Robert Bosch GmbH Key Developments

Bosch Showcases its Latest Mobility Technologies at the Shanghai International Automotive Exhibition

Bosch showcasing its latest mobility technologies at the 16th Shanghai International Automotive Exhibition (Auto Shanghai 2015). Focusing on connectivity, automation, and electrification, the company is presenting a series of integrated mobility solutions to meet Chinese customers growing demand for cleaner, safer, more efficient, and more comfortable driving experiences. China is the large automobile market worldwide. At the same time, it is faced with multiple challenges including, among other things, environmental pollution, energy shortages, and road accidents. Shaping the future of connected driving by combining expertise in both hardware and software The internet of things (IoT) is bringing a profound technological revolution in the mobility sector. Vehicle connectivity will enable additional information and services, which will make mobility leaner, safer, more comfortable, and more convenient. By 2025, Bosch expects that almost all newly-registered vehicles will be connected and share data with each other in traffic. To drive this trend forward, Bosch is already offering various connected solutions including hardware, software, and services. One of the solutions Bosch offers in this field is the connectivity control unit (CCU), which manages a vehicles connections to the outside world. By enabling innovative new connected functions including Boschs automatic emergency notification service eCall, fleet management, predictive navigation, and predictive maintenance, it can significantly enhance driving efficiency, safety, and comfort. The company plans to open a new mobility-focused service center in Shanghai, which will be the first to offer eCall in China. If a vehicle equipped with eCall is involved in an accident, the eCall system detects this and sends the information to a 24-hour Bosch service center, which alerts local emergency services. Automated and electric driving make mobility safer and more eco-friendly According to the World Health Organization, over 1.2 million people are killed in road accidents each year, and the majority of traffic accidents are caused by human error. To realize its vision of accident-free driving, Bosch is continuously investing in the development and improvement of automated safety and assistance functions. Based on radar, video, and ultrasonic sensors, various automated driving functions have already been realized, such as automatic emergency braking (AEB), automated parking, and traffic jam assist. Meanwhile, the additional torque from the electric motor adds to driving enjoyment, bringing combustion engines to new heights. Bosch expects roughly 15% of all new cars built worldwide to have at least a hybrid powertrain by 2025. Moreover, falling battery prices will make hybrids considerably more affordable. In line with this, Boschs portfolio of electric solutions encompasses a broad spectrum from e-bikes and e-scooters, through mild and plug-in hybrids, all the way to fully-electric powertrains. On the other hand, there is still considerable potential in internal-combustion engines.
