Two people are looking over the connected city of Las Vegas.
Simply.Connected: CES 2018

Smart in Las Vegas

Technologies within the connected city

The Consumer Electronics Show 2018 (CES 2018) stands for technological innovation with a wow effect. At its booth, Bosch is showing that the intelligently connected city of tomorrow is already reality today: solutions for urban mobility, smart buildings and the connected working world.

“Simply.Connected.” in your neighborhood


The latest products, exciting lectures and lots of booths — CES 2018 (9 to 12 January) this year again offers a multifaceted program. At the world’s biggest electronics trade show, Bosch is concentrating on the challenges of urbanization. The city of the future has to be safer, more energy-efficient and comfortable — namely in your immediate neighborhood. Improved air quality, greater energy efficiency, cleverer mobility and more stability: They are the challenges involved in making the cities of tomorrow — and today — places worth living in. Bosch’s trade show booth gives one an idea of which solutions and services from the “Connected City”, “Connected Mobility”, “Connected Home” and “Connected Industry” sectors will play a part.

Connected City

Shanghai at night.

Finding parking spaces and making parking easy: Bosch’s community-based parking system lets the environment and car drivers breathe a sigh of relief. It helps drivers find the nearest free parking space quickly and safely. When driving past, the car measures the gaps between the parked vehicles and transfers it in real time to the digital map. Drivers can therefore let themselves be directed straight to the free spot.

The digital guardian angel with danger countdown: The Vivatar app always knows the answer to the question, “Did you arrive safely?” It is the reliable companion for the journey back home. If needed, a specially trained emergency team is available for you 24/7.

Connected Mobility

Connected Car driving on the street.

Bosch is putting the vehicle interior of the future into serial production: In a Cadillac Escalade, visitors can experience the whole display and operating concept live. Five synchronized displays form the interface between driver and vehicle. They make driving safer and less stressful – the driver can operate infotainment, navigation and climate functions via voice control and a control panel with haptic feedback whilst at the same time keeping his eyes on the road.

Connected Home

Roxxter as vacuum cleaner.

For those that have more important things to do than dashing around the apartment with the vacuum cleaner, there’s Roxxter. The vacuum cleaner robot with artificial intelligence scans its surroundings and creates interactive maps. It also likes to take on special jobs and it steers clear of no-go areas.

Connected Industry

The old lathe machine of Robert Bosch.

“Making something new from old things” is old hat. Today the motto is “Making old things better – thanks to connectivity”. Thanks to IoT Gateways, a 130-year old lathe has been catapulted by Robert Bosch from Industry-1.0 into the Industry 4.0 era. The connected system combines sensor technology, software as well as IoT-capable industry control, enabling detection of the machine’s state. The precise replica of the historical machine serves therefore as a perfect example of connected industry.

CES Innovation Awards: Two prizes for Bosch

Trucks, houses, apartments and wearables are made smarter and more efficient using Bosch connectivitysolutions. For such technologies to work, one needs, amongst other things, movement sensors like the BMA400. Due to its minimal use of power and its impressive performance, it is ideal for application in smart homes or for wearables – the powerhouse has therefore thoroughly deserved its CES 2018 Innovation Award in the Embedded Technologies category. As for the second winner (Category: Tech For A Better World), it involves the Common Telematics Platform. Using the telematic solution, managers of fleets of trucks can check the technical state of the vehicles and their components and warn of possible failures even before they happen.
