Modern vehicles are becoming increasingly defined by software. With growing requirements for automation, personalization, and efficiency, however, the complexity of software and systems is rapidly increasing. In order to overcome this challenge, collaboration with a variety of players is crucial. Thanks to comprehensive software competence and automotive expertise, Bosch is the right partner to optimally implement its wide range of competencies for and with its customers.
The vehicle is developing more and more into a software-defined vehicle (SWdV). Electronic control units (ECUs) must take on more and more tasks in the E/E architecture and link different domains together. The smart orchestration of the ECUs is done by software, which is becoming increasingly more comprehensive and complex. At the same time, software development cycles are significantly shorter.
To overcome these challenges together, cooperative collaboration of various companies (OEMs, suppliers, and platform providers) is crucial. This joint development requires a new mindset, a holistic understanding, and transparency across the entire process. Bosch acts as a supportive partner in this process, from the development of common standards and methods to the selection and implementation of required tools, and continuing through to execution.
The goal is to establish an initial personal contact, which forms the basis for a trusting partnership. This includes a common understanding of the customer’s specific needs: What is the goal? What is the current situation? And what are the possible obstacles?
In step two, the complete Bosch portfolio – including standard solutions that are common on the market – is reviewed for existing solutions. Are there already products, models, or approaches that could be helpful for the partner’s specific requirements? Together, options are discussed and assessed.
Together, we examine to what extent customized developments must be added to existing solutions. Are adjustments, other participants, or other tools required to achieve the goals?
Together, additional specific solutions for the customer are developed that are targeted at individual goals and challenges. A customized solution is created for the customer from components of the existing portfolio and individual new developments.
Collaborative development requires a holistic understanding of the partnership – with common standards, clear allocation of tasks, defined interfaces, and tools.
On this basis, the smooth exchange of data between the partner, Bosch, and the neutral common development environment is ensured.
Bosch knows about the strong connection of different competencies and the resulting strength of innovation. Therefore, Bosch is open to partnerships
to advance the technologies of tomorrow together. For a new era of mobility – sustainable, safe, and exciting.
Bosch sees itself as a trailblazer and a partner who is at its customers’ side as they develop the technologies of the future together – from idea to completion. In doing so, Bosch provides support as early as the implementation of processes with its many years of experience in developing
software solutions, a deep understanding of mobility, and a comprehensive software and hardware portfolio. This experience helps recognize possible hazards quickly and identify the right processes, tools, and partners to develop the best possible solutions together.
