“The development of automated driving functions for the city presents a major technical challenge that we can only take on in collaboration with strong partners from the automobile and automotive supplier industries and with the support of scientific research institutes. Together, everyone working on @CITY will help to advance current technology by pursuing pre-competitive development of the technologies necessary for the German automobile industry to maintain its leading position.
Only an industrial hub that masters the technologies necessary for automation, and is able to integrate them and efficiently combine them with the emerging systems and subsystems will be able to prevail on, and profit from, the ‘Autonomous Driving’ market of the future.”
