Smart vehicles reshape coalitions in the automotive industry

In the automotive industry, car deals are on the rise, with the rapid transition of self-propelled vehicles from research to short-term production in many major automakers around the world.
This shift was behind deals such as those concluded last week between Robert Bosch Supply and Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz. Bush and Mercedes said they would cooperate to develop self-driving vehicles where Bush's broad role in systems integration would be used. Bush expects the joint developed systems to be sold to other companies.

According to Reuters, self-driving cars are expected to start production by 2020 and 2021. But analysts said this type of car would not be widely used before 2030.

Major automobile manufacturers are rich in engineers specializing in the fields of physics, materials science and mechanical systems. The development of self-driving cars requires experts in artificial intelligence, robotics, computer programming and digital networks. Such experts are still largely away from the auto industry.

But companies usually take different paths to gain engineering skills, which has been done in partnerships like those held between Bush and Mercedes. Other companies, such as General Motors, continue to operate in this field independently, acquiring startups in self-driving vehicles and developing technology within the company.
