BOSCH BRINGS THE CONNECTED VEHICLE TO INDIA
Imagine a single technology that can reduce a vehicle’s fuel consumption, foresee when maintenance is needed, and display everything on the car owner’s smartphone. Bosch has developed a comprehensive connectivity platform solution which can do all that – a solution, moreover, that is tailored to the Indian market. In line with its “in the region-for-the-region” strategy, Bosch presented its Intelligent Transport Management System (iTraMS) at the Bosch’s Technology Exposition in Noida, which was held on February 3, 2016. Its features include tracking of vehicle location, condition monitoring, and performance analysis. The flexible new Bosch solution works in passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and off-highway vehicles. iTraMS is not only available in newly produced cars, but also as a retrofit solution. By making it available for as many vehicles as possible, Bosch is helping to speed up the transition to safer and more ecological driving.
Another outstanding example for local development is Bosch’s “e-Call”, which was developed with contributions by the Bosch India engineering team. It truly resonates with the companies “Invented for life” ethos. Vehicles equipped with the safety system trigger an automated emergency call whenever a crash happens. Using data-mining techniques, the solution considers variables such as real-time vehicle-, accident-, and environment information to estimate the probability of severe injury. This information can be used by emergency service providers to prioritize the type of ambulance service needed to reach an accident location.
