Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality applications accelerate motor-vehicle repairs and support technical trainings
Survey proves the benefits of Augmented Reality applications in automotive workshops
By means of a field study at Bosch Car Service workshops, Bosch now analyzed the benefits of using Augmented Reality applications in everyday workshop life. The result: Using Augmented Reality applications, time savings of 15 percent in average per step taken are possible even on common vehicles and less sophisticated repair tasks such as e.g. removing specific components.

Augmented Word Expo (AWE) Europe 2017, October 19-20
Meet Bosch at the world’s largest Augmented Reality (AR) + Virtual Reality (VR) conference and expo
Bosch is gold sponsor of this event and will be exhibiting many use cases of applied Augmented Reality for different sectors of the Automotive industry. Use cases are for example AR as the central user interface in a connected workshop or AR applied for service, sales and marketing, training and production. Also applications with smart glasses like HoloLens,enabling to have both hands free, will be presented. Don’t miss to see new features about the Bosch CAP Platform like Live publication into HoloLens or Integration of latest tracking technology of Vision Lib. Meet us at AWE Europe in Munich in the MOC Exhibition Center on October 19-20, 2017.
Connected Workshop
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
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.
Augmented Reality
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.
