Bosch's mySPIN is a smartphone integration solution that creates a device-vehicle link to ensure safe and reliable onboard use.

Bosch has developed a comprehensive connectivity platform that can reduce a vehicle's fuel consumption, foresee when maintenance is needed and display all information on the owner's smartphone.

In line with its “in-the-region-for-the-region” strategy, Bosch presented its Intelligent Transport Management System (iTraMS) at the Bosch Technology Exposition 2016 in Noida, India. Features of the system include tracking of vehicle location, condition monitoring and performance analysis. The flexible new Bosch solution works in passenger cars, commercial vehicles and off-highway vehicles. The iTraMS system is not only available in newly produced cars, but also as a retrofit solution.

“Bosch's iTraMS platform is a connectivity solution tailored to the Indian market. It provides accurate vehicle information on your smartphone and can immensely reduce everyday driving cost,” said Bosch board of management member Dr. Markus Heyn, stressing the importance of local development. In addition, the key benefits of this platform include fleet management, essential and emergency services, off-road applications and intelligent transport solutions as part of smart-city solutions.

Another local development is Bosch's “e-Call,” which was developed with contributions from the Bosch India engineering team. According to Bosch, e-Call resonates with the company’s “Invented for life” ethos. Vehicles equipped with the safety system trigger an automated emergency call whenever a crash happens. Using data-mining techniques, the solution considers variables such as real-time vehicle, accident and environment information to estimate the probability of severe injury.

Bosch's mySPIN is a smartphone integration solution that creates a device-vehicle link to ensure safe and reliable onboard use. It allows occupants to continue using their preferred apps on their iOS or Android smartphones in the usual way, without having to compromise safety. mySPIN also facilitates continuous access to online music services, social networks and a wide range of smartphone apps. By making it available for as many vehicles as possible, Bosch said it is helping to speed up the transition to safer and more ecological driving.
