The well-known automobile giant, “Volkswagen”, announced in 2018 that it would invest significant funds in the development of electric vehicles, digitalization and autonomous driving technology. Two years later, in cooperation with the software company “Microsoft”, they are working on the development of a system for autonomous vehicles.

The main idea is for Volkswagen to use Microsoft’s cloud computing services to develop an Automated Driving Platform (ADP), which will be used for cars that do not need drivers.

Volkswagen started developing its operating system (VW.OS) last year, which connects cars into a single network using the Car.Software unit.

The technology needed for autonomous driving to function is evolving, it is necessary to process large amounts of data. That is why this car manufacturer needs the help of software companies, in order to make autonomous driving as safe as possible for passengers, thanks to the latest solutions, artificial intelligence systems and databases.

Volkswagen will invest 27 billion euros in the development of digitalization by 2025, and the company says that it will start testing its autonomous vehicles by the end of the year.

Almost all car manufacturers are developing their own vehicles in which it will not be necessary for a person to sit behind the wheel and drive. In order for autonomous vehicles to become the only participants in traffic kIt is important to improve the system for recognizing other participants in traffic, but also fast and efficient exchange of information between intelligent cars, in order to reduce the possibility of risky situations to zero.
