Platform, help vehicles and cloud seamless networking cooperation to accelerate the development of software-defined vehicles "software development between vehicle life cycle faster and more convenient" combined with automotive and" cloud computing expertise. Bosch in cooperation with Microsoft.
To create the next generation of automotive software in Stuygart and Munich - Bosch and Microsoft develop software platform, seamless series of vehicles and cloud, within automotive quality standards, simplify and accelerate the development and deployment of automotive software between vehicle life cycles. This new platform will be built on the Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform and integrates Bosch's software modules, which will be able to develop and download software directly to control components and car computers in the future. Further collaboration will focus on the development of tools that improve the efficiency of software development, which will stimulate innovation and reduce the cost of vehicle software development within and between organizations. For driving, the platform will enable it to get new features and digital services faster. Bosch's partnership with Microsoft will combine Bosch's extensive experience in software, electronics and systems with Microsoft's expertise in software engineering and cloud computing, and is expected to use this software platform in the first prototypes by the end of 2021.
In the future,
software will play a key role in the automotive
Co-development of automotive software Bosch in cooperation with Microsoft.
for the future will play an increasingly important role in future generations of cars. Without software, new trends such as electricity, autonomous driving and modern transportation services cannot be
made real, and more frequent updates and software upgrades are bound to accompany them. However, stringent security requirements complicate OTA software updates and digital services throughout the automotive product lifecycle. A wide range of vehicle series and models add to its challenges. This collaboration will benefit Bosch's expertise in electrical and electronic architecture, control units and vehicle computers, which are important for OTA vehicle updates. In addition, Bosch will contribute its expertise, as well as automotive software products and development tools, including basic software and intermediary software for automotive computers and control units, and cloud software modules to update the overall fleet of OTAs. "Having a full software platform from vehicle to cloud will reduce the complexity of software development and vehicle system integration." As a result, wireless updates to cars will be as smooth and convenient as they are on smartphones. Heyn said. With the seamless integration of software architectures for vehicles and the cloud, a pre-integrated platform will greatly reduce the complexity of OTA updates and help ensure that vehicle software remains up-to-date.
The Software Defined Cars
Development Alliance was established to provide developers with new software services Bosch and Microsoft further plan to enrich existing developer tools, simplify and accelerate their software development for automakers and suppliers, and adapt to the specific challenges of the automotive industry. The two companies plan to use GitHub's all-in-one enterprise platform and provide important open source on GitHub.com to encourage the industry to reuse coding and share best practices.
