Cutting edge tech created by the tie-up could lead to completely driverless vehicles within the next decade

The tech giant has already supplied Waymo’s current driverless Chrysler Pacifica MPVs with technology for “everything from connectivity to sensor-data processing”, says The Verge.

The collaboration means the two companies could eventually produce vehicles capable of driving “in any condition without human intervention”, reports the website. 

Both firms are on course to deliver driverless technology capable of Level 4 and 5 autonomy, reports Engadget. This means vehicles would be able to perform manoeuvres without any driver input. 

Brian Krzanich, Intel’s chief executive, says self-driving systems can make roads safer by learning “from the collective experience of millions of cars.”

There's no word on when the partnership is expected to deliver its first fully autonomous system. But Auto Express says the technology could appear within the next decade. 

Details of the collaboration are scarce, but Mashable says both companies have accumulated "impressive sets of allies in the effort to create self-driving systems”.

Waymo has partnerships with Chrysler, the vehicle rental firm Avis and the Left ride-sharing service, the site says, while Intel. has bought the driving technology company Mobileye and allied itself with BMW and the Fiat group.
