Bosch Research

Research

Research is a fundamentally important part of what we do as Bosch — and it has formed part of Bosch’s DNA for over 130 years. We firmly believe that research is not an end in itself, but rather something that makes a tangible contribution to improving the quality of people’s lives. That belief is reflected in the words “Invented for life” that appear on our products.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things offers countless new possibilities and has a huge influence on almost every area of our lives – for example, on mobility, energy, manufacturing, agriculture, health, homes, and building. That´s why, at Bosch, almost every second position deals with software and the way we could improve and further develop it.
You can join us in bringing the Internet of Things forward, make products smarter, and establish completely new technologies.

The future of mobility

The demands on the electric and electronic systems (E/E systems) in modern vehicles are rising steadily. As the number of systems in the on-board network continues to grow, the increasing exchange of data through vehicle connectivity must also be managed reliably.
At our Bosch Engineering’s development, you will bring forward new mobility solutions, contribute to the powertrain’s efficiency and the comfort of today’s vehicles.

Mobility Solutions is the biggest Bosch Group business sector, accounting for 59 percent of total sales. Bosch is one of the leading automotive suppliers. In this role, it is pursuing a vision of mobility that is sustainable, safe, and exciting. As a supplier of automotive original equipment, Bosch is involved in many diverse fields.

Further activities involve two-wheelers, commercial as well as off-highway vehicles, and engineering services. In response to the profound structural change in the automotive sector, Bosch above all takes a technology-neutral stance toward powertrain development, including renewable synthetic fuels. In 2020 alone, Bosch made upfront investments of around 500 million euros in electromobility, including fuel cells. Bosch is also systematically improving its driver assistance systems for automation levels 1 and 2, working on hands-free highway assist systems, and developing automated driving to SAE levels 3 and 4. With its Cross-Domain Computing Solutions division, Bosch is responding to the changing requirements in the rapidly growing market for software-intensive electronic systems in the automotive sector.
