BMW Plans Level 3 ADAS Tech for 2025
March 15, 2022—BMW last week laid out plans to advance its autonomous driving technologies over the next several years, ultimately eyeing a deployment of Level 3 ADAS sometime in 2025.
According to a report from Car and Driver, the automaker is working with telecommunications giant Qualcomm and sensor software company Arriver to "develop next-generation automated driving solutions." The three aim to have a Level 3 driving system available in the second half of 2025. Level 3 autonomy would allow drivers the ability to ride without having their hands on the steering wheel or look at the road at all times.
The announcement comes on the heels of BMW confirming its next-gen ADAS systems will use a Qualcomm chip and Arriver software.
"That platform will include a common reference architecture, sensor specifications, and safety requirements," the report said.
