Significant faster repair by easier identification of error pattern
Combination of two powerful tools like VIN specific wiring diagrams and Augmented Reality
Integrating Augmented Reality and VIN specific wiring diagrams (ActiveSchematics) enables faster repairs and prevention of mistakes during the specific tasks.
Wiring diagrams are visualized only for affected components reducing time for error detection and
through AR information is displayed directly at the place where it is needed thus saving time for researching in various literature.
Bosch wins Automechanika Innovation Award
Application of Augmented Reality at Bosch's technical trainings
On September 11, 2018 Bosch received the Automechanika Innovation Award for its Augmented Reality application during service trainings. The jury bestowed the award on Bosch in the "Alternative Drive Systems & Digital Solutions” category. The award ceremony took place in Frankfurt, Germany, during the Automechanika trade show. First service trainings supported by Augmented Reality (AR) will start as of November 2018.
Software solutions for a connected workshop
High efficiency, utilization and repair quality
The “Internet of things”, the smart processing of large data volumes and the increasing connection between products and their environment bear huge potentials for automotive workshops. They can ease scheduling and planning of workshop appointments and improve the individual working steps in servicing. Vehicle data and repair history are already available as the customer hands over the vehicle, the data is automatically transferred between the service devices and stored by them.
Augmented Reality for automotive repair and service
Video about how Augmented Reality can be used in car repair shops
Thanks to Augmented Reality, identifying fault sources can be performed quicker and more efficiently. Repair information for the car is matched with the physical information on the vehicle, e.g. on a tablet screen. Even complex repair procedures can be accomplished quickly and easily. Watch how augmented reality glasses and the Bosch Common Augmented Reality Platform (CAP) are used to facilitate and speed up repair in a car repair shop.
Full view and comprehension for technical service trainings
Bosch trains automotive mechatronics with innovative Augmented Reality technology
Starting in autumn/winter 2018, Bosch will offer the first service training supported by Augmented Reality. The two-day apprenticeship for “high-voltage technicians – working on intrinsically safe HV vehicles” will be carried out at the Bosch Service Training Centers in Plochingen (Germany) and Ballerup (Denmark). Experience Augmented Reality upfront by yourself: Visit Bosch at Automechanika in Frankfurt in Hall 9 booth A06.
We were at Bosch ConnectedWorld!
The Internet of Things (IoT) Conference took place on 21 and 22 February in Berlin, Germany
Two days packed with Connected Mobility Aftersales Services and solutions are behind us. More than 3.800 conference and hackaton participants listened to over 140 speakers. Bosch Automotive Service Solutions had a breakout session about Services 4.0 with a presentation of Mr. Simon Meintema “No Thanks, my Car Does Not Need Service Anymore, Does It?”. The next Bosch ConnectedWorld will take on 15/16 May 2019 in Berlin, Germany.
Bosch VCI firmware for download
Firmware updates for Bosch VCIs
Bosch provides VCI users with all material around their test equipment for download. Choose your VCI and download the newest version of the firmware as as well as operation manuals, brochures and warranty manuals.
Product explanation via Augmented Reality
For the first time, Bosch uses Augmented Reality for the product explanation at its BEA 750 emission tester
Using the example of the BEA 750 emission tester, at Automechanika 2016, Bosch showed how to enrich the documentation of a workshop tester by multimedia contents with the aid of Augmented Reality. Bosch thus makes the innovative information system come alive and facilitates its direct use in everyday workshop life. In order to access multimedia product information, for instance, the user just has to point his tablet camera onto the cover of the product brochure.
New working methods for modern and connected workshops
Future-oriented AR solutions for servicing and repairs
Augmented Reality (AR) applications connect both real and virtual worlds as if it was the most normal thing in the world thus expanding reality by displaying useful and time-saving complementary information. Bosch supports everyday work of mechatronics by means of Augmented Reality solutions easing, for instance, complicated cases of repair. Pointing the device camera onto the vehicle, required additional information can be integrated into the real image using a tablet computer or smart glasses.
