Delphi Automotive, a leader in advanced driver assistance
systems, 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.
Ottomatika, Inc. is a
leading vendor of software and systems for advanced driving assistance and human-in-the-loop
vehicle automation systems. Ottomatika
is a spin-off from Carnegie Mellon University and is headquartered in
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA.
Delphi, the company that first introduced automotive radar
systems, will integrate its active safety technologies with Ottomatika’s
automated driving software. According to
a press release, 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, adding that “This partnership with
Ottomatika will represent a significant step forward in making automated
driving a reality. Your car just got a
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.
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,” he said in a press release issued by
