Bosch announced their collaboration with Microsoft on Thursday to work on a software platform for vehicles. It aims to get a foot in the door of automated driving technology and electromobility’s fast-growing market. The software platform will use cloud technologies to ensure the availability of software for control units of vehicles and computers throughout their lifetime.
The company declared that they will use the software platform in the vehicle prototypes by the end of 2021. This will be based on Microsoft Azure and will include software modules from Bosch. “We are thus creating the conditions for wireless updates to work just as smoothly and conveniently on vehicles as they do on smartphones,” said Bosch Managing Director Markus Heyn.
The companies will also take initiatives to simplify and accelerate the updates of the existing software tools by being cooperative and adapting to the automakers and suppliers. The German carmaker Volkswagen AG announced a similar cooperation with Microsoft last week to streamline its software development efforts for self-driving cars using its cloud computing services.
