The contemporary world has seen India make rapid progress across industry sectors in the recent past, a trend that is set to continue over the next decade manufacturers (OEMs) and component manufacturers in the country today aspire to achieve global eminence, with the future of the industry being shaped by multiple trends, policies, and discontinuities. Industries studies and surveys support this outlook, making it important for organizations to develop the required capabilities to help build a supportive manufacturing ecosystem.
The provision of the required products and services is a key component of this endeavor. For OEMs to succeed in the automotive sector, it is mandatory for them to evaluate the unique requirements of every case to adapt to the dynamic nature of the industry. The condition of requisite infrastructure such as roadways and the need to integrate contemporary technology into the functioning of systems are just some of the factors to be considered. Local manufacturers in India possess the knowledge and experience required to perform such evaluations and it is from them that Bosch obtains successful insights for its operation. This merges with European technology and safety features that have been perfected over many decades, making Bosch a successful two-wheeler component provider. Local engineering facilitates the superior understanding of both the Indian infrastructure as well as how equipped the two-wheelers should be.
The superior technology employed by Bosch not only ensures the smooth running of the bikes but also allows two-wheelers and power sports vehicles to fulfill new emission regulations. Travelling at high speeds on highways and roadways can often lead to fatal road accidents. With effective ABS, such accidents can be prevented. Bosch offers a sophisticated ABS that helps riders stay in control of their vehicles in situations where sudden requirements of brakes can be experienced. The ABS technology prevents the wheels from locking up and enables them to maintain traction control with the ground so that the rider can always retain steering control. The company is at the forefront of developing such technologies and safety systems for two-wheelers. Additionally, Bosch also understands that driving significant change also requires educating riders about safety features and safe riding habits. It narrowed down two-wheeler safety to two key sections – effective braking and reliable engine performance, resulting in a cent percent success of its Arctic to Antarctica journey.
Bosch has set up the BMDC-Bosch Management Development Center specifically to train the workforce and adhere to the Indian traffic pattern. Local Engineering and manufacturing are given due emphasis to obtained better knowledge and expertise in the Indian driving pattern, traffic conditions and state of roads so as to enable adaptable mobility solutions. Local engineering talent partnering with global OEMs can help make this a reality. As Bosch ideates on new mobility and technology solutions, it is compelled to be aware of all the above to make the innovations a success specifically when spoken about the India Road facilities and traffic. Locally developed products complement the products in established markets: a common-rail injection system developed in-house for Indian diesel vehicles has also proved suitable for small vehicles in other countries.
The company’s continuous success in innovation is a result of its unwavering commitment to solving problems that will benefit society. Bosch and its plan of enormous expansion requires focus to be built on all the aspects of variable transmissions which will be best executed by people of the nation themselves. It plans to leave no stone unturned in the automotive sector for all kinds of vehicles and will continue sustaining its position as the market leader.
