Delphi, Ottomatika Partner To Offer Solutions For Automated Driving

Delphi, the company that first introduced automotive radar systems, will integrate its active safety technologies with Ottomatika's automated driving software.

Delphi's automated driving vehicleGILLINGHAM, England – Delphi Automotive PLC has announced it will partner with Ottomatika Inc., a company started by Carnegie Mellon University, which provides advanced automated driving software, to jointly develop technology that will help accelerate automated driving.

Delphi, the company that first introduced automotive radar systems, will integrate its active safety technologies with Ottomatika’s automated driving software. The two companies say the combination 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 say they 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.

Delphi is supporting the collaboration by making an investment in Ottomatika. Together, the two companies will design a short- and long-term roadmap of steadily increasing vehicle automation in the coming years.

“Ottomatika leverages ground-breaking expertise and long-term experience in vehicle automation,” said Raj Rajkumar, co-founder and CEO, Ottomatika Inc. “Delphi and Ottomatika working together have the potential to solve the automated driving challenge, which makes roads safer for everyone.”
