Press release: Bosch and e.GO bring stress-free parking to Aachen

Automated valet parking will soon be offered in the new parking garage on the RWTH Aachen campus
 

  • Bosch and e.GO have agreed to collaborate on automated valet parking.
  • Bosch board of management member Hoheisel: “Manual parking is a thing of the past.”
  • Twelve e.GO Life cars are being readied for the automated valet parking service.
     

Aachen/Stuttgart – April 11, 2018 – This is what stress-free parking will look like in the future: pull up, step out of the car, pull out your smartphone, and use an app to tell your car to go park. This future will arrive in Aachen before the year is out, when the new parking garage for the production engineering cluster on the RWTH Aachen campus, built by Immofinanz in 2018, is equipped with Bosch automated valet parking. Now Bosch and the Aachen-based automaker e.GO have agreed to collaborate on this. Bosch will handle the infrastructure technology in the parking garage and will work with e.GO to integrate the start-up’s vehicles into the automatic valet parking service. The first stage will see automated valet parking implemented using up to 12 of e.GO’s Life electric cars. These cars are part of e.GO’s fleet, which the company makes available to its workforce for business trips and so they can present the automated valet parking service. In the second stage, Bosch and e.GO aim to improve parking-space utilization in the parking garage with the help of automated valet parking.

“Manual parking is a thing of the past. Bosch technology enables cars to park much better, saving drivers a great deal of time and avoiding stress,” says Dr. Dirk Hoheisel, member of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH. “Parking garages are the ideal habitat for compact, versatile city cars like the e.GO Life. Automated valet parking lets us achieve even more – namely, fitting up to 50 percent more vehicles in an existing parking garage. Customers pay only slightly more if they opt to have this technology in their e.GO Life,” says Prof. Günther Schuh, CEO of e.GO Mobile AG.

Press Release: Driver e-mobility e.GO and REHAU conclude strategic partnership

Aachen/Rehau, December 5, 2017 - Cars should become more environmentally friendly and efficient, the market for e-vehicles should finally be gaining momentum. EU commissioners are pushing for stricter regulations on CO2 limits, higher fines and an investment into the Europe-wide charging infrastructure. The creative minds headed by Günther Schuh, professor for machine construction in Aachen and founder of e.GO, are getting on with it: With the e.GO Life they have put a dynamic, attractive and affordable electric vehicle on the road which has caused quite a stir. REHAU, a worldwide successful development partner of the major in-dustry players, is now also a cooperation partner in this forward-looking project.

           

Electromobility is familiar territory for the experienced automotive supplier headquartered in Rehau/Upper Franconia, as is the RWTH Aachen Campus. "For many years already we have had a very constructive and mutually beneficial partnership," said Dr. Stefan Girschik, Deputy CEO of the REHAU Group. The creative energy and the urge to shape progress is literally palpable at the RWTH Aachen campus. "This fits in perfectly with our self-image of actively helping to shape the future of mobility as an experienced material specialist and innovative technology expert," emphasizes Girschik. E-mobility, autonomous driving, security, individualization and design as well as Industry 4.0 are all topics and trends that are currently being dealt with.

Press Release: Electric city buses change short-range public transportation

e.GO Mobile AG and ZF present market launch plans for an affordable on-demand electric city bus

Aachen/Munich, October 11, 2017 – Professor Schuh, CEO of e.GO Mobile AG, presented plans for bringing the e.GO Mover to market. At the NVidia GPU Technology Conference in Munich today, he announced a concrete timing plan: series production is planned in 2019. The basic version is expected to be sold for approximately 60.000 plus tax. Orders can be made in advance.

The electric bus is comparable in size to a sports utility vehicle, carries up to 15 people and enables an economic on-demand solution to traffic due to its favorable price. This increases the traditional supply of local public transport because passengers can use the electric busses via mobile service providers, which are independent from bus stops.
