Volkswagen and Bosch partner to make self-driving software

Volkswagen AG is partnering with Robert Bosch GmbH to develop a common software platform to bring hands-free driving functions to the German carmaker’s entire fleet in a bid to catch up to Tesla Inc.

The platform, announced by VW’s Cariad software unit and Bosch on Tuesday, will serve all Volkswagen Group passenger vehicles before being opened to the wider industry.

Based on my experience of older tech issues that VW have been unable to fix in my vehicle (even when it was under warranty), I shudder to think what will happen with their higher tech vehicles.

And they are doing it in partnership with a company best known (locally at least) for power tools and home appliances.
What could possibly go wrong?
