BMW and Daimler to co-develop driverless technologies

Car manufacturers BMW and Daimler AG have partnered up to develop self-driving technologies up to level 4, which are technologies that allow for self-driving without human intervention under certain conditions.

The two companies will develop technologies for driver assistance systems, highly automated driving on highways, and automated parking, with the aim of creating a “scalable platform for automated driving” that can be mass-launched from 2024.

Once created, BMW and Daimler AG have plans to make the scalable platform available to other automotive manufacturers under license.
