Ssangyong Motor and Katech to cooperate on driverless carSsangyong Motor said yesterday it signed a memorandum of understanding with the Korea Automotive Technology Institute (Katech) for development of a driverless car.
The automaker, now owned by India’s Mahindra, said it will cooperate with Katech in research, and share facilities and manpower.
Ssangyong expects the deal could boost its engineering capability in self-driving cars, which ultimately may allow people to enter a destination and sit back. Some global automakers aim to commercialize the self-driving car by 2020.
