Furthermore, in Bosch convenience charging, the route planning & selection of charging points are highly flexible. Both of them adapt to driver’s preferences giving more enjoyable journeys.

Additionally, real-time data enables accurate range prediction. So, that adds to reliability.

Convenience charging for user friendly experience

The new user-friendly experience has numerous benefits. We will explain it with one example. An EV owner wants to go to a movie the very next day. So, s/he plans with a Bosch charging service from the comfort of the home at night. As a result, he gets benefits like personnel route planning, cost-effective charging, precise range prediction, and optimization. S/He also gets access to several charging points.

Furthermore, a home charging service from Bosch plans and controls the charging of vehicles. It plans the charging time and ensures electricity costs are as low as possible. The EV route planner plans the route according to charge status, occupants, driving modes, personnel preferences, and geographic features. It works out the ideal route to the movie theater, including the charging stops.

The route planner also knows the EV owner loves shopping trips. So it locates the charging station at the favorite shopping destination of the EV owner. Now in the morning, the EV owner is ready to go for the movie. S/He looks into the app, and the app shows s/he can go safely to the destination and charge the vehicle. When the EV owner gets into the car, Bosch onboard system detects the smartphone. Bosch convenience charging system then sends the data to the vehicle’s navigation system automatically. The owner starts the journey.

The intelligent system:

Furthermore, in route, the owner changes the plan and takes a detour. First, the route planner informs the owner that the current battery status is insufficient to reach the movie theater. Then the system offers alternate charging options. It reserves the charging point on the new route. The owner then plugs in the vehicle for charging. He gets the charging status and estimated charging time of the vehicle on his smartphone. The system informs the owner when the required charging level is reached. So, the owner is now ready to go for a movie with a detour. S/He can park at a reserved charging spot at the movie theater, and the car is ready to go home, charged.

Seamless integration from App to Car

Bosch convenience charging solution not only supports drivers inside the car but outside too. The seamless integration between the smartphone and the head unit inside the car makes it possible. Moreover, users can access the same services and information directly from smartphones. So, they can access all the information from wherever they are.

Furthermore, the users can switch services back and forth from vehicle to phone and vice versa. This seamless integration brings a new user experience and adds to the convenience. For example, users can select the route from the comfort of the home. Moreover, once in a car same route automatically transfers to the car’s head unit, and the user can continue the journey more easily.
