THE FUTURE IS AUTOMATED
BMW, Intel, and Mobileye are joining forces to develop self-driving vehicles and future mobility concepts. the three leaders from the automotive, technology and computer-vision/machine-learning industries are collaborating with the intention of bringing highly and fully automated driving into series production by 2021.
The three companies are convinced that automated driving technologies will make travel safer and easier, and the goal of the collaboration is to develop future-proofed solutions that enable the drivers to not only take their hands off the steering wheel, but reach the so-called ‘eyes off’ (level three) and ultimately the ‘mind off’ (level four) level, transforming the driver’s incar time into leisure or work.
This level of autonomy allows the vehicle, on a technical level, to achieve the final stage of travelling ‘driver off’ (level five) without a human driver inside.
