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.
