Bosch Announces Microsoft Partnership To Develop Software Platform For Vehicles

Bosch has announced a partnership with Microsoft for a software platform for vehicles. The company is hoping that this move will help it gain a dominant share in electromobility and automated driving technologies.


The software platform will ensure that vehicles’ control units and computers can get software updates throughout their lifetime, according to the German auto supplier.


“We are thus creating the conditions for wireless updates to work just as smoothly and conveniently on vehicles as they do on smartphones,” Bosch Managing Director, Markus Heyn said in a statement.

The technology will incorporate Microsoft’s Azure technology and software modules from Bosch. Bosch also wants to speedily deploy the technology with plans to use the software platform in vehicle prototypes by the end of 2021.


The companies will cooperate to adapt existing software tools to let automakers and suppliers simplify and accelerate their own software updates too.


This is not the first of such partnerships between Bosch and Microsoft. The company headquartered in Gerlingen, Germany, had in December 2019 used Microsoft Azure to create the Bosch Wrong-Way Driver Warning solution. The solution is aimed at improving traffic safety by detecting vehicles traveling the wrong direction on freeways and divided highways


Very recently, German carmaker Volkswagen AG announced a similar partnership with Microsoft. The partnership also included using its cloud computing services to help it streamline its software development efforts for self-driving cars.
