Bosch to showcase latest ADAS and Secure Diagnostic Access at UKGBE

Bosch Mobility Aftermarket will demonstrate its latest technology at the UK Garage & Bodyshop Event (UKGBE) at the NEC in Birmingham on 5th and 6th June.

Event attendees will be able to see demonstrations and hear from Bosch’s experts in two key areas: Automated Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and their solution to access protected vehicle data: Secure Diagnostic Access (SDA). Tickets to the event are free.

Sales director of Bosch Mobility Aftermarket UK and Ireland, Kevin Kelly, said: “This is a crucial event for the aftermarket industry and we’re as excited as ever about attending the show and talking to so many people who use our products and services every day.

“We provide our customers with a complete range of diagnostic and workshop equipment and a wide range of spare parts for passenger cars and commercial vehicles and we’ll be demonstrating our latest technology and all the new features we’ve been developing.”

In recognition of the increasing prevalence of ADAS fitment to vehicles coming into independent workshops, Bosch will devote a large part of its stand to demonstrations and discussions around this important topic. The latest developments for the established Bosch DAS 3000 platform will be on show, and Bosch experts will be on hand to provide demonstrations and answer questions. Bosch will provide an immersive and informative experience for show visitors.

Key Features:

  • Doppler simulator adapter for computer guided Rear Short Range Radar calibration
  • Rear view camera calibration mat with computer guided positioning
  • Target board for computer guided lidar calibration
  • Specific adapter for computer guided positioning of Toyota/Honda long range radar calibration

Another demonstration at Bosch’s stand is ESI[tronic] Evolution Diagnostic software, which offers garage owners direct access to Bosch diagnostics experts’ knowledge. New features for 2024 include a new user interface and start screen, direct access to diagnostic features of ESI[tronic] Evolution, and technical documents where original equipment manufacturer information is directly accessible in ESI[tronic] Evolution.

Many vehicle manufacturers now restrict diagnostic access to their electronics and systems, meaning that everyday maintenance tasks, calibrations and even service resets are only possible with a dealer tool. This poses a significant challenge to independent workshops and technicians, but Bosch has the solution: SDA (Secure Diagnostic Access). This provides access to vehicle manufacturer-protected systems, via a one-time registration and is included in Bosch’s ESI[tronic] main packages.

Key Features:

  • One combined hardware and software solution – no need for multiple tools, logins and different payment concepts
  • One single login and registration for all participating manufacturers
  • SDA already included in Bosch ESI[tronic] main software packages
  • SDA covers 24 brands, more will join soon, and all are included at no additional cost.

Bosch will offer both ADAS and SDA demonstrations on both days of the event (June 5th and 6th) at 10.30-11.00, 13.30-14.00 and 15.00-15.30 on the Bosch Mobility Aftermarket stand, number F40.
