The recently announced project is going to be conducted by BMW in partnership with Mobileye and Intel. The aim is to develop a reliable, safe and secure autopilot system ready for mass production by 2021.
Israeli Mobileye makes sensors and auxiliary subsystems for automotive autopilot. At the same time, Intel is responsible for delivering the necessary electronics.
The project is estimated to be finalized in 5 years, when the autopilot has to be reliable and intelligent enough to be integrated into production vehicles. Functional prototypes are expected to to appear in the nearest year or to, following by lots of continuous examinations and a series of road tests in order to achieve the highest possible safety level.
