BMW, Intel and Mobileye are developing a self-driving vehicle platform for application by 2021, Magna joins the initiative as a Tier 1 technology integrator and will help automakers industrialise and customise the domain controller designed by the three core partners.

“Many of the autonomy challenges the industry is facing can’t be handled in isolation,” says Magna’s Chief Technology Officer Swamy Kotagiri. “I am confident that the many strengths brought forward by each partner will contribute to the delivery of a self-driving platform the market can leverage. We are extremely excited to be one of the early integrators bringing our unique capabilities to the platform.”

Through this collaboration, BMW, Intel and Mobileye plan to provide an autonomous vehicle platform that can be flexible and adoptable for integration by multiple automakers.

“We are very pleased to welcome Magna as the next major industry player to support our non-exclusive platform,” says Klaus Fröhlich, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG for Development. “This underlines the success story we have been writing over the past year with our unique cooperation and it gives us additional boost in creating a leading ecosystem for the industry of autonomous driving. Magna has a long-term experience in integrating complex systems seamlessly onto individual vehicle platforms, while securing differentiation for individual OEM customers.”
