Technology and automobile companies have concluded a cooperation agreement to jointly develop a system architecture for self-driving vehicles. The partners include Arm, Audi together with Cariad, Baselabs, CoreAVI, Denso, Five, the German Fraunhofer IESE, NXP, the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology and TTTech Auto.

Following the kick-off in 2019 and the Chapter Events in 2020 with more than 1,500 participating experts, The Autonomous has now established a new level of industry-wide collaboration by setting up the first working group entitled "Safety & Architecture". The underlying objective is to define specific reference solutions for complex safety issues within the system architecture of autonomous vehicles. This encompasses subsystems connecting with sensors and fault-containment units to ensure the safe automated operation of the entire vehicle. The resulting vehicle architecture will represent a reference solution within the industry and thus ensure that self-driving mobility becomes reality - quickly and efficiently.
On 29 September 2021, The Autonomous not only held a discussion at a conference in Vienna's Hofburg Palace on the issue of who is developing the safest and most successful autonomous vehicle, but also whether cybersecurity remains a permanent risk and how the international legal situation must be to operate self-driving vehicles safely on the roads.

TTTech – an Austrian high-tech champion and global player in the field of "highly automated driving"

The TTTech Group consists of globally operating high-tech companies with headquarters in Vienna, where the company was originally founded. Launched in 1998 as a spin-off of the Vienna University of Technology, TTTech has emerged as one of the most important companies in the field of self-driving cars over the last 23 years. TTTech Computertechnik, TTControl and TTTech Auto (digital platforms for highly automated vehicles) operate under the umbrella of the TTTech Group. TTTech Auto is in charge of developing the safety software platform MotionWise for automated driving within the group. The European Investment Bank (EIB) provided funding of € 30 million to TTTech Auto in 2020 to finance the further growth of the company.

The most important business partners of the Viennese company are Audi, VW, BMW, Hyundai and SAIC, which is China's largest automobile manufacturer. Major players such as Samsung, Infineon and GE Ventures are also among the existing investors.
