York location to become 'Center of Excellence' for embedded software

For several years now, the topic of “Embedded Software” has been gaining increased importance in our industry.  Due to its history and background in developing software and operating systems, the ETAS office in York, United Kingdom is perfectly poised to become a leader in this area and establish itself as the center of excellence for embedded software systems within the Bosch group of companies. As part of accomplishing this role, York will build up the capability to manage and deliver services for embedded software globally.

To kick off these activities, a workshop was held in York May 9 – 10. The goal of the “Embedded Software” workshop was to define York's function in fulfilling the ETAS mission of driving embedded excellence. ETAS CEO Friedhelm Pickhard participated in the workshop and emphasized the importance of York’s new role: “The team in York have a proven track record in delivering highly reliable, mass produced embedded software – the operating system technologies from the York team are already deployed in more than 650 million ECU globally. Bringing this know-how to a wider audience will allow ETAS to add value into our customers activities.”
