Austria's TTTech to develop control system for SAIC's self-driving vehicle
Automotive News China | 2018/3/20

Austrian technology company TTTech Computertechnik will establish a joint venture with SAIC Motor Corp. to develop a control system for the state-owned Chinese automaker's autonomous driving vehicle. 

Under a contract the two companies signed last week, SAIC will control 50.1 percent of the venture and TTTech will control 49.9 percent.

The joint venture will develop and produce the intelligent driving control central system, TTTech said.

The system will be installed on SAIC¡¯s first intelligent driving vehicle, which is slated to arrive in China later this year. 

The vehicle is the production version of the Wings concept electric vehicle SAIC unveiled last year under the Roewe brand. It provides intelligent driving functions such as ¡°last kilometer autonomous parking¡±, according to TTTech.

Aside from the control system, the joint venture will also develop and build advanced driver assistance systems, automated driving electronic control units and related components for SAIC and other automakers operating in China. 

Additional details about the joint venture have yet to be disclosed.
