SMART INFRASTRUCTURE BY BOSCH
Parking from BEDROCK
Ford Motor Company, Bedrock and Bosch are launching a demonstration project with connected Ford Escape test vehicles that can drive and park themselves inside Bedrock’s Assembly Garage in Detroit using Bosch smart infrastructure.
Using a set of infrastructure-based sensors in Bedrock‘s Assembly Garage, vehicles drive and park themselves inside the enclosed garage.
Drivers benefit from reducing the stress of looking for a parking space; garage operators and residents benefit from automated valet parking solutions that increase parking capacity.
Park the vehicle without the driver
Vehicle park request
Upon arriving into the garage, the driver will leave the vehicle in a designated area and use a smartphone app to send the vehicle to park.
The infrastructure sensors recognize and localize the vehicle to guide its parking maneuver, including the ability to help avoid pedestrians and other hazards. If the infrastructure senses something in the vehicle’s path, it can stop the vehicle immediately.
Return the vehicle to its driver
Vehicle return request
Drivers will also use the app to request the return of the vehicle to the designated pick-up area.
The infrastructure sensors recognize and localize the vehicle to guide its maneuver, including the ability to help avoid pedestrians and other hazards. If the infrastructure senses something in the vehicle’s path, it can stop the vehicle immediately.
food for thoughts ...
Is the interconnectivity between real estate and mobility necessary to provide adequate parking experience?
What are the additional services to imagine for the parking area? What about electric charging?
