Fiat Chrysler is joining the self-driving alliance led by BMW, Intel and Mobileye, becoming the second automaker in the year-old group to opt to partner in developing an autonomous driving platform.

The alliance plans to put both Level 3 and Level 4/5 automated driving technology into production by 2021. To implement what the partnership calls a “scalable architecture” for self-driving tech, it’s hoped FCA’s North American presence, wide reach of plants, and sales volume will be an asset.

Part of the scalable tech includes the ability to tailor the system to different brands and characteristics, according to the release.

By the end of 2017, the partnership says it will send 40 self-driving test vehicles out on public roads, as well as 100 Level 4 self-driving vehicles destined for the U.S., Europe and Israel that were promised earlier this month.
