Safety in the car of the future

As the number of connected vehicles grows – according to Gartner, around 250 million cars will be connected worldwide by 2020 – so too does the potential for new digital services. Responding to the prognoses for connected mobility, Bosch has created a range of services designed to guarantee safe and stress-free driving: new display management systems, network hardware to implement vehicle-to-vehicle communication and developments to protect connected vehicles against hacking.

To showcase its new, all-embracing display and display management systems, Bosch has produced a concept car based on the Cadillac Escalade. A human-machine interface with five coordinated screens makes driving even safer and less stressful. It allows the driver to operate basic functions while keeping maximum attention on the traffic. A cockpit camera and voice recognition software identifies the driver and automatically loads personal settings for seats and mirrors and even the driver’s customised playlist. The driver controls the infotainment and navigation systems and air-conditioning by voice or touch-screen interface while keeping full attention on the road, minimising the risk of road accidents.

Vehicle-to-X communication in critical situations

Traffic jam over the hill or a car popping out from a hidden opening? The capability for vehicles to communicate with each other and their surroundings, and to warn each other of critical traffic situations, could save lives. Bosch has developed a new piece of hardware for vehicles, the Connectivity Control Unit (CCU) that is responsible for Vehicle-to-X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication. CCU technology meets every communication standard for WLAN, LTE and DSRC networks and can be used in every part of the world.

Cyber security for connected vehicles

An essential requirement for connected vehicles is data protection to fend off external intrusion. Bosch applies a multi-step approach to data protection in both hardware and software, ensuring that the network-connected vehicles of the future can maintain the high standard of data protection it already provides.

The Bosch subsidiary ESCRYPT has produced special security software, the Intrusion Detection and Prevention System that has the capability to identify and analyse potential cyber attacks on connected vehicles. The information it gathers allows appropriate counter-measures to be taken quickly and effectively, either for single vehicles or entire fleets.
