Bosch receives PSA Peugeot CitroŽn Suppliers' Award This year's PSA Peugeot CitroŽn Group Suppliers' Awards went to the Bosch Group as the winner in the Innovation category: PSA's purchasing department honored Bosch's Side View Assist system for the new CitroŽn C4 and the HYbrid4 technology developed for the Peugeot 3008 as the most innovative automotive electronics products this year.

Using ultrasonic sensors, the Bosch blind-spot monitoring system “Side View Assist” can register objects three meters to the side and diagonally to the rear of the vehicle. Its role is to assist drivers in dangerous situations, especially when changing lanes. In the event of a real danger, the driver is first of all warned by a visual alarm and then by an acoustic alarm.

The Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 will be launched shortly as the world's first full hybrid diesel vehicle. Bosch collaborated on developing the car and preparing it for series production. The company supplies key electronic components such as electric motors and power electronics intended for the diesel four-wheel drive powertrain developed by PSA Peugeot Citroën.
