Bosch goes on the fast lane in the car computer business
In January, Bosch’ new Cross-Domain Computing Solutions division will start operations with 17,000 employees. The company has already collected orders worth 4 billion euros.

Bosch's modular logic is intended to enable a particularly high degree of flexibility in the development of vehicle computers for different vehicle models. For example, if a basic architecture of hardware and software is predefined, it can be adapted according to the customer's project along a predefined system. For premium vehicles, additional software modules or special chips are then added to the circuit boards to enable more functions.

In the next generation of vehicles, Bosch's central cockpit computer will initially take over the tasks of up to ten control units. As a result, automakers will be able to significantly reduce the number of ECUs, which in some cases number more than 100. "Vehicle computers are the key to reducing the complexity of electronic systems and making them as safe as possible," says Harald Kröger, member of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH. If more central high-performance computers are installed in the future, this will also save cable length - and thus costs, weight and installation space.
