Keynote: Transforming Software Development for Future Autonomous, Electrified, and Connected Commercial Vehicles
Micha Muenzenmay, Robert Bosch

Innovative use cases in the field of autonomous, electrified, and connected commercial vehicles, as well as changing usage, lead to the need to add functionality after production.
Today, software features are defined during development. Later, new functionality or application updates can only be done in the service workshop or by specialist on site, if at all.
To change this situation, Bosch develops an open ecosystem starting from the development environment in the cloud up to the global management, licensing, and distribution of software applications, with new simulation and model-based design approaches woven into the workflow. The ecosystem supports a uniform function development approach throughout the lifecycle of the vehicle, from concept through aftermarket.
This approach enables the introduction of customer-specific functionality, on short notice and at any time worldwide. A Firmware-Update-Over-The-Air (FOTA) as well as adding dedicated software applications (Software-Update-Over-the-Air, SOTA) is supported.
This presentation discusses the basic approach and development steps, and gives examples.
