Cross-industry collaborations

The development of the technology has given rise to collaborations between stakeholders from a variety of industries. One such collaboration is between Chinese web giant, Baidu, and BMW. Baidu has suggested that it will “roll out” a NHTSA Level 3 autonomous vehicle by the end of this year.

In the drone space, NASA and Verizon are working together in an effort to “develop a sort of air-traffic control on cell towers for small, low-altitude drones”.  The first tests are scheduled for this summer, and “Verizon is working toward offering things like navigation and data for drones by 2017”.
