Automotive parts and electronics maker Delphi Corp.is the latest partner to join BMW, Intel and Mobileye to develop autonomous vehicles.

"System integrators such as Delphi are critical for the go-to-market strategy of the joint solution to reach multiple automotive OEMs quickly", the firms said in a news release. Delphi teamed up with Mobileye in August to develop a low-priced system for self-driving vehicles that's slated to begin sales to carmakers in 2019.

As one of the world's largest automotive parts manufacturers, "Delphi has already provided a prototype compute platform to the BMW Group and is working together with Intel and Mobileye in the areas of perception, sensor fusion and high performance automated driving computing", according to the statement.

"This is a great opportunity for Delphi to use its technical depth and experience in automated driving and electrical architecture to help the cooperation partners develop and deploy at scale", said Kevin Clark, president and CEO of Delphi. "This agreement won't slow down our previously announced automated driving solution called the Centralized Sensing, Localization and Planning Platform (CSLP), which Delphi, Mobileye and Intel are developing - a turnkey AD solution based on the Ottomatika software, our computing platform, and our sensors", said Glen De Vos, Delphi's chief technology officer. Delphi would be in charge of integrating the system into other automakers' vehicles. Their plan has been to make their technology available across vehicle architectures to other automakers, with Delphi playing a role in making it happen. Over the past five months, Delphi has been busy acquiring, investing in, and partnering with a laundry list of other companies to enhance connected-car services, which the company's executives view as a lucrative new revenue stream. Intel confirmed Tuesday that the companies are on track to hit that goal. Richard Rau, the head of the company's sensors, control units and software group, stated that it's in "very deep discussions" to bring other automakers aboard.

Intel, which said its data centers will be key to processing testing data for the autonomous driving platform, in January bought a 15 percent stake in mapping consortium HERE, which is jointly owned by German automakers BMW, Audi AG and Daimler AG.

The platform under development aims to support driving in vehicles equipped with Levels 3, 4, and 5 automation.
