Bosch claims 7% fuel savings with haptic feedback gas pedal

These days we've become accustomed to gadgets that give haptic feedback, usually as a vibration or reactive force. The technology has also crept into our cars in the form of seats or steering wheels that vibrate to warn when you're wandering out of your lane. Bosch has been working on an extension of this idea – haptic feedback throttle pedals that indicate activity that is not conducive to good fuel economy.Read More

Bosch's smart car wraps the driver in digital displays

If CES concept cars are any reliable indication, the automobile interior is going to have a load of digital screen space in the future. Whether we're talking about the array of large displays in fully autonomous concepts like the 2015 Mercedes F 015 or the touchscreen controls of the 2015 VW Golf R Touch, concept car designers are showing little restraint in packing the car cabin with digital displays. Bosch's all-new, all-flashy CES 2016 show car offers yet another take on digital screen overload, presenting the driver with a full-length digital dashboard that bleeds into the doors and center console.

New Bosch system shuts off coasting cars' engines

Cars don't need to have their engines running when they're stopped at red lights. That's why a number of automakers have developed start-stop systems, which stop a car's engine when the vehicle comes to a halt, and start it again as soon as the gas pedal is pressed. Bosch, however, is taking things farther. Its new start-stop system shuts the engine off not only at stops, but also whenever the car is coasting. Read More

Bosch Zoo'o ProAnimal could be your pet vacuum cleaner

If you own a dog or cat, you might wonder why people who don’t own one even need a vacuum cleaner – after all, aren’t pet fur and paw-dirt pretty much entirely what vacuums are used to clean up?

That’s where Bosch’s new Zoo'o ProAnimal vacuum comes into the picture. As its vaguely Irish-sounding name implies, it’s optimized for sucking up animal hair.Read More
