A post shared by BMW (@bmwusa) on


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, or FCA Group for short, is joining up with BMW Group and tech companies Intel and Mobileye in an effort to produce forty fully autonomous vehicle prototypes by the year 2021. The ultimate goal is to develop a platform that all car companies can use while maintaining their own brand identities, thereby driving progress forward (pun intended!) in the autonomous vehicle technology field.

Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer of Mobileye, Professor Amnon Ahashua, said: "we welcome FCA's contributions and use of the platform, which has made substantial progress over the last year and is rapidly entering the testing and execution phase," according to a BMW USA News release.

Current BMW Semiautonomous Driving Software

Current BMW buyers are not estranged from technology that helps them drive. In fact, BMW Personal Copilot Driver Assistance from BMW ConnectedDrive already does just that. This cool technology informs BMW drivers of cars in their blind spots, alerts them when they drift out of their lane and helps them stay in said lane. Steering and lane control assistance, a part of BMW Personal Copilot can also be activated to help drivers in monotonous driving situations such as early morning rush hour or late night traffic jams. Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go is also included in current, appropriately equipped BMWs.
