Bosch has undertaken 70 BS6 projects worth Rs 24,000 crore from Indian OEMs
Bosch showcased a plethora of personalized connected solutions to reinforce its stronghold in the Indian automotive industry as one of the leading components and service provider. The brand contributes to the industry with its technological knowhow in a range of fields like automation, electrification, connectivity and safety.
Bosch has been working relentlessly to ensure a smooth transition from BS4 to BS6. The company has meticulously collaborated with OEMs based in India to help them launch BS6 compliant cars through tailor-made solutions and requisite servicing. They have undertaken 70 BS6 projects worth Rs 24,000 crore from Indian OEMs.
Commenting on BS6 development, Sandeep N, Executive VP, Mobility Solutions, Bosch Limited, said "We’ve been working on BS6 since two years now. And Bosch as a system integrator is playing a significant role in terms of fuel injection systems, exhaust gas after treatment and this is a very inclusive approach. We’re working with OEMS and sevral suppliers on turbochargers, exhaust manifolds and in bringing up a vehicle that is BS6 compliant."
Recently launched scooters like the Bajaj Chetak and the TVS iQube Electric feature electric powertrains that are built by Bosch. Even the Tata Nexon EV boasts telematics components from Bosch. The brand offers customised electric powertrains that are not only carbon neutral but also optimized for a particular product.
Bosch’s driver assistance systems are enabled by data fusion and smartphone integration which makes it possible for all OEM’s to support the driver in complex and critical traffic situations. Features such as Electronic Stability Program (ESP), predictive emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, traffic jam assist aid in safety.
They also have a range of engine management systems designed for two-wheelers. These include components for fuel injection and supply, air management, ignition and exhaust-gas treatment, and engine control units. Apart from being BS VI compliant, the electronic engine control’s sensors provide significant benefits over the conventional carburetor systems, aiding fuel efficiency and reducing up to 16 per cent of CO2 emissions
A 48V hybrid system is commonly seen in many new cars. It facilitates powertrain electrification for small passenger cars with charging through brake energy recuperation. The system helps functions like torque assist, idle start-stop and coasting improving efficiency and the overall driving experience.
The Electronic Battery Sensor (EBS) provides information on the status of 12-V lead-acid batteries used in the electric vehicles, while keeping the battery aging effects at bay. By providing this relevant information, the EBS allows for the implementation of an optimized electrical-power management (EEM) system in the vehicle and supports fuel and CO2 saving technologies.
