CES 2017 Innovation Awards: Bosch honored with four distinctions for three smart solutions

At CES 2017, Bosch is presenting connected technologies that aim to make everyday life easier, more comfortable, and safer.

From January 5-8, 2017, the global supplier of technology and services is showing innovative solutions in the realms of smart homes, smart cities, connected mobility, Industry 4.0, and sensor technology. Prior to the trade show, Bosch was honored at the annual “CES 2017 Innovation Awards” with four awards for three smart products: a connected flow-type heater and two innovative motorcycle solutions.  

The smart water heater
In the Home Appliances category, the new generation of Bosch water heaters was honored. Via an app, users can switch the innovative water heaters on and off remotely, and even regulate water temperature or control the status of their boilers. The internet-enabled Greentherm 9000iSE makes it possible for homeowners and residents to



Connectivity makes motorcycle riding safer and more comfortable
Bosch motorcycle systems were honored with a total of three awards. A rider information system that replaces the traditional instrument panel with a display took the prize in the In-Vehicle Audio/Video category, and was also an honoree in the Vehicle Intelligence category. Moreover, a connected safety solution for small motorcycles and scooters was an honoree in the Vehicle Intelligence category. The Integrated connectivity cluster combines all the motorcycle’s instrumentation on a single display and makes it possible for riders to use their smartphones. The advantage of this is that the system automatically adapts the display to current usage. This means the rider is shown only the information needed at that particular moment. This reduces distractions and thus enhances safety. For example, at high speeds, all the display information elements are gradually hidden, except for 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 dazzle the rider. What is more, it is rainproof. Regardless of whether the user wants to select music or answer a call, all the main smartphone functions can be operated during the ride via a remote control on the handlebars: there is no need to handle the device directly. After initial linking, which only needs to be performed once, the system connects immediately to the smartphone and helmet headset via Bluetooth.

A connected safety solution for small motorcycles or scooters was also honored in the Vehicle Intelligence category. The lean connectivity unit connects the smartphone to small motorcycles or scooters via Bluetooth. Its main components are a handlebar remote control, a box for establishing the connection to the smartphone, and an app. If the driver has fallen off the motorcycle or scooter, the app automatically sends a text message containing the coordinates of the accident to a predetermined emergency contact person. In situations in which the rider feels unsafe, the handlebar remote control can be used to make an emergency call. In this case too, a previously determined emergency contact person is alerted via a text message. In the event of an emergency call, information on the vehicle’s position is transmitted at regular intervals. The lean connectivity unit also allows users to unlock the vehicle via their mobile phones. Using the corresponding app, the car owner can also share a smartphone “key”. This, for instance, allows other family members to use the vehicle as well. Telephone functions are another option. Among other things, they allow the user to set the lean connectivity unit to reject calls automatically when the vehicle is moving.
