The annual Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas showcases new consumer technologies. The CES Innovation Awards are presented to the most well designed and innovatively engineered consumer electronics. Bosch’s display unit for motorcycles or the rider information system won the award in the In-Vehicle Audio/Video category.
You know how you can answer calls and have a digital screen displaying all the essential information in almost all modern cars? Bosch’s Integrated Connectivity Cluster (ICC) puts this functionality in a motorcycle.
Why is Bosch’s display unit different from other similar products?
The system connects to all the instruments of a motorcycle and displays all the information like speed, fuel, ABS status etc. on a display screen. The screen adapts to the driver’s current status and displays only the information the driver needs. If the driver is speeding, everything on the screen will fade away except for the speed indicator and warning signs.
The system connects to the driver’s smartphone and helmet headset via Bluetooth. All of the smartphone’s important features are controllable using a handlebar remote. The screen is easy to read in all weather conditions and can endure rain too. Moreover, it adapts to different conditions by changing its brightness according to the time of the day.
