BMW wants to make sure its autonomous cars can hit high speeds

Cadillac and Audi might already tour their semiautonomous driving systems, but BMW is taking some more time before rolling out a high-speed self-driving system. BMW is spending the next couple of years working with suppliers and testing prototypes to ensure the automaker can introduce a system that can operate at high speeds in most highway driving situations, with the added benefit of being a backup operator in fully automated vehicles.

 

 

BMW's system won't be available until 2021, which puts it several years behind competitors. BMW chose to wait until it could introduce a system capable of driving at speeds up to 80 mph and making driving decisions such as lane changes on its own. To get there, the automaker is relying on partners and the ability to quickly build the system up to higher levels of autonomy. BMW plans to roll out its Level 3 system with the iNEXT electric crossover in 2021. In the meantime, it plans to deploy a fleet of 100 autonomous 7-series test vehicles. Forty of the vehicles will be operating worldwide by year end, and all 100 are to be on the road by 2019.

 

BMW is building its system with chipmaker Intel and camera sensor supplier Mobileye, which this year became an Intel subsidiary. The group is also working with Delphi, Continental, Magna and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to integrate the system into other automakers' vehicles.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
