Brose shows systems for intelligent mobility experiences

Automated driving, electrification and connectivity paired with shared mobility are changing the way we get from point A to point B. The focus is on the demand for more customization, flexibility and comfort.
To satisfy these requirements, we are connecting our mechatronics components with proprietary software and sensor technology to create intelligent systems. This is how Brose is enabling innovative features and shaping new mobility experiences.

Convenient access

When approaching the parked car, the vehicle recognizes and welcomes the driver with window projections. The user makes a gesture to signal the desire to enter. The door opens automatically. At the same time, the steering wheel lowers into the dashboard and the seat adjusts automatically to make boarding easier.

This new access experience is made possible by our ability to seamlessly blend our vehicle access and interior expertise. Our portfolio comprises all of the necessary components from power opening latches and side door drives to collision and anti-trap protection sensors.

Brose brings its experience as a long-standing market leader for power liftgate systems to the development process.

Sitzverstellung

Adaptable interior

In the future passengers will decide how they wish to spend their drive. Whether they choose to work, relax or drive the vehicle themselves: electronically controlled seats, screens and storage areas automatically coordinate their positions and the flow of air from the AC system adjusts accordingly.

A newly developed Brose rail system allows interior elements to move independently of one another. If desired, the back seat can rearrange to form two individual seats with power adjuster features that allow passengers to fully recline for ultimate relaxation – or the interior can flexibly adapt to offer maximum cargo space. This happens quietly and quickly thanks to our drives.

Integrated cargo modules in the seat rail make it possible to use the entire vehicle as a cargo space. Charging boxes, even pets can be secured by them, e-scooters can be connected to the modules. The modules feature a data and power interface that enables the use of additional services such as battery charging.

Extending reach and maximizing comfort

Alongside the vehicle drive system, air conditioning for the vehicle interior and the battery consume the majority of energy in electric cars – which means that maintaining the ideal temperature during a trip reduces range. Brose significantly increases the efficiency of electric vehicles with its integrated thermal management approach. The core element of the system is our electric climate compressor.

The product works with common operational voltages from 48 to 810 volts and runs with both chemical and natural refrigerants. This enables ultra-fast charging and makes it possible to use the compressor as a heat pump.

Brose also develops compact thermal modules that integrate other components such as heat exchangers alongside the compressor for even greater efficiency advantages. The systems generate heat and cold in a closed circuit and control how they are distributed throughout the vehicle based on specific requirements.Optionally, the system is available with a hermetically sealed refrigerant circuit. The circuit is prefilled by Brose and operates maintenance-free.

New high-performance sensors

A gesture or flick of the foot is all it takes to “magically” open doors or liftgates. What is more, they can identify obstacles and stop movement before a collision occurs.

The same applies to seats that move and fold automatically. It is important that passengers are not injured and the interior of the vehicle is not damaged in the process. Brose has developed powerful radar sensors for this purpose. Their precise and reliable functionality makes many new comfort features possible in the first place.

But the sensors offer a number of additional functions: from parking assist and anti-theft protection to interior monitoring that can identify and distinguish between small children and pets.

Access systems for driverless shuttle buses

Just moments after purchasing a ticket via an app, a driverless shuttle bus approaches. The passenger authenticates himself at a control interface. Sensors ensure a safe entry and exit.

Robotaxis and autonomously powered buses – known as people movers – will play an increasingly important role in urban mobility scenarios of the future.

Brose has teamed up with a partner to engineer an access concept for people movers.

Among other features, the system includes control interfaces, obstacle detection and techniques for vehicle doors that open and close fully automatically. We also develop safe, comfortable solutions for standing and leaning during transport.

Systems for more driving fun

Brose has been actively involved in the emerging e-bike market since as early as 2014 and is one of the top three suppliers of drives with mid-hub motors in Europe, the strongest sales region. 150 employees at our Berlin- based e-bike competence center develop and produce systems used worldwide in models made by 50 manufacturers.

The drives are especially popular among high-performance riders in the sport sector. The Brose portfolio includes drives for any number of applications from city bikes to mountain bikes along with displays and battery packs. Digital services and the systematic approach are becoming increasingly important in the development of e-bike systems as electrically powered bicycles become more connected. Software-based service tools which dealers and bike shops use for troubleshooting and maintenance are essential elements of our system portfolio. This also includes an app that lets cyclists customize assistance levels and record their routes.

Electric scooters

Due to environmental and climate laws, Asia is emerging as a promising market for electrically powered small vehicles like scooters and motorcycles. Brose wants to tap into this potential and will begin supplying motors, control units and power electronics for e-scooters in India starting in 2022. In doing this, we are helping to improve the air quality, particularly in cities.

We are expanding our portfolio to include drives for many different performance classes, software solutions for battery management and conversion kits for conventional two-wheelers.

Drohne

The future of parcel delivery

Unmanned delivery drones are expected to relieve the burden on inner-city traffic in the future. Fewer trucks and transporters on the roads mean less greenhouse gases and air pollution.

Brose is partnering with an international online retailer to develop the highly efficient drive units for drones required by this sector. Our established quality standards help us meet the stringent demands of the aviation industry. The first prototypes will take off in 2021.
