BMW has partnered with Intel and Mobile sensing company, Mobileye to develop a technology that can help bring self-driving cars into series production by 2021.

The path to get to a fully autonomous world is complex and will require end-to-end solutions that integrate intelligence across the network, from door locks to the data center, said Intel. The three companies are joining forces to do this and to strive for an industry standard and define an open platform for autonomous driving. The common platform will address level 3 to level 5 automated driving and will be made available to multiple car vendors and other industries who could benefit from autonomous machines and deep machine learning.

Mobileye which will be contributing its expertise in sensing, localization and driver policy to enable fully autonomous driving in this cooperation, is alread working with General Motors and Volkswagen.

On the other hand, BMW's iNEXT model is being planned to be the foundation for its autonomous driving strategy and set the basis for fleets of fully autonomous vehicles, not only on highways but also in urban environments for the purpose of automated ridesharing solutions. 

Professor Amnon Shashua, Co-Founder, Chairman and CTO, Mobileye
Together with BMW Group and Intel, Mobileye is laying the groundwork for the technology of future mobility that enables fully autonomous driving to become a reality within the next few years.

Brian Krzanich, CEO, Intel
We bring a broad set of in-vehicle and cloud computing, connectivity, safety and security, and machine-learning assets to this collaboration enabling a truly end-to-end solution.
