Tobias Matter, Bosch: “Gathering data is an objective for every player in the market right now”
“We need to have the possibility of testing vehicles with automated functions on public roads in Romania. We can contribute to the development of this kind of projects in the country, but we are not able to do our testing without the legislation allowing us to do so,” Tobias Matter, Head of Bosch Engineering Center Cluj said during Automotive R&D Power Breakfast organized by Automotive Today and The Diplomat-Bucharest.
“In the future, we will have less ECUs in the car. Today, we have up to 100 ECUs in the cars. In the future, we will have more centralized units. Software-defined vehicles offer huge flexibility in the future, adding features and up-to-date software.
Gathering data is an objective for every player in the market right now. We are gathering data and we need to figure out what to do with it. We are working to further transform our organization into a mobility software company. We have more than 44,000 software engineers, and 38,000 of them are working in the automotive industry.
We will double our activities here in Romania in the next years. We see a much more collaboration between our separate entities within the Bosch organization.”
