The cross-industry effort includes leading car makers Audi and VW Group along with chip IP vendor Arm, NXP Semiconductors and TTTech Auto, which launched an umbrella group dubbed “The Autonomous.” The stakeholders said their goal is establishing “the basis for safety standardization and series production.”
