Bosch Manufactures One-Millionth Radar Sensor

When driving a car, the most important point of reference is the vehicle in front. How far ahead is it, and how fast is it traveling? What humans can only estimate, radar sensors can measure with extreme precision around 20 times a second – which is why they form the basis of numerous powerful assistance systems. These systems automatically maintain chosen pre-selected distance from the car ahead, and in critical situations they provide warning...

Anniversary for a life saving technology

Bosch has manufactured 75 million ESP systems since series production began in 1995 – and in the process made a vital contribution to greater road safety. Especially on slippery roads and when entering a bend too quickly, the electronic stability program keeps vehicles safely on track. In this way, it prevents skidding accidents, which can often be particularly severe. Summarizing the findings of many studies of its effectiveness, Gerhard Steig...

Bosch Driver Drowsiness Detection

Fatigue and microsleep at the wheel are often the cause of serious accidents. However, the initial signs of fatigue can be detected before a critical situation arises. Bosch Driver Drowsiness Detection can do this by monitoring steering movements and advising drivers to take a break in time. The required information is provided either by the car’s electric power steering system, or by the steering angle sensor which is part of the car’s ESP a...
