BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye have signed a memorandum of understanding with the intention for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) to join them in developing a world leading, state-of-the-art platform for global deployment of autonomous vehicles.

By way of background, BMW Group, Intel, and Mobileye joined forces in July 2016, to make automated self-driving cars a reality with collaborative plans to bring highly and fully autonomous vehicles into production by 2021.

The goal of the new partnership with FCA is to leverage their individual strengths, capabilities and resources to enhance the platform’s technology, increase development efficiency and reduce the time to market, while maintaining their unique brand identities.

“The future of transportation relies on auto and tech industry leaders working together to develop a scalable architecture that automakers around the globe can adopt and customize,” said Brian Krzanich, Intel CEO. “We’re thrilled to welcome FCA’s contribution, bringing us a step closer to delivering the world’s safest autonomous vehicles.”

BMW Group, Intel, Mobileye and FCA, plans to invite additional automakers and technology suppliers to join them in adopting this autonomous driving platform in an effort to create an industry-wide solution.

Professor Amnon Shashua, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer of Mobileye, an Intel Company noted, “The combination of vision-intense perception and mapping, differentiated sensor fusion, and driving policy solutions offers the highest levels of safety and versatility, in a cost-efficient package that will scale across all geographies and road settings.”

The group effort is on-track to deploy 40 autonomous test vehicles on the road by 2017 year-end.
