‘Warning! A wrong-way driver is headed your way!’ Bosch’s system now a feature in Skoda vehicles
With its cloud-based wrong-way driver warning system, Bosch has developed a solution that warns both the wrong-way driver and all road users at risk of the impending danger within seconds – much faster than traffic news on the radio. Skoda is the world’s first automaker to opt for the Bosch wrong-way driver warning system.
Thanks to a new infotainment app, Skoda drivers will receive the lifesaving warning directly via the display in their vehicle’s cockpit. “Our goal is to put the wrong-way driver warning system in every car – in line with our “Invented for life” ethos. Every death, every injury caused by wrong-way drivers is one too many,” says Mathias Pillin, president of Bosch’s new Cross-Domain Computing Solutions division.
Starting in the first quarter of 2021, Skoda will offer the wrong-way driver warning system in numerous models, such as the Superb, Scala, Kamiq, Karoq, and Kodiaq, equipped with infotainment systems. Other vehicle models are scheduled to follow before the year is out.
