Lutz Bürkle & team

Driving without accidents. This is Lutz Bürkle’s vision. Already today driver assistance systems are making streets safer, and driving more eco-friendly and enjoyable. The basis of it all: smart software.

What software do self-driving cars need?

Lots! Lutz’s team develops algorithm prototypes in MATLAB and Python, implements in C++, tests in vehicles with ADTF, and simulates with computer clusters.

“The coolest thing about our work? Using sensors and software to enable cars, dumb per se, to understand their surroundings and act intelligently. Right now we’re developing a new pedestrian safety system to reduce the number of accidents involving vehicles and pedestrians. We’re also working on an emergency brake assistant that recognizes potential dangers faster than humans can. Interested? We need software developers to help us achieve great things.”

Case study

Bye-bye gridlock, hello connectivity

In today’s megacities, constant gridlock is a big hassle – and a huge problem. With urbanization at full throttle, we are challenged to create intelligent new solutions to boost mobility and ease the flow of traffic. Enter connected mobility.

At Bosch we are working hard to advance connected mobility in cities worldwide, such as the Monaco 3.0 pilot project that, among other things, connects people to the bus network and parking lots using a convenient smartphone app. By creating end-to-end urban mobility platforms, fostering intermodal modality, and developing innovative new navigation services, we make it easier for people to use existing environmentally friendly transport options, and facilitate more efficient mobility. In turn, people enjoy a better quality of life, have more time to spend with families and friends, and benefit from improved air quality in densely populated areas.
