Bosch France has recruited thirty engineers for its new research and development activities based in Sophia Antipolis (Alpes-Maritimes) and focused on electronic assistance systems drive vehicles. Within VISIONTEC Bosch is the name of the future R & D center, engineers will conduct research "to strengthen the presence of Bosch in driver assistance systems, particularly those for the autonomous vehicle" .

First of all, the engineers will be developing integrated circuits comprising high-performance processors incorporating algorithms able to recognise images from the car’s on-board cameras.

The use of the latest semiconductor technologies will be at the heart of the work done by the research centre. “Particular attention will be given to the design of the system architecture, the components, the materials and software necessary for implementation of these solutions,” explains Frédéric Dosière, Director of the future Research and Development Centre.
