Bosch turns connected devices into personal guardian angels

10 March 2021

Bosch turns connected devices into personal guardian angels with Help Connect - an app for automatic emergency assistance – on the road and at home.

  • Integrated solution: Help Connect combines automatic accident detection, emergency call function, and personal emergency response system 
  • Now available: in conjunction with apps for e-bikes and motorcycles, Help Connect now ensures greater two-wheeler safety
  • Bosch CEO Dr. Volkmar Denner: “We are leveraging Help Connect to turn connected devices into lifesavers in all circumstances.” 

''One careless moment is all it takes for someone to crash their e-bike or lose control of their motorcycle. In Germany alone, more than 38 two-wheelers are seriously injured in accidents every day (source: Federal Statistical Office). That’s when every second counts. But what if the person involved is traveling alone when the accident happens or if they are no longer in a position to call for help? This is where Bosch’s connected emergency call solution comes in. Help Connect accesses the sensors in the user’s smartphone and other connected devices and uses an intelligent crash algorithm to automatically detect accidents. In the event of an emergency, the app alerts the emergency services via the Help Connect emergency call center and immediately directs them to the scene of the accident. This saves time, and potentially also lives. Two apps are now available for cyclists and motorcyclists and thus for several hundred thousand users: the COBI.Bike app from Bosch eBike Systems and the calimoto app for motorcycle navigation.
