BMW Group and Daimler AG partner to advance Automated Vehicle Driving Technologies

BMW Group and Daimler AG last week announced their collaboration for advancing automated driving technologies. These technologies include driver assistance systems, automated driving on highways and automated parking.

According to the announcement, the collaboration will engage more than 1200 specialist. The teams will be based at multiple locations. The BMW Group Autonomous Driving Campus in Unterschleissheim, near Munich, the Mercedes-Benz Technology Centre (MTC) in Sindelfingen and the Daimler Testing and Technology Centre in Immendingen are some of the locations.

The press release said, "A key aim of the cooperation is the swift market launch of the technology, which is expected to feature in passenger car systems for private customers from 2024. The two companies will each implement the technologies in their respective series products independently. "

The collaboration will focus on developing a scalable architecture along with sensors. Further joint data center for data storage, administration and processing, and the development of functions and software will be also part of the cooperation.

Higher levels of automation in urban areas and city centers will be also planned. The technologies developed will be also made available to others under the OEM license. The cooperation is also open to other OEMs and technology partners, says the announcement.

Last week, Intel along with other eleven automotive leaders published a white paper titled "Safety First for Automated Driving" (SaFAD). The paper lists 12 guiding principles for "Safety First for Automated Driving". Intel’s model for safer Automated Vehicles (AV) decision-making known as Responsibility-Sensitive Safety (RSS) serves as a foundation of this newly published paper.

Aptiv, Audi, Baidu, BMW, Continental, Daimler, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Here Technologies, Infineon and Volkswagen are the other 11 players contributed to the paper.
