This isn’t a far-off dream for sci-fi fans. At the 2016 Automotive Aftermarket Parts Expo (AAPEX), Bosch said it expects to bring the futuristic technology to the aftermarket in 2017.
The Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) will be held Tuesday, Nov. 1, through Thursday, Nov. 3, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, with AAPEXedu (educational) sessions starting on Monday, Oct. 31.
