7% lower fuel consumption with active gas pedal

7% lower fuel consumption with active gas pedal
The driver’s foot is responsible for one-quarter of fuel consumption. Up to now, the only thing that could be done about this rule of thumb was to drive gently and take eco-driving courses. Now, however, Bosch has developed a technical aid in the shape of the active gas pedal: its gentle vibration tells drivers when they have crossed the line from light touch to lead foot.

Save fuel by stopping the engine before the vehicle

Save fuel by stopping the engine before the vehicle
Helping to combat the ever rising cost of fuel, Bosch has developed a new start-stop coasting function which stops the engine when the vehicle is in motion to save fuel. The new system stops the engine whenever the vehicle can maintain its speed simply by rolling (i.e. on a slope). As soon as the driver touches the accelerator or brake pedal, the engine starts up again. Bosch's new start-stop coasting function enables travel in zero-emission, noise-free, and low-resistance mode over large parts of the journey.

100 Years Of Electricity In The Car

One hundred years ago, Bosch brought electricity into the car: a generator launched in 1913 powered the “Bosch-Licht,” the world’s first automotive lighting system. In the years that followed, the generator increasingly became the automobile’s power station. Today, it supplies power to things such as the car radio, power windows, air-conditioning system, and safety systems such as ESP(R). Now, in the Bosch boost recuperation system, it delivers 10 kilowatts of power to support the combustion engine, allowing a fuel saving of as much as 15 percent. “Bosch is turning the generator into a motor. In this way, we are making hybridization affordable. The Bosch boost recuperation system is a hybrid everyone can afford,” says Dr. Rolf Bulander, member of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH. What makes this possible is a new form of hybrid based on appropriate components and a 48-volt on-board network.

Continuously Variable Transmissions On The Rise Worldwide

Continuously Variable Transmissions On The Rise Worldwide
Driving up a winding mountain road can be a tiresome task. None of the gears seems to be right. Sometimes they are too high, sometimes too low. With continuously variable transmission, it's a different story. As its name suggests, this automatic transmission works without any fixed shifting point. The result is a smooth drive at constant traction and engine speed.

Improved Safety On Two Wheels

Improved Safety On Two Wheels
Bosch has developed motorcycle stability control (MSC), the first brake control system for motorcycles to ensure the best possible stability in all riding situations. It supports the biker during both braking and accelerating, and while riding straight as well as while cornering. The motorcycle’s handling – and thus all the pleasure of riding – remains unchanged. The system will already be available at the end of 2013 with the KTM 1190 Adventure and 1190 Adventure R 2014 models.

Funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research

As part of a new joint project, two companies and two academic institutes have got together with a single goal in mind: to improve battery performance in electric vehicles. The project partners hope that smart battery management will give a significant boost to the performance, safety, and service life of electric and hybrid vehicles. An innovative method that uses the path traveled by the electricity in the battery to transmit data provides the technical basis for the optimum exchange of measurement data and control signals. Between now and May 2016, the IntLiIon project (intelligent data bus concepts for lithium-ion batteries in electric and hybrid vehicles) will receive 2.5 million euros in funding from Germany's Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
