Innoviz’s proprietary Lidar sensing solutions, one of the key building blocks needed for self-driving vehicles, will be integrated into Delphi’s systems to provide makers of autonomous cars and trucks with a comprehensive portfolio of autonomous driving technologies.  (more…)

Delphi, Trasdev Plan to Launch Driverless “Mobility On-Demand Service”

Pilot programs to begin late this year in Paris and Normandy.

by on Jun.07, 2017

Delphi's a leader in autonomous vehicle technology, but now looks to partner with Transdev to be THE leader.

They may not be household names like Google, General Motors or Tesla, but automotive supplier Delphi and mobility technology firm Transdev are joining forces in a project that could position them at the head of the line in efforts to bring autonomous driving systems to the real world.

The two companies announced Wednesday that they are teaming up to start testing a driverless “mobility-on-demand” service in two parts of France beginning late this year. If the pilot programs in Paris and Normandy prove successful, the partners plan to launch commercial service by 2019.

News You Can Trust!

“We believe that autonomy will bring a lot of social benefits,” said Yann Leriche, chief performance officer of Transdev, during a conference call with reporters. “Our mission is to leverage those benefits to provide attractive shared transportation options to our clients. The asset can be shared, for example on-demand cars, or the ride can be shared, for example, buses.” (more…)

Delphi Partners With BMW, Intel and Mobileye on Autonomous Tech

Supplier may also provide additional support.

by on May.16, 2017

Delphi is teaming with BMW, Mobileye and Intel to develop an autonomous driving system for 2021.

Unlike the old axiom, apparently three isn’t a crowd as Delphi Automotive announced it will join forces with Intel Corp. and Mobileye to help created the platform for BMW’s autonomous vehicle systems in the future.

The deal, which isn’t exclusive, puts Delphi into the role of integrator. It will merge all of BMW, Intel and Mobileye’s automated driving solutions into automaker vehicle architectures. Delphi may also provide software and hardware such as sensors and provide help in other areas as needed.

BMW, Intel and Mobileye announced last year that they would jointly develop a fully automated driving system for production by 2021. The three companies have developed an architecture that could be used by other automakers and mobility companies. (more…)

Delphi Spinning Off “Old Business” for EV, Autonomous Future

Supplier spinning off internal combustion portion of business.

by on May.04, 2017

Delphi is demonstrated the capability of its automated driving system by driving an Audi Q5 from San Francisco to New York City a while back.

Delphi Automotive, one of the automotive industry’s largest and most diversified parts suppliers, said it is preparing to spin off operations tied to internal combustion engines and focus on technology for electrically powered and self-driving vehicles.

“There’s a whole element of the componentry of the car that Wall Street values at a lower level,” Delphi Chief Executive Officer Kevin Clark told Reuters.

News Now!

The electronic Delphi – the part that remains – will compete in a potential market the supplier believes exceeds more than $100 billion annually. That twice as big as the current internal combustion segment, explaining the appeal of the “electronic” market. Delphi said its electronic systems units had about $12 billion in revenue last year.

Delphi Looking to Get Intel Inside its Autonomous Tech

Tech giant supplying computer chips for self-driving system.

by on Nov.30, 2016

Delphi plans to show off its new CSLP system featuring new Intel computer chips at the upcoming CES in January in Las Vegas.

Pretty soon your car may be “intel inside” as Delphi and Mobileye N.V. are partnering with Intel to use the company’s computer chips for its in-development autonomous vehicle system.

The new system, which is called Centralized Sensing Location and Planning, is expected to be available by 2019, according to Delphi officials. Intel is slated to deliver the chips late next year. Able to handle processing more than 12 trillion operations a second, they are the final piece to autonomous puzzle.

“We think they will be a great supplier for us,” Glen DeVos, vice president of Delphi’s services business unit told Automotive News. “For us, it’s a big step forward. It will allow us to accelerate development.” (more…)

Delphi Launching Autonomous Fleet Test in Singapore

Project will supplement nation-state’s transit system.

by on Aug.01, 2016

The first of the Delphi autonomous prototypes will be a modified Audi SQ5.

Automotive mega-supplier Delphi is partnering up with the nation-state of Singapore to launch an ambitious autonomous vehicle test program meant to supplement the existing mass transit system.

The goal of the on-demand system is to make six battery-electric, self-driving cars available for rides on demand along three fixed routes to ferry people between their homes, offices and conventional mass transit stations. Backup “safety drivers” will remain behind the wheel initially, but by 2019 Delphi hopes to eliminate drivers – as well as back-up vehicles controls.

Breaking News!

The project “allows us to demonstrate we have the complete ecosystem of knowledge and capability in the vehicle,” explained Glen DeVos, vice president of the service business unit at Delphi, the one-time General Motors partsmaking unit now based in the U.K.

Delphi Readies for Next Step in Autonomous Vehicle Development

Supplier bringing latest advancements to CES 2016

by on Dec.14, 2015

Delphi is revealing updates to its autonomous vehicle at CES that allow drivers to control cabin temps or radio stations with eye movements or hand gestures.

It’s not enough for a car or crossover to drive itself anymore apparently as Delphi Automotive is working on the next step in autonomous vehicles that can be controlled at the bat of an eyelash.

Well, it’s not quite that simple, but Delphi is bringing its self-driving vehicle to CES 2016, the show formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas next month and it’ll be chock full of new abilities.

The new functionality permits drivers to change the temperature inside the car as well as the radio stations with eye movements and hand gestures. In terms of what the “driver” sees, that person can create a customized three-dimensional instrument panel layout that can look like a 2016 Chevy Corvette or a ’60s era Ford Mustang. (more…)

Autonomous Prototypes Involved in Several Crashes

Accidents dubbed minor; self-driving vehicles not blamed.

by on May.11, 2015

Google has been using modified Lexus and Toyota vehicles for some of its early testing.

Four prototype autonomous vehicles been involved in accidents on California roads over the last eight months, three of them while undergoing testing by Google, considered a leader in the development of self-driving technology.

In two of the crashes, the vehicles were operating in fully autonomous mode, according to a report by the Associated Press. In the other two, the vehicles were being operated in manual mode, meaning a human driver had taken control.

We'll Keep You In the Know!

The AP reported that all of the crashes occurred at relatively low speeds – less than 10 mph. It was not reported whether there were any injuries or how serious the vehicles were damaged.
