The big German three automakers will unite in the development of unmanned technology. Audi will join BMW and Daimler later this year. Other brands may join later.

Apparently, competition in the automotive market is gaining new facets. In some matters, even the most ardent opponents decide to join forces. The market dictates its own conditions. More recently, BMW announced the start of joint work on unmanned technology with its main competitor and rival Daimler. Now they will be joined by Audi (Volkswagen).

An official announcement about this will be made at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Audi will join the work before the end of this year. At the moment, the manufacturer from Ingolstadt assures that the new Audi A8 is already equipped with a third-level autopilot, and this is “cooler” than that of BMW and Daimler, but financial difficulties are forcing the company to cooperate.

Audi’s parent company, Volkswagen, recently announced it will join forces with the US giant Ford in an attempt to bring more autonomous technology to the market. This is a new trend, the development of technology requires more funding, time and effort.
