Driver information systems

Beyond driving

In future, the car will be your third living space and personal assistant.

@CES 2016, Bosch presents its roadmap for the future of connected mobility.

  • Function
    Navigation and infotainment systems

    Information, communication, and entertainment both in and with the vehicle are an integral part of automotive development. The only way to implement today’s large choice of navigation, entertainment, telematics, and driver assistance systems is by using high-performance interfaces such as human machine interfaces (HMI), control units, and operating controls. Bosch is continually growing its system integration competence and using it to develop smart solutions for integrating and connecting all kinds of different vehicle functions.

    Bosch’s innovative and high-quality navigation and infotainment products enhance the driving experience and the attractiveness of the vehicle. Intuitive and ergonomic vehicle function control and the simple integration of personal mobile devices and web-based services increase individuality and safety.

    Bosch places particular focus on the interaction and system integration of further vehicle domains such as engine management, the aim being to reduce fuel consumption and emissions as well as to continue to improve in-car safety and comfort. Bosch takes car makers’ standardization requirements (data formats, interfaces, etc.) into account and meets the demands made by the consumer electronics market for short innovation cycles, all the while keeping a careful eye on what will be required in future.

  • Customer benefits
    More in-car information, comfort, and safety

    Bosch is an original equipment supplier and system partner providing smart solutions for entertainment, navigation, telematics, and driver assistance functions. These innovative products and systems combine high customer benefit and excellent quality, and they serve to inform, entertain, and make life easier for car drivers. At the same time, the functions are connected and controlled in such a way as to support the driver’s concentration. An important aspect of this is the ability to control all entertainment, navigation, and communication functions via one device. Automatic prioritization of incoming information relieves the driver’s burden even more. Interconnection of vehicle domains can reduce emissions and improve safety and comfort.

    The car becomes part of the internet with Bosch, and online data is made available in the vehicle. Intuitive and convenient voice input or touchscreen control allows the driver to pay complete attention to the traffic situation. A precise navigation system ensures guidance to the destination is reliable and economical. Features such as attractive 3D maps allow plenty of scope in how to display images.

    Bosch’s system architecture and operating system allow new functions to be integrated quickly and easily, meaning they close the gap between the short innovation cycles of the world of apps and ever-longer vehicle lifetimes.

  • Automotive competence
    Comprehensive portfolio and extensive expertise

    Bosch’s diverse multimedia system portfolio includes display systems, infotainment, and entertainment systems, as well as navigation systems. Successful solutions for in-car infotainment and multimedia require comprehensive know-how and the ability to quickly and flexibly address and process market trends. Bosch anticipates automakers’ standardization requests in line with end-user requirements concerning data formats and interfaces, for example, and implements these with foresight.

    Systems competence and comprehensive know-how

    Modern multimedia systems must be able to reliably display lots of information. This makes it essential to ensure stable connections between all the various vehicle domains. Bosch has an integrated understanding of the automobile as a composite system, and its system integration capabilities mean it can match the short innovation cycles commonly found in the consumer-electronics market.

    Driving innovation and technology

    Bosch creates innovations that make vehicles safer, more efficient, and more comfortable. Bosch already connects all in-car entertainment, navigation, communication, and operating functions to form a single system, which helps greatly to deliver necessary improvements in the way information is displayed in the vehicle.

    Ensuring quality and reliability

    Bosch products meet the highest possible technical requirements and form the basis for vehicles equipped to the highest standards. Their high degree of functional safety, reliability, precision, durability, and longevity regularly receive awards from Bosch’s customers.

    Global presence

    Bosch is a multinational supplier, always close to where its customers are. With locations across all four continents, Bosch facilitates short paths and rapid, simple collaboration. Thanks to its in-country presence, Bosch is familiar with specific local requirements.

    Long-term partnership

    Bosch is a competent and reliable partner to the automotive industry over the complete life of the vehicle. From designing and developing new multimedia systems through to series production, and beyond this for vehicle servicing and active marketing.
