Bosch E-Bike Design Vision with Built-in ABS and Computer

In the nearest future, small urban vehicles will be saturated with high-tech components that can significantly improve the efficiency and safety of travel. Bosch demonstrated the concept of a futuristic e-bike equipped with a computer and ABS system.

At present, the company has announced only the concept of the bicycle of the future. It is not yet possible to test EBike Design Vision on real tracks. However, in the following models of electric bicycles, some elements proposed in the concept by Bosch engineers may appear.

The developers position EBike Design Vision as an “urban sports cruiser” with versatile characteristics, allowing it to be used for everyday city trips as well as for Sunday trips to nature. The bicycle of the future will receive the Nyon on-board computer, which is already in use in particular motorcycle models from Bosch; that will hit the market at the end of this year. For motorcycles, a circuit will be used to remove the control unit, while in EBike Design Vision, the computer will be integrated into the bicycle frame.

The Nyon computer for EBike Design Vision will be built into the steering wheel. Besides, all control levers, hydraulics and electrical wires will be hidden inside the frame. Another innovation in the electric bicycle will be the use of the Bosch EBike ABS system, which is also used in production Bosch motorcycles.

The ABS system will be able to stabilize the bicycle during abrupt braking by adjusting the pressure in the front brake to prevent the rear part of the EBike from lifting.

In the EBike Design Vision concept, all systems are fully integrated into a carbon frame with ventilated channels to prevent heat build-up. The battery is embedded in the lower part of the frame and can be removed for charging.

The demonstration of EBike Design Vision takes place on the tenth anniversary of the presentation of the first drive system for Bosch electric bikes. The company claims that environmentally-friendly, compact and fuel-efficient vehicle using electricity is becoming increasingly popular with urban residents.
