Autonomous driving seems to be the Holy Grail of the automotive industry today, strange as it may sound. Working around the clock to get the steering wheel out of cars does not seem to be of much interest to automakers, and that's probably why some companies are turning into "tech companies" to make sure they get on with it cope with the coming things.  However, we are far from achieving this ideal. BMW is partnering on the left and right, looking for the right joint venture that will consolidate its place in history as autonomous driving becomes reality. From working with Mobileye to Intel and Delphi nobody is from the list. Even Audi and Mercedes, eternal German rivals, have teamed up with BMW to develop self-driving cars.
In the following, Bayern show us what we need to know about this goal in 2018 Already known, there are five different levels of autonomous driving generally accepted Level 1 includes adaptive cruise control functions with stop and Go functions Level 2 allows you to take your hands off the wheel, but you still need to be able to drive on your own: BMW wants to introduce Level 3 by 2021, a system with which you can completely clear your eyes from the road turn away.
Level 4 allows you to completely hand over the driving responsibilities to the car and even to sleep or read while on the move. In this scenario, it would still be necessary to be physically fit to take control. The Level 5 systems will make the driver a passenger. BMW hopes that this will be possible between 2025 and 2030 and claims that this system does not require a driver's license at all. Things are definitely interesting at the moment, but there is much more to learn about how these systems will be made, and the underlying material is very good at explaining the inner workings.
