Bosch and e.GO to collaborate on automated valet parking

Automated valet parking is an important milestone on the road to autonomous driving. It is also one of the services in the portfolio of Bosch’s new Connected Mobility Solutions division. This is how it works: drivers simply leave their car in a drop-off area at the entrance to the parking garage. Using a smartphone app, they then instruct it to make its own way through the parking garage to a vacant parking space. Later, they instruct the car to meet them at the pick-up area in exactly the same way.
