Bosch, Daimler Announce Partnership
April 4 , 2017—Bosch and Daimler have joined to advance the development of fully automated and driverless technology.
The 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 next decade. The objective of the project is to develop software and algorithms for an autonomous driving system.
By introducing fully automated and driverless driving to the urban environment, Bosch and Daimler aim to improve the workflow of traffic in cities, enhance safety on the road and provide an important building block for the way traffic will work in the future. The prime objective of the project is to achieve the production-ready development of a driving system which will allow cars to drive fully autonomously in the city.
