Posted by at 10:16 am on April 4, 2017

Bosch and Daimler are teaming up to advance the development of fully automated and driverless driving. The two companies have entered into a development agreement to bring fully automated (SAE Level 4) and driverless (SAE Level 5) driving to urban roads by the beginning of the next decade.

The goal is to develop software and  for an autonomous driving system. The project combines the total vehicle expertise of the world’s leading premium manufacturer with the system and hardware expertise of the world’s biggest supplier. The ensuing synergies should ensure the earliest possible series introduction of the secure technology.

The envisioned service will allow customers to order self-driving taxis on their mobile phones within a predetermined area.

Daimler has already been working on entering the autonomous ride-hailing space. In January, the automaker said it would supply self-driving Mercedes-Benz cars to Uber, though Daimler said it would develop the technology on its own.

Bosch has also been teaming up with companies in the pursuit of autonomous vehicles. In March, the supplier said it was working with chipmaker Nvidia to develop a supercomputer to power a self-driving system.

Though Bosch and Daimler have set the deadline for the software at the start of the next decade, the companies said they plan to have the technology ready “as early as possible.”
