BMW, Intel and computer vision firm Mobileye have signed a deal to develop autonomous vehicles, BBC reports.


The three firms will collaborate on the systems needed to make cars that can navigate without any help from a human driver.


The vehicles will be capable of driving safely along major roads as well as in suburban and inner city areas.


BMW said it hoped the collaboration would mean it could put robot cars into production by 2021.


The research partnership was announced on the day when US officials begin an investigation into a fatal car crash involving a Tesla Model S, to which self-driving technology could have contributed.
