press release

To mark the 2014 Auto Expo trade show, Bosch is showcasing innovations and product highlights for the first time in an exposition of its own, to be held in Greater Noida near New Delhi. At this “Bosch Tech Expo,” customers from around the world will be able to see innovative technology for themselves, for example during test drives, and to talk in-depth with experts. The exposition will take place near the trade fair site from February 5 to 8. The highlights that will be on show include technologies for the connected car, more safety, and driving comfort, and efficient systems that reduce emissions and fuel consumption.

These are just some of the highlights that will be on show at the “Bosch Tech Expo” for …

1) …more road safety
  • Bosch MSC motorcycle stability control is the first system to assist riders when braking sharply in curves. This means that this safety system can defuse many critical situations, and significantly reduce the number of fatal accidents in curves.
  • Front-ABS 9M light: This is the entry-level version for two-wheelers at the bottom end of the price range, especially in the Asian emerging markets. It controls the front-wheel only, which makes it even more affordable. For the system to work, the front wheel has to be equipped with a hydraulic brake system, a configuration which is typical for many motorbikes in India. This function will also save lives: in India alone, 40,000 people die in motorbike accidents every year.


2) …more driving comfort and connectivity
  • Navigation and entertainment systems: New networked solutions reduce stress for drivers and enhance driving comfort by providing new entertainment functions. One highlight is mySPIN, an appealing solution that smoothly integrates the smartphone into the vehicle and ensures safe in-car use. It transfers the contents of the smartphone screen onto a larger, easier-to-use touchscreen located on the central console. Both iOS and Android terminals can be integrated into mySPIN.
  • In 2015, Bosch will be launching an expanded parking assistant. The system will include a remote control that helps maneuver the car in crowded garages. In the future, the car will be able to look for a space in parking structures on its own with the help of a 360-degree video sensor.
3) …efficient systems that reduce emissions
  • Denoxtronic: Bosch already offers cost-efficient exhaust-gas treatment solutions. They include the Denoxtronic system for cars and commercial vehicles – a system that can reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by 95 percent. This is achieved by injecting liquid urea – also known as Adblue – into the exhaust gas flow. This reacts with the exhaust gas and turns nitrogen oxide into harmless steam and nitrogen. By the end of 2013, Bosch had produced 5 million Denoxtronic systems, and this total will have doubled by the end of 2015.
  • invest some 160 million euros in extending its Indian locations.
