With many of the top car brands investing heavily in automated driving technolgies, one of the leading companies in road safety research, Delphi Automotive, leads the way in driving assistance partnerships.
Delphi, the company that first introduced automotive radar systems, will integrate its active safety technologies with Ottomatika’s automated driving software. The combination of the two creates a technology platform that enables a vehicle to make human-like decisions when driving in the city or on the highway. The platform is flexible and can be expanded and upgraded as the software is updated. It will also support vehicle-to-environment (V2X) communications.
“Dealing with highly complex real-world decisions is a limitation for much of the current technology in the market,” said Jeff Owens, Delphi’s chief technology officer. “This partnership with Ottomatika will represent a significant step forward in making automated driving a reality. Your car just got a lot smarter.”
Using their individual strengths, Delphi and Ottomatika have developed a vehicle platform that can instantaneously make complex decisions, like stopping and proceeding at a four-way stop, timing a highway merge or calculating the safest maneuver around a bicyclist on a city street.
