Bosch to display car of the future in Vegas

Updated on: Dec 24, 2015

For drivers, having the Internet in their car is more than just a convenient add-on. It makes driving safer and more efficient.

Bosch will be illustrating this at the CES 2016 in Las Vegas with a series of connected functions and assistance systems.

The company will also be demonstrating how easy these systems are to operate while keeping driver distractions to a minimum.

The Bosch booth in Las Vegas will also be offering a Live, hands-on preview of automated driving and smart vehicle connectivity.

New age tech

Bosch will offer a glimpse into the car of the future in the North Hall. Here, visitors will experience a new kind of interaction between humans and technology. In Bosch’s show car, the dashboard and central console have been transformed into an electronic display.

The information on this giant display changes depending on the vehicle’s surroundings. If a pedestrian approaches from the right, a lighting sequence is triggered to alert the driver. Drivers’ preferences as well as appointments in their diary are also taken into account. For example, if an appointment is cancelled, the car will automatically indicate the route to the next appointment in the diary. Drivers will be able to activate the autopilot to free up even more time and make their journey relaxed.

Smart cars

With a connection to the smart home, the car will enable household functions such as heating or security systems to be operated at any time.

For example, should a courier attempt to deliver a package with no one at home, all it will take is the tap of a finger on the vehicle’s display to allow the courier to deposit the package inside the house and confirm receipt.

Connected infotainment will let drivers navigate not just through the traffic but through their whole day. They will be able to use it to access online services and smartphone apps and control them using gestures and speech, just as if they were talking with a passenger. This will turn the car into the driver’s truly personal assistant.
