press release

Bosch SoftTec GmbH is taking advantage of the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show to present 360°logiQ, a newly developed suite of integrated solutions for motor vehicles based on the knowledge gained from the dynamic electronic horizon. The system can alert drivers that they are approaching congestion or serve as a so-called country road assistant. The combination of software and service features heightens traveling safety and driving convenience by offering drivers farsighted and intervening functions. The alert function can automatically reduce driving speed when approaching congestion, decreasing the risk of rear-end collisions, while the country road assistant offers greater convenience when driving on country roads by automatically regulating the vehicle’s speed.

Server connection provides real-time information
The connection to a server system (Bosch "Trusted Data Provisioning") offers access to dynamic map information made available by the partner TomTom, so 360°logiQ can draw on the latest real-time traffic information such as speed limits, danger points, or traffic congestion just ahead. Interacting with precise map data, 360°logiQ calculates a route forecast and can automatically adjust the vehicle’s speed appropriately.

"Combining TomTom’s technology and knowledge with Bosch’s proven advanced driving systems to create a competitive solution for drivers", said Jan Maarten de Vries, VP Automotive at TomTom. "They benefit from having the most accurate information of what’s happening on the road ahead, creating an overall safer driving experience."

Torsten Mlasko, Managing Director at Bosch SoftTec, emphasizes this aspect as well: "We make driving safer and more convenient by ideally integrating TomTom's latest information with our decades of automotive expertise, thereby creating innovative solutions. This is how we make a cutting-edge contribution to safe driving."
