BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye Team Up to Bring Fully Autonomous Driving to Streets by 2021

Posted on 01. Jul, 2016 by in BMW Canada

Munich – Jul 1, 2016. BMW Group, Intel, and Mobileye
are fasten army to make self-driving vehicles and destiny mobility
concepts turn a reality. The 3 leaders from a automotive,
record and mechanism prophesy and appurtenance training industries are
collaborating to move solutions for rarely and wholly automated
pushing into array prolongation by 2021.


The destiny of programmed pushing promises to change lives and
societies for a better. But a trail to get to a wholly autonomous
universe is formidable and will need end-to-end solutions that integrate
comprehension opposite a network, from doorway thatch to a information center.
Transportation providers of a destiny contingency strap fast evolving
technologies, combine with totally new partners, and ready for
disruptive opportunities.


Together with Intel and Mobileye, a BMW Group will rise the
compulsory solutions and innovative systems for rarely and fully
programmed pushing to move these technologies into array production
by 2021. The BMW iNEXT indication will be a substructure for BMW Group’s
unconstrained pushing plan and set a basement for fleets of fully
unconstrained vehicles, not usually on highways though also in urban
environments for a purpose of programmed ridesharing solutions.


BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye are assured that programmed driving
technologies will make transport safer and easier. The idea of the
partnership is to rise future-proofed solutions that capacitate the
drivers to not usually take their hands off a steering wheel, though reach
a so called “eyes off” (level 3) and eventually a “mind off”
(level 4) turn transforming a driver’s in-car time into convenience or
work time. This turn of liberty would capacitate a vehicle, on a
technical level, to grasp a final theatre of roving “driver off”
(level 5) but a tellurian motorist inside. This establishes the
event for self-driving fleets by 2021 and lays a foundation
for wholly new business models in a connected, mobile world.


On Jul 1, 2016, a 3 partners were benefaction during a BMW Group
Headquarters in Munich to denote their joining to essay for an
attention customary and conclude an open height for unconstrained driving.
The common height will residence turn 3 to turn 5 programmed driving
and will be done accessible to mixed automobile vendors and other
industries who could advantage from unconstrained machines and low appurtenance learning.


The companies have concluded to a set of deliverables and milestones to
broach wholly unconstrained cars formed on a common reference
architecture. Near term, a companies will denote an autonomous
exam expostulate with a rarely programmed pushing (HAD) prototype. In 2017
a height will extend to fleets with extended unconstrained exam drives.


“Today outlines an critical miracle for a automotive attention as we
enter a universe of new mobility. Together with BMW Group and Intel,
Mobileye is laying a grounds for a record of future
mobility that enables wholly unconstrained pushing to turn a reality
within a subsequent few years,” said Mobileye Co-Founder, Chairman
and CTO Professor Amnon Shashua

“Mobileye is unapproachable to minister a imagination in sensing,
localization, and motorist process to capacitate wholly unconstrained pushing in
this cooperation. The estimate of sensing, like a capabilities to
know a pushing stage by a singular camera already, will be
deployed on Mobileye’s latest system-on-chip, a EyeQ®5, and the
collaborative growth of alloy algorithms will be deployed on
Intel computing platforms. In addition, Mobileye Road Experience
Management (REM) record will yield real-time precise
localization and indication a pushing stage to radically support fully
unconstrained driving.”


Intel brings a extensive portfolio of record to energy and
bond billions of intelligent and connected devices, including cars. To
hoop a formidable workloads compulsory for unconstrained cars in urban
environments Intel provides a discriminate energy that beam from Intel®
Atom™ to Intel® Xeon™ processors delivering adult to a sum of 100
teraflops of energy fit opening but carrying to rewrite code.

“Highly unconstrained cars and all they bond to will require
absolute and arguable electronic smarts to make them intelligent adequate to
navigate trade and equivocate accidents,” pronounced Intel CEO Brian
. “This partnership between BMW Group, Intel and
Mobileye will assistance us to fast broach on a prophesy to reinvent the
pushing experience. We move a extended set of in-vehicle and cloud
computing, connectivity, reserve and security, and machine-learning
resources to this partnership enabling a truly finish to finish solution.”


With a Strategy Number ONE NEXT, a BMW Group has developed
a horizon to sojourn a pushing force behind reward individual
mobility. This proceed will turn pushing existence with a BMW iNEXT
indication in 2021, heralding a new epoch of mobility.

“At a BMW Group we always essay for technological leadership. This
partnership underscores a Strategy Number ONE NEXT to figure the
particular mobility of a future,” settled Harald Krüger,
Chairman of a Board of Management of BMW AG
. “Following
a investment in high clarification live map record during HERE, the
total imagination of Intel, Mobileye and a BMW Group will deliver
a subsequent core building retard to move wholly programmed driving
record to a street. We have already showcased such
groundbreaking solutions in a VISION NEXT 100 automobile concepts. With
this technological jump forward, we are charity a business a whole
new turn of perfect pushing pleasure while pioneering new concepts for
reward mobility.”

About BMW Group

With a 3 brands BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce, a BMW Group is the
world’s heading reward manufacturer of automobiles and motorcycles
and also provides reward financial and mobility services. As a global
company, a BMW Group operates 31 prolongation and open facilities
in 14 countries and has a tellurian sales network in some-more than 140 countries.

In 2015, a BMW Group sole approximately 2.247 million cars and
scarcely 137,000 motorcycles worldwide. The distinction before taxation for the
