Bosch is showing off its self-driving car prototype in Australia this week, and it could give us a glimpse of Tesla's Autopilot 2.0 plans.Bosch, most commonly known as a German kitchen appliance designer, has released the self-driving car for the ITS World Congress in Melbourne, Australia.

It marks the first time a self-driving vehicle has driven on Australian roads.Bosch has been working on a vehicle automation system for five years that can be used on any car, Gavin Smith, President of Bosch Oceania, told Business Insider in an email.

For this demonstration, Bosch used a Tesla Model S, but it stripped the car of its Autopilot hardware and replaced the sensors with its own technology.

It's worth noting that Bosch is Tesla's only known Autopilot supplier.

As Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted in July, the German company makes the radar sensor for Tesla's semi-autonomous system.

Promising call today with @BoschGlobal, maker of our radar sensor.
