The CES 2017 Innovation Awards judges honored Bosch’s motorcycle systems with a total of four awards. This includes the rider information system, known as the Integrated connectivity cluster, which combines all the motorcycle’s instrumentation on a single display.
Innovative display adapts to driving situations
The rider information system, known as the Integrated connectivity cluster, combines all the motorcycle’s instrumentation on a single display and makes it possible for riders to use their smartphone. The advantage of this is that the system automatically adapts the display to current usage. That means the rider is only shown the information needed at that particular moment. This in turn reduces distraction, thus enhancing safety. At high speed all display information elements are gradually hidden with the exception of the speed indicator and warning notifications. The display is easy to read in all weather conditions. Even in direct sunlight, the colors are distinct and the contrast is very high; in the dark the display does not blind the rider — plus it withstands rain.

Easy access to smartphone functions
Choosing music or answering calls — all essential smartphone functions can be used with the handlebar remote control during the ride without ever having to touch the device directly. After interconnecting the system once it connects immediately via Bluetooth to the smartphone and helmet headset.
