BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye are to work with Delphi as a development partner and system integrator for their autonomous driving platform.
The four partners intend to jointly deploy a cooperation model to deliver and scale the developed solutions to the broader OEM automotive industry and potentially other sectors.
Delphi has already provided a prototype compute platform to the BMW Group and is working together with Intel and Mobileye in the areas of perception, sensor fusion, and high performance automated driving computing.
In July last year, BMW Group, Intel, and Mobileye said they would join forces to make self-driving vehicles become a reality and are collaborating to bring solutions for highly and fully automated driving into series production by 2021.
The Cooperation Partners have since developed a scalable architecture which can be adopted by other automotive developers and carmakers to pursue designs and create differentiated brands.
A key role for Delphi will be the integration of the solution delivered by BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye into OEM vehicle architectures. Additionally, Delphi may also provide required hardware components such as sensors as well as specific customisation and applications for differentiation.
The partnership between Delphi and the Cooperation Partners is non-exclusive. The Cooperation Partners are in the process of onboarding additional integration and development partners to support future OEM customer needs.
“From the very beginning we designed our cooperation on a non-exclusive platform for this technology of the future,” said BMW Development board member, Klaus Fröhlich.
“With the onboarding of Delphi we significantly strengthen our development of the automated driving and do a future step in spreading this technology across the industry.”
