Germany’s Robert Bosch and US solutions provider Airbiquity said they have formed a partnership to meet the growing demand for connected-vehicle services.
The pact will make it easier for Bosch’s Car Multimedia division to offer connected products and services to automakers.
The two companies said, in a press release, that they are already working on an in-car system for a major car company. They declined to say who that car company is. An announcement is expected before year-end.
Bosch, the world’s largest automotive supplier, said the cooperation would offer possibilities to better connect, integrate and further develop its automotive infotainment products and services.
Airbiquity is a leading provider of connected-vehicle solutions. It is currently rolling out its Choreo cloud-based platform for connected vehicle services worldwide.
David Jumpa, senior vice president, global business development for Airbiquity, said the cooperation is in line with growing consumer demand for telematics services in the car. Said the Airbiquity executive: “Together we can accelerate the expansion of connected vehicle services globally.”
