Solutions for Success
Bosch has developed the Climo mobile air lab that provides real-time measures of city air quality so countermeasures can be taken sooner rather than later.

“A lot of verification of functions is done by simulation with computer tools, but at the end you have to make sure that the driver benefits and that the system is safe, so you also have to still do road testing like we did in the past,” points out Karl Haupt of Conti. Looked at another way: someone could be a master at Gran Turismo Sport and not be able to drive out of their subdivision without running into a rubbish container or parked car.

The Evolution to Autonomy
According to Continental’s Karl Haupt, the move to automated driving is one that will come in increments, not sudden disruptions.

Yes, this is a lawn mower. But not just any grass clipper. The Indego 400 Connect is able to determine the best path for cutting the lawn and then executing, but it is also smartphone-enabled. Tech like this can help with the development of the tech that will drive you to the golf course (because you don’t need to be cutting your lawn because the robotic lawn mower is doing it for you).

Bosch Advances Autonomy (Even for Lawns & Parking Garages)
Robotic lawn mowers and self-parking technologies—these are the sorts of things that are making autonomous technology possible and more appealing.

Bosch, SAP to Collaborate on Internet of Things
Robert Bosch GmbH and software developer SAP SE have agreed to work together on internet-connected systems for industrial equipment, tools, vehicles and other devices.

Paul Elio, founder and CEO of Elio Motors, plans to launch this vehicle that will be built in the former GM Shreveport Stamping and Assembly plant sometime in 2017. Note well that this isn’t a “niche” vehicle in terms of what he anticipates in terms of production volume, as they’re creating capacity that will allow the build of 1,000 units per day, two shifts.

Does Paul Elio Have Disruptive Technology?
Paul Elio says he recently read The Innovator’s Dilemma by Clayton Christensen (Harvard Business Review Press; 1997) and he thought that it was, in effect, telling the story of Elio Motors (, the company that Elio established in 2009 to create a transformative motor vehicle.

Bosch Sees Increasing Hybridization
Bernd Bohr, then-chairman of the Bosch Automotive Group (, made some interesting observations at a technical event in mid-June (he retired from his position at the end of June 2013) that indicate the auto industry is on a path toward increased electrification, whether this means hybrids or electric vehicles (Bosch is behind the electric drive system in the Fiat 500e). Bohr pointed out that globally, most cars run on gasoline or diesel and are likely to through the end of the decade.
