Electromobility (eMobility, EM) is one of the biggest trends in the automotive industry, and vehicle electrification is one of Bosch's strategic focuses worldwide. Electromobility technology contributes significantly to a better quality of life, above all through cleaner air locally and significantly lower traffic noise pollution.
The electrification of the vehicle powertrain also has a major impact on other vehicle systems and their behaviour. These effects and interactions are currently only partially known or not known at all and are still to be explored. The main tasks of the project are to carry out some of the activities necessary for the development of electric and hybrid powertrains and other specific systems for different vehicles. The electromobility theme covers the whole range of engineering development activities, hardware development (electronic and mechanical), software development, system development, validation, application and testing, and project management bringing them all together. Bosch is expected to be able to provide the complete energy storage, power conversion, transmission and control system for electric vehicle powertrains.
Engineering Center Budapest of Robert Bosch Kft. aims to become one of the Bosch Group's most important research and development campus for electric and hybrid powertrains and other related technologies, and one of the main R&D centers in East-Central Europe in the long term.
The planned budget of the project 2020-2.1.1-ED-2020-00062 is 5,028,062,751 forints of which 1,504,974,650 forints is non-reimbursable grant. The project will be implemented with funding from the Hungarian National Research, Development and Innovation Fund.
Engineering Center Budapest was established in 2005 as part of Robert Bosch Kft., and with around 3,000 development engineers, it is now the largest automotive development center in Europe – after Germany – within the Bosch Group. Engineering Center Budapest is an increasingly important location for Bosch's global development activities, plays an important role in the development of automated and electromobility and is one of the Bosch Group's most important research, development and test centers for automotive electronics.
