Central vehicle computer and sensors

Let’s make hardware and software best friends.

Vehicles are evolving rapidly - and so is the market for automotive electronics. As your reliable partner, Bosch offers first-class consulting and supporting hardware to develop future-proof E/E architectures. These enable optimal management of large amounts of data across the entire vehicle, product, and technology portfolio.

Central vehicle computer and sensors

The megatrends electrified driving and automated driving will lead to a dramatic increase in functions, such as range optimization for electric vehicles and surroundings perception for driver assistance systems. Both of these developments are only to some extent realizable and manageable using classic electric/electronic (E/E) architectures. To manage the increasing complexity and connectivity, Bosch is working together with automobile manufacturers

to develop innovative E/E architectures in which new software solutions, powerful vehicle computers, and zone ECUs are integrated. With this, Bosch is already setting the appropriate course for future automotive developments that can meet the increased requirements of the megatrends and bring new vehicle functions onto the road safely, securely, and very economically.
