Bosch connected car concept makes driving and living easy (pictures)

Technology exhibited by Bosch at CES 2016 shows us how an autonomous car can also be connected to your home and office, act as your personal assistant, and even find its own parking spot.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

The car of the future includes easy switching between manual and autonomous driving, in this case accomplished by merely touching your thumbs to the steering unit.

Drivers can access functions like climate control without even looking. A sweep to full blast and the button gives out a haptic bump, letting the driver know the maximum has been reached.

While in automated mode, drivers can take a Skype call or get other tasks done.

Swiping left or right will bring up different functions, while rotating a finger clock-wise will switch within screens of the same function.
