connect vehicles and more. Wireless connections exchange information directly between vehicles, and e.g. the infrastructure. This will lay the foundation for the data-based assistants and services of tomorrow – with no need for the internet.
