BMW test autonomous vehicles in 2017

BMW will have a fleet of 40 self-driving test vehicles on the roads by the second half of 2017, writes Brian Byrne.

The pilot is in conjunction with computer chip giant Intel and the Israel-based MobilEye company which specialises in developing systems to analyse and coordinate information from automotive sensors.

BMW announced the partnership last July, and more details of the next stage will be revealed on Monday at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

A ‘scaleable’ architecture for the systems has been developed by the partnership, which will be made available to other carmakers.

BMW is hoping to have its first production autonomous vehicle on the road in 2021.
