Therefore, it’s too difficult for only one company to accomplish the entire manufacturing process. To handle this issue, tech and automotive businesses have teamed up with each other to form the Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium (also known as AVCC) to establish a platform which can boost the deployment of autonomous and automated vehicles at large scale.

The members of AVCC include Toyota, NXP Semiconductors, NVIDIA, General Motors, DENSO, Continental, Bosch, and ARM.
