Bosch and Daimler are collaborating on developing a fully automated, driverless system. The two companies will join hands for a development alliance that will focus on making a system that can make fully automated (SAE-Level 4) and driverless (SAE-Level 5) vehicles a common sight on the roads by the beginning of the next decade.
The technical teams of both companies will work jointly on the software and algorithms for an autonomous driving system. While Daimler has considerable expertise when it comes to vehicles and is one of the top manufacturers of premium vehicles in the world, Bosch, as one of the leading automotive suppliers in the world is well known for its technical leadership in the field of systems and hardware. The synergies created as a result of collaboration between both companies is expected to lead to the development of production vehicles by the beginning of the next decade.
The development of a system for smooth flow of fully automated, driverless vehicles in cities will help streamline urban traffic flows, improve road safety, and serve as an important building block for future mobility. Such technology will go a long way towards making car sharing a viable option. People will be able to make more effective use of the time they spend in vehicles and lack of a driving license will no longer be factor that affects mobility.
The main objective of the collaboration between the two companies is to make a driving system ready for production, with the outcome being that vehicles will be able to drive completely autonomously in cities. Instead of the driver coming to the vehicle, it would be a case of the vehicle coming to the driver. Soon, within a given urban area, people would be able to use their smartphones to book a car share or an urban automated taxi that will come to them to transport them to their destination.
