An excerpt from Channel News Asia:
German automaker BMW and Chinese online gaming giant Tencent Holdings are teaming up to launch a computing center in China that will help develop self-driving cars.
The computing center, which will start operations by the end of the year, will provide cars with data-crunching capabilities to help them drive semi-autonomously and, eventually, autonomously. BMW said the new computing center will leverage Tencent's cloud computing and big data, and provide the automaker with infrastructure needed to develop the autonomous cars.
BMW says it will likely introduce semi-autonomous cars in China in 2021 which would need massive computing power to analyse real-time flow of digital information on road and traffic conditions.
