Bosch Partners with Microsoft to Develop Vehicle Platform to Integrate Cars and Cloud Efficiently

Bosch and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) plans to develop a software platform to seamlessly connect cars to the cloud.  The plan is to simplify and push the development and deployment of vehicle software through a car in accordance with automotive quality standards.  The platform will be based on Microsoft Azure and incorporate software modules from Bosch as it will enable software development and download to control the units and vehicle computers. 

“Bosch already securely updates car software over the air today. With the comprehensive platform for software-defined cars, we want to further empower automakers to develop new functions and get them on the road faster.”  Dr. Markus Heyn, member of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH said. “Bosch already securely updates car software over the air today.
