Robert Bosch LLC was awarded a 2014 Automotive News PACE™ (Premier Automotive Suppliers’ Contribution to Excellence) Award on Monday. The company earned recognition for its laser-drilling technology for spray enhancements in gasoline direct injection in the Product category.
“Bosch is honored to be recognized as a PACE Award winner and truly values this significant accomplishment,” said Mike Mansuetti, president, Robert Bosch LLC. “As an automotive innovation leader, Bosch understands the critical importance of achieving new vehicle standards and meeting consumer needs. We strive to create products that enable automakers to easily adapt to changes in the dynamic automotive landscape, and we have a great team of associates who value their customer relationships.”
HDEV5 Gasoline Direct-Injection Fuel Injectors With Laser-Drilled Spray Holes
To assist the automotive industry in complying with upcoming emission standards, Bosch developed laser-drilled spray holes as a performance enhancement to its HDEV5 gasoline direct-injection fuel injectors. Bosch’s latest injector offers enhanced spray quality and unprecedented levels of spray pattern flexibility. It provides automakers with the precision and customization needed for engines to meet strict emissions requirements by improving fuel atomization and reducing spray penetration. Bosch’s laser-drilling process, called ultra-short-pulse laser drilling, enables a new level of spray shape flexibility, allowing automakers to efficiently manufacture different hole diameters and shapes in one nozzle. This innovative product was first launched on the 2012 Audi A3 and in total has been launched with nine customers on 14 projects globally.
In addition to this winning entry, one of Bosch’s other technologies – NextGen Open-Source Infotainment System – was named a finalist in the Information Technology category, as previously announced last fall.
NextGen – An Open-Source Infotainment System
Consumers have come to expect infotainment systems to deliver a smartphone-like experience and easy integration of their favorite apps in order to interact with the technology in a way that best suits them. Bosch developed the NextGen Open-Source Infotainment System software to support automakers in delivering in-vehicle infotainment systems that meet consumer demands with high functionality and easy integration of their mobile devices in a practical way.
In addition, automakers are looking to provide new, cost-effective infotainment systems as quickly as possible to improve the functionality of consumer electronics in the vehicle. Using a Linux-based operating system, Bosch’s NextGen Open-Source infotainment system is a high-performance, cost-effective solution with reduced development time. The system is featured on the 2013 Cadillac SRX, XTS and ATS.
“Bosch is committed to developing products that are ‘Invented for life’ and aims to shape technologies to meet consumer and automaker needs,” added Mansuetti. “We work to find innovative solutions to industry issues and create forward-looking technology to better the lives of consumers everywhere.”
Since the PACE Awards’ inception in 1995, Bosch has received seven awards. The first honor, presented for the use of post-consumer recycled material, was given in 1997.
Automotive News PACE Awards

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
