CES 2016: Bosch Concept Car Is All About Screens

From computers and tablets to smartphones, TVs and different car displays, most of our lives are 90 percent screens at this point and the Bosch Concept Car does nothing to diminish them.

In fact, the company‘s show vehicle brings even more touchscreen displays that transform its interior into a minimalistic place, which will require a lot of screen cleaner solution.

Leaving all puns aside, the automotive supplier says that its displays, which are found on the entire dashboard, on the door panels, on the center console and even on the transmission tunnel, have been designed to minimize driver distraction and they generate different surface textures when pressed.

What this actually means is that driver will be able to operate specific functions, such as the navigation or the radio, by simply touching the displays while keeping his / her eyes on the road. On top of that, a special lighting sequence is emitted in the advanced interior if a pedestrian approaches the car.

Other functions include connectivity with the driver’s diary and daily appointments, linked to the navigation system, and if an appointment is cancelled, the car will display a route to the next one.

The Bosch Concept Car was unveiled in late December and it apparently received the Innovation Award before the Consumer Electronics Show opened its gates.
