Delphi, Mobileye partner to bring self-driving system to market by 2019

The companies' module will enable automakers to accelerate the pace of self-driving technology to market

The automated driving technology will be based on Delphi's multi-domain controller and will include Mobileye's EyeQ 4/5 System on a Chip (SoC) control module that includes vehicle sensor signal processing and its "Road Experience Management" (REM) system, which will be used for real-time mapping and vehicle localization.

Delphi will incorporate automated-driving software algorithms from its Ottomatika acquisition, a Carnegie Mellon University spinoff that produces software for powering Delphi's advanced network of sensor technology for autonomous vehicles.

The self-driving system will also include Delphi's multi-domain controller (MDC) with the full camera, radar and LiDAR suite. LiDAR, which stands for light detection and ranging (LiDAR), paints a three-dimensional image for a car's computer to use for navigation and object avoidance.

Both companies also will develop the "next generation" human-like "driving policy," or artificial intelligence capable of determining how to react and adapt to a myriad of scenarios.

"This module combines Ottomatika's driving behavior modeling with Mobileye's deep reinforcement learning in order to yield driving capabilities necessary for negotiating with other human drivers and pedestrians in complex urban scenes," the companies stated.

Delphi's and Mobileye's "Central Sensing Localization and Planning" platform will be based on Mobileye's EyeQ 4/5 System on a Chip (SoC) control module, which contains vehicle sensor signal processing and its "Road Experience Management" (REM) system, which will be used for real time mapping and vehicle localization.

Delphi and Mobileye are far from alone in developing self-driving systems.

Volvo Cars just signed a deal with Uber, the world's leading ride-sharing company, to develop a generation of autonomous driving cars. Uber also announced its first fleet of semi-autonomous Volvo X90 SUVs will hit the streets of Pittsburgh this year.

General Motors partnered with Lyft to develop autonomous Chevy Bolts, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is providing Alphabet's Google with vehicles for its self-driving car division.

Mobileye already announced separate self-driving technology partnerships with both BMW and Intel to produce self-driving cars by 2021.
