LAS VEGAS — As the world's largest supplier shifts more of its products to software-based technologies, it is also cognizant that, in the process, it must build consumer trust in software.
As part of CES last week, German megasupplier Robert Bosch revealed the results of its "Tech Compass" survey, which found that 4 out of 5 respondents indicated it is important that they trust the software in the products they use moving forward.
That finding is critical to Bosch's thinking as its component systems and the vehicles they supply become more connected and automated, Bosch Group Chief Digital Officer Tanja Rückert said during a virtual CES press conference.
Bosch has said all products it builds by 2025 will either contain artificial intelligence or have been built with its help. The company sees AI and connected products working in tandem to boost revenue it generates from services in the future.
"In the future, cars are mainly software, Internet nodes — IoT devices on wheels," Rückert said, referring to the Internet of Things. The presentation was made virtually amid many CES participants' efforts to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
