A few days ago, Bosch China Innovation and Software Development Center Phase II officially started construction, which marked another substantial cooperation between Bosch Group and Wuxi on scientific and technological innovation.
One year ago, Bosch China Innovation and Software Development Center was set up in Wuxi Economic Development Zone. At present, it has built 18 competence centers including function application development, basic software development, functional safety, software testing and operating system foreground-background development, which cover fields such as electric drive management system, hydrogen fuel cell, autonomous driving, smart cockpit and Internet of Vehicles in intelligent transportation.
Bosch China Innovation and Software Development Center Phase I with an area of 5,000 square meters that was put into use previously could not meet the rapid expansion of the R&D team. As a result, office areas and software laboratories with an area of 4,000 square meters will be built on both side of the main buildings of Phase I, so as to meet the development needs. The total number of engineers in the center will exceed 400 in 2021. It is predicted that the annual sales revenue will exceed 100 million yuan. At the same time, there will be more test beds to develop complete software and system testing capabilities. In addition, the center plans to invest more than 10 million yuan to continue to improve capacity building and new employee training.
