At CES 2019 in Las Vegas, Bosch presented a concept shuttle. The concept is designed to use an electric powertrain and 360-degree surround sensors and has connectivity management and vehicle computers.
Bosch says it is developing the necessary software platforms for what it believes consumers will want with shuttles in the future. For example, when a shuttle pulls up to the requested pick-up point, users can use their smartphones to identify themselves using Bosch’s Perfectly Keyless digital access service. It recognizes the owner’s smartphone much like a digital fingerprint and opens the vehicle only for them.
