Passion for tomorrow.
From vision to reality.
In the course of the rapidly changing automotive markets, the demand for innovative and high-performance vehicle system solutions is rising significantly. Increasingly, these can only be implemented by means of a high degree of component networking or fundamentally new E/E architectures. At the same time, a cross-domain development methodology that focuses on customer requirements (UX) via so-called experiential vehicle functions, or features, is gaining in importance ever more.
With "Vehicle System Solutions", Bosch Engineering offers a service portfolio for complete vehicle development that is geared to current market trends and meets increasingly complex requirements.Together we bring your vehicle vision to the road.
Your development partner for integrated and individual vehicle system solutions
We support you with vehicle development services along the entire development process.
The consulting services of Bosch Engineering cover the entire product development process. Joint vehicle conception lays the foundation for the later success of the project. Through user analyses and benchmark comparisons, we work with you to define what features the new vehicle should have and how these should be designed to meet your characteristic brand values or respectively to your brand DNA. Together we determine use cases and the vehicle features, which have to be provided for the realization and develop a first concept of the E/E architecture. To increase efficiency and master the system, we also consult you on processes, methods and tools as well as on model-based system development.
To implement a feature in a vehicle, a large number of sensors, actuators and control units must be networked in the E/E network. With our services, we map the process between feature conception and creation of specifications for you. This process includes the transformation of each feature into individual functions, the analysis of which modules in the E/E architecture can best execute them, and the definition of the specifications for the individual software and hardware modules. In addition to the technical requirements, we also take the aspects of "functional safety", "cybersecurity" and "diagnostics" into account. And this even in the early phase of feature development, resulting in holistically coordinated specifications.
Cross - domain function development
Functions can no longer be assigned to individual systems or components. This makes implementation a cross-domain task in which different development departments work together. Based on the consistent and complete specification, the respective software functions are defined, programmed and implemented on the different control units in the vehicle. In this development step we manage the project teams, the definition and control of development milestones and functional testing up to the implementation of diagnostic functions and functional safety.
The functional cross-domain integration includes the calibration and testing of individual functions in software and hardware. In order to ensure the best possible behavior of the entire subsystems in the vehicle along the functional chains, communication and power supply networks must be optimally designed. We assume the validation and verification for you with the help of simulations, test bench investigations and vehicle tests at subsystem and overall vehicle level.
