Bosch to showcase its connected mobility innovations at ConnectedWorld 2019

News

The internet of things (IoT) is changing the world of mobility fundamentally. Bosch will be showcasing its connected mobility solutions at Bosch ConnectedWorld 2019 in Berlin, where the IoT sector meets to discuss tomorrow’s world.

The integrated charging and navigation solution Convenience Charging from Bosch offers drivers of electric vehicles precise range forecasts, route planning that factors in any recharging stops needed, and easy charging and payment. With new geopositioning services, Bosch helps drivers make the most of the time spent recharging, actually making the stop something to look forward to. For instance, drivers can use the reservation platform integrated in the route planning software to book within seconds a table at a restaurant near the charging station.

In addition, Bosch's Convenience Charging also includes mobile charging services. This allows drivers to recharge their electric vehicle even if there is no charging facility nearby. To this end, Bosch has teamed up with third-party providers such as the Berlin startup Chargery. The full-service provider Chargery offers a mobile charging service that uses cargo bikes to take the power directly to where the car is.

Cars stay on the road for 15 years or more. To ensure vehicle software is kept up to date, more and more carmakers are implementing cloud-based software updates. As a result, the software of critical control units can be updated as easily as on a smartphone - without any time-consuming visits to a dealership. Bosch has developed all the features required for these wireless solutions in-house. They range from the control units and in-car communication infrastructure to modern encryption technologies and the Bosch IoT cloud. More than five million cars are already updated over the air with Bosch IoT suite software.

For direct vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication, Bosch has developed a smart connectivity unit capable of communicating using all transmission technologies based on Wi-Fi or mobile network-based communications. Equipped vehicles are able to communicate with one another as well as with their surroundings regardless of the vehicle make or the country in which they are used.

Bosch is cooperating with the Portuguese startup Veniam to handle the complex task of managing the data connections. The software constantly searches for the best transmission technology for each requirement and switches automatically between the available options. It therefore maintains continuous and seamless vehicle connectivity, ensuring cars can reliably alert one another to accidents, the approaching tail end of a traffic jam, and icy conditions.

Vulnerabilities in the IT security of connected and automated vehicles are by no means just limited to the vehicle itself. Attackers could potentially gain access to vehicle data or cryptographic keys during production. Or cyberattacks could use connected vehicles to target backend systems. Holistic automotive security must therefore combine manufacturing IT security, embedded IT security, and enterprise IT security. The provider of automotive security systems ESCRYPT, a wholly owned Bosch subsidiary, develops integrated security solutions across the entire automotive value chain - from car manufacturing to connected vehicles, and right through to connected backend systems and mobility services.

Vivatar is the digital guardian angel for people on the go. Whether on foot or in the car, it makes sure that help arrives quickly when called. To this end, Bosch has combined the Vivatar app with the new Vivatar Telematics plug. The retrofit eCall adapter simply plugs into the car's cigarette lighter and connects with a smartphone app. Vivatar drive detects car accidents and in an emergency automatically calls for help using the Bosch emergency assistant - whether the car is driving along a remote road out in the country or through western Europe. Vivatar drive can thus also be retrofitted in car models that are not factory-equipped with an eCall emergency assistance system.
