€35 million deal with Bosch to see development of ‘sensible car’ in Braga

The government has just closed a €35 million partnership deal with Bosch and the University of the Minho for the development of a Sensible (ie autonomous) Car in Braga.

The project is expected to “result in sales of €42 million between 2021 and 2024”, say reports, and follows the announcement last month of Bosch’s plans to expand its operation in Portugal. The company already employs around 5.800 people here.
