The automakers announced that they’re developing Level 4 self-driving cars that can handle freeway driving chores without human intervention, though a driver will still need to be at the wheel.

To pull this off, BMW and Mercedes parent Daimler will share 1,200 autonomous driving experts, often in mixed teams, based at BMW’s automated driving campus near Munich and at two of Daimler’s self-driving test centers.

The groups will focus on building "driver assistance systems, including sensors, as well as a joint data center for data storage, administration and processing, and the development of functions and software," BMW Group said in a press release.

BMW plans to release a Level 3 self-driving car in 20201, while Daimler is teaming with Bosch on an urban self-driving pilot program this year.

The manufacturers agreed to work together on level 4 self driving systems.
