Bosch, is the technology lord of automobile industry, from ABS to FI systems, this Company has made a name , big name for itself. Considered among one of the most reputed companies throughout the world, Bosch with obvious reasons has a big presence in Indian market also.
To further strengthen its hold on the Indian market, and what will be a significant step ahead for the Indian two wheeler industry, auto component leader Bosch has announced that it has developed an affordable and robust engine management system that is aimed at making low-cost two wheelers in the Asian markets including India more intelligent and efficient
The Indian sub continent is ruled by commuters and quarter litre two - wheelers as against the bigger motorcycles and scooters of UK and US markets. Since, almost the entire majority still lying with the carburetted technology in this part of the land, Bosch, see this as an opportunity to create a way in bringing the Fuel Injection Technology to the masses. Bosch estimates that by 2020, the global two wheeler industry will grow from 60 million units to 110 million units per annum. Asia is expected to account for 4 out of 5 two wheelers sold by the turn of the decade and this is the geography that the German auto component major is so bullish about.
In order to suit price-sensitive target markets, Bosch has developed an engine management system which will see FI technology replace the carburettors to achieve reduced fuel consumption of up to 16%. The new Bosch engine management system is not just limited to fuel-injection technology but also can be extended to give the vehicles a digital intelligence. The ECU (engine control unit), apart from governing the combustion, can also be used to provide a comprehensive onboard computer (instantaneous fuel consumption, DTE, etc), diagnostics and smartphone-based anti-theft immobilizer. The functionality can further be extended to Bluetooth connectivity, vehicle-to-vehicle interaction, etc.
Given to the utter significance the two wheelers hold in the daily lives of millions and millions of road users throughout the Indian subcontinent, this step by Bosch, might just be the turning point where these markets meet technology which will help bringing the future energy and emission requirements in control.
