At Bosch, new ideas are a thriving tradition. Around the world, thousands of Bosch employees develop new products and systematically improve and innovate those already developed every day.
That Bosch is a technology leader in so many fields is a result of the persistent and continuous research conducted in the company's Development Centers. This is where, for example revolutionary braking and security systems like ABS and ESP® and new methods for cutting pollutant emissions were born and are being continuously improved by new and patented developments.
High-performing, safe and eco-friendly products that are also easy to operate are usually based on an extended development and patent career.
Since Bosch operates throughout the world, the company's patents are also registered in many countries. The patent applications filed in their patent offices are testimony to the creativity of the employees of the Bosch Group and its role as a global motor of innovation. In terms of patent application numbers, Bosch occupies a leading position in significant markets.
Not every idea leads to a patent application. All of the inventions that have not made it that far are on public display in Stuttgart-Feuerbach (Bregenzer Strasse).
Patents are a vital instrument for protecting the results of years of expensive research against imitators. They permit Bosch not just to secure its own technology leadership, but also to let others participate in it as licensees.
