The CC Crazy for Success event in Plymouth, MI will focus on the competitiveness for PP-ECU Generation 6 in North America

  • Connected & highly automated driving established as trend, 360° surround sensing by combination of different sensors, ultrasonic near range sensors are prerequisite for maneuvering in tight spaces at low speeds.
  • Park Pilot Electronic Control Unit (PP ECU) is a control unit in the UltraSonic Park Pilot Driver Assistance System. It receives signal from the sensors (front, rear, side) and provides support to the driver in various driving situations (regular or parallel parking, etc).
  • It offers high functional performance combined with a small and lightweight packaging size at competitive production costs. The product is used for sensing the surroundings of the vehicle.
  • The day's events will focus on the exchange of ideas and information on the new product and for the potential suppliers to present their abilities to be a partner in this program with Bosch.
  • Supplier will get first-hand expectations from Bosch functions, such as quality, manufacturing, logistics, engineering, and purchasing concerning future deliveries of ECU components.
