BMW and Daimler to jointly develop new technologies for automated driving
The BMW Group and Daimler AG are to join forces on automated driving.
Initially, the focus will be on advancing the development of next-generation technologies for driver assistance systems, automated driving on highways and parking features (up to SAE Level 4).
The two companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly develop this technology, which is key for future mobility.
In addition, the two partners plan to discuss the possibility of extending their collaboration to cover higher levels of automation, both on highways and in urban areas.
These considerations underline the sustainable, long-term nature of the cooperation, which includes the aim to create a scalable platform for automated driving.
BMW and Daimler will also explore additional partnerships with other technology companies and automotive manufacturers that could contribute to the success of the platform.
