The sensors on Delphi's latest self-driving test vehicles are closely integrated into the vehicle's body. German automaker BMW Group and U.S. tech giant Intel strengthened their self-driving car alliance with the addition of auto supplier Delphi, putting the companies a step closer to their goal of delivering an autonomous car by 2021. BMW and Intel said Tuesday that they had struck a deal to collaborate with Delphi on development and integration of self-driving car technology, with a particular emphasis "in the areas of perception, sensor fusion and high performance automated driving computing." Richard Rau, BMW's vice president of sensors, control units and software, also told reporters that the company is in "very deep discussions" to add other automakers to the alliance, possibly "within a few weeks." The alliance reflects a further escalation in the arms race among automakers, tech companies and suppliers to assemble partnerships to meet the intense technological, logistical and financial demands of autonomous vehicle development.
