If you were interested in the concept of a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica that could drive itself, get ready because Fiat Chrysler is diving much deeper into the world of self-driving car technology. Read all of the need-to-know details below.

To start, this new alliance is composed of various tech and auto-related companies, most notably BMW and Intel, using the strengths of their individual brand identities. Together, with Fiat Chrysler, they plan to research and implement completely self-driving vehicle projects. They plan to have 40 autonomous test vehicles on the road by the end of this year. Then, they’d like to bring these fully self-driving vehicles into real production in 2021.

 

“In order to advance autonomous driving technology, it is vital to form partnerships among automakers, technology providers and suppliers,” Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a statement. “Joining this cooperation will enable FCA to directly benefit from the synergies and economies of scale that are possible when companies come together with a common vision and objective.”

 

“The future of transportation relies on auto and tech industry leaders working together to develop a scalable architecture that automakers around the globe can adopt and customize,” Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said in a statement.
