Focusing on autonomous driving, it gave Romanian students that opportunity to study and learn about this exciting new technology under the expert guidance of Bosch engineers and staff.

Lasting 13 courses and 13 lab sessions, the students were one of the first to work with the state-of-the-art technology in this field and were educated on how these future-shaping techniques are being used to shape our futures, and understand the basics of how they work, covering technologies and subjects such as, sensor fusion, connectivity, or steering systems.
