BMW Opens Campus to Develop Autonomous Vehicles

BMW recently opened an autonomous driving campus in Bavaria, allowing a centralization of development of fully automated driving.

Fifteen months ago, BMW decided to pool together its development resources in the fields of vehicle connectivity and highly and fully automated driving at a single location, according to a BMW announcement. The campus will house more than 1,500 employees and is near the Research and Innovation Center and motorway network. The company is recruiting software developers in the areas of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analysis. The theory behind this move is that a software developer at the new campus can immediately test the code written for a vehicle, which is located just a short walk away.
