In order to bridge the various incompatible radio and protocol standards, Bosch has combined previously separate network and telematics boxes, each capable of only one transmission technology, in a central control unit for V2X data exchange. This means that a car can use the modified WiFi networks of the IEEE 802.11p standard, if available, and otherwise connect via mobile radio, for example. For less time- and security-critical information, the system can even tap into existing public or private WiFi hotspots to transmit its data. The management of protocol diversity is handled by software from Silicon Valley-based start-up Veniam, which uses parameters such as criticality, data volume and even transmission costs to determine and determine the most cost-effective transmission path for each data packet, explained a Bosch spokeswoman.

The Bosch system is available. According to the supplier, the first applications in production vehicles of various OEMs are expected around 2020/201.
