Strong Partnerships Serve as Enablers for Autonomous Driving Platform

The FINANCIAL -- The BMW Group has once again selected expert software development partners, further consolidating its partner network in the process.

The aim of the collaboration with KPIT and TTTech is to press ahead with the scalable Autonomous Driving Platform and to work together on the development of Level 3 and Level 4/5 functions (Highway Pilot and Urban Pilot). This move bolsters the BMW Group’s development resources for automated driving and represents another step forward in its quest to expand the platform’s ecosystem and establish the technology in the automotive industry.

KPIT and TTTech will be well positioned to help roll out the software stack within the Autonomous Driving Platform to third parties. This will make it easier to integrate other OEMs and begin offering scalable software solutions across the industry.

Since July 2016, the BMW Group has been developing a network of one of the worlds leading technology partners to help expand the platform’s footprint. These include Intel, Mobileye, Continental, Magna, FCA, Aptiv and Baidu.
