Two top car parts manufactures are joining forces to produce a driverless car system that will be ready for production by 2019.

Sensors specialist Delphi Automotive PLC (NYSE:DLPH) and real-time mapping group Mobileye NV (NYSE:MBLY) said the system will be compatible with a range of vehicle platforms from small cars to SUVs and crossovers.

, “This partnership will allow us to give our customers an increased level of automated capabilities faster and more cost effective,” said Kevin Clark, Delphi’s chief executive, who added it was a win-win for both companies.

Mobileye had been working with Tesla on the electric car group’s driverless system, but that collaboration ended following a fatal crash earlier thsi year.

Delphi, meanwhile, has started a pilot scheme in Singapore that features driverless pods without a steering wheel or pedals.

Mobileye chairman Amnon Shashua said the partnership would enable customers access to Level 4/5 automation without the need for a huge capital commitment.

The new system will be demonstrated at the Las Vegas CES technology show in January.

Self-driving vehicles are seeing huge amounts of investment currently, with Ford Motor predicting it will have a fully driverless car available by 2021.

Only last week, taxi app group Uber teamed up with Volvo and acquired a San Francisco startup called Otto to work on autonomous vehicles.

General Motors has bought bought Cruise Automation, a West Coast autonomous software company, while Google and Fiat Chrysler are working together on an driverless system.
