As Driverless Car Efforts Ramp Up, Keep an Eye on Delphi

Delphi has made significant moves lately to transform from a traditional tier-one automotive supplier to a dominant player in self-driving and connected car technology—largely by scooping up an array of startups and inking several strategic partnerships.

In 2015, Delphi bought Ottomatika, a self-driving startup that emerged from Carnegie Mellon University, and last year it purchased Control-Tec, which provides autonomous vehicle analysis software. Earlier this year Delphi acquired Movimento, a provider of over-the-air (OTA) software technology, along with several other startups.
