Automotive supplier Delphi has joined the autonomous vehicle development project launched last year by the BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye, with Delphi assuming the role of systems integrator.
In July 2016, Intel and Mobileye joined forces with the BMW Group to deliver a fully automated driving system for serial production by 2021. The companies have since developed a scalable architecture that can be adopted by other automakers and mobility providers.
“This is a great opportunity for Delphi to use its technical depth and experience in automated driving and electrical architecture to help the cooperation partners develop and deploy at scale,” said Kevin Clark, president and CEO of Delphi. “Our close working relationship with all three partners serves as a solid foundation for a success.”
A key focus for Delphi will be integrating the solution delivered by the BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye into various OEM vehicle architectures, the company said. Delphi may also provide software and hardware components, such as sensors, as part of customization efforts.
