FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., June 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — After announcing the debut of its new Connected Mobility Solutions global division at the beginning of 2018, Bosch continues to build its capabilities in the area of mobility services. Today, the global provider of technology and services announced a strategic investment in Mojio, a technology platform and SaaS provider for connected cars, as well as an innovation agreement to co-develop a suite of advanced connected car services.

As part of the innovation agreement, Bosch and Mojio will co-develop solutions in focused areas, beginning with vehicle communication and diagnostics as well as crash detection and notification.
“The extensive data we’ve derived from our portfolio of diagnostic solutions has given us invaluable insights that can be the basis for solutions that bring great value to consumers and OEMs,” said Mike Mansuetti, president of Bosch in North America.
Bosch’s strategic investment was part of the Mojio’s Series B funding round. Terms of Bosch’s strategic investment in Mojio will not be disclosed.
