Self-driving ‘arms race’ complicates supplier alliances | Reuters


That shift is behind deals like one announced last week between Robert Bosch and Daimler AG’s (DAIGn.DE) Mercedes. Bosch and Mercedes said they will collaborate on development of self-driving vehicles, with Bosch in a broad role as a systems integrator — sort of a copilot with the automaker in speeding up deployment of self-driving vehicles. Bosch also expects to sell the jointly developed systems to other companies.

Separately, Silicon Valley chipmaker Intel Corp (INTC.O) acquired automotive vision technology leader Mobileye NV (MBLY.N), and has a deal to help German luxury car maker BMW AG (BMWG.DE) develop autonomous vehicles around Intel and Mobileye systems.
