Tier one auto industry dealer Bosch is investing greatly in where the souk is headed, with a spanking new announcement of $1.1 billion facilities that will manufacture semiconductors that are used by self-driving cars, smart homes and smart city infrastructure system.

 The latest Dresden-based chip fab is ready to start creating silicon commercially in 2021, and edifice should enclose in 2019.

The significantly long-drawn-out chip manufacturing capability that this will meet the expense of Bosch is seen by the corporation as a key element in serving them stay in their key supply spot as automakers persist in shifting focus to mobility platforms and connected services. Bosch is no beginner when it comes to chip making, on the other hand; according to Bloomberg, the company has supplied chips for cars, plus latest devices like smartphones, for over 40 years.

The innovative plant will also deliver chips that give more conventional functionality to cars, including those that activate airbag operation and control instrument panel readings, at the same time as in-car cellular connectivity.

Intel is also stabbing to position itself as a key chip provider in the sphere of autonomous vehicles, as is Qualcomm (aided by it’s acquired of NXP, while that’s presently being inspected by the EU earlier to finalization). Bosch has been working in this pasture for a long time, but the self-directed market is special, so it’ll be very exciting to see whether those coming from the computing side or those on the automotive end of the range end up claiming a more leading position in the marketplace.
