Jason Roycht, VP, Head of Commercial Vehicle and Off-road Business Unit, Bosch North America, takes to the NACV press conference stage to talk Bosch innovations.

At NACV, Bosch showcased its portfolio of solutions to develop fuel cells for CVs. The Bosch portfolio consists of essential components needed to implement fuel-cell technology, such as hydrogen gas injector (HGI), Anode recirculation blower (ARB), electric air compressor (EAC) and fuel cell stacks.

Bosch is also bringing electrification to medium-range delivery applications. The Deliver-E hybrid concept vehicle is the result of project funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. The goal is to design and integrate an advanced dual-planetary gear transmission featuring multiple clutches that reduces fuel consumption by up to 50 percent on a real-world drive cycle.

Bosch also displayed its new modular 700V drive, which can be integrated into multiple vehicle architectures. Comprised of a separate-motor-generator, an inverter and a vehicle control unit (VCU), the solution supports various transmission formats, including inline, wheel near and electric axle. The unique approach also allows CV manufacturers to electrify already-existing vehicle platforms

Sensors, like radar and video, assist drivers by providing more visibility to help prevent accidents. The Bosch portfolio of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) includes front and corner radar for light commercial vehicles as well as multiple-purpose cameras for both light and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. These enable a number of safety features, like automatic emergency braking, turn assistant and blind-spot recognition.

The Bosch Servotwin is an electrohydraulic steering system that provides steering support to the driver, enhancing driving comfort and improving safety. It enables driver assistance functions, such as lane-keeping assistance, side wind compensation and traffic jam assist. The system also provides a key building block for the rollout of automated features in the future.

Bosch is actively involved in the study of how automated technology can support the CV industry – particularly drivers – in the future. As part of a grant by the U.S. Department of Transportation to DriveOhio and the Transportation Research Center Inc. (TRC), Bosch will provide technology to help study highway truck automation and coordinated platooning.
