STUTTGART/HANNOVER, Germany – At IAA Transportation 2022 in Hannover, the supplier of technology and services is presenting its innovations for the freight traffic of tomorrow – from the first mile to the last, much of it around safety-related advanced driver-assist systems (ADAS). The Bosch booth is in hall 20, number B22.

Here are some of the highlights which can be seen:

Precise object detection: The fifth-generation front and side radar ensures greater safety in the heavy truck segment, thanks to reliable and precise object detection in the area to the front and side of the vehicle.

Thanks to the sensors’ large detection range and high angular resolution, as well as their wide aperture, they can detect complex driving situations very quickly, accurately, and robustly. They employ novel chirp-sequence modulation to improve surround sensing by producing more detailed reflections.

As a result, both the front and side radar solutions are extremely precise when detecting and distinguishing between objects and people as well as their position, relative speed, and direction of movement – even when visibility is poor.

This means that Bosch radar sensors in heavy trucks can ensure greater safety for the driver and other road users by supporting functions such as automatic emergency braking or the future legal requirements of the EU General Safety Regulation (GSR) for a moving-off information system (MOIS) and a blind spot information system (BSIS).

Smart eyes: The third generation of the multifunction camera is tailored to the requirements of heavy trucks. With its unique multipath approach, the camera combines conventional image processing algorithms with AI-driven methods, giving it a key role in high-performance driver assistance systems.

It detects and processes objects and structures highly reliably and uses an innovative, high-performance system-on-chip (SoC) for image processing. The camera is designed for safety-relevant driver assistance systems and convenience functions such as the lane-keeping support system, and it also supports object-based functions such as automatic emergency braking.

Moreover, it also permits implementation of other helpful functions such as traffic sign recognition. This means the system supports the future legal requirements of the EU General Safety Regulation (GSR) on intelligent speed assistance for detecting speed limits and warning of exceeding them.
