Intel send out word it's self-driving car alliance with Mobileye and BMW Group will use Delphi as a development partner and system integrator. The press release mentions the cooperation between the companies aims to make level 3 to level 5 automated driving technology available for multiple automotive OEMs. At the moment, BMW is the only car maker that has publicly adopted the Intel/Mobileye-based platform but Intel has recently hinted it has some other design wins up its sleeve that it can't share yet with the general public.
The BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye (“Cooperation Partners”) announce their intention to onboard Delphi as a development partner and system integrator for their state-of-the-art autonomous driving platform. The four partners intend to jointly deploy a cooperation model to deliver and scale the developed solutions to the broader OEM automotive industry and potentially other industries.

Delphi has already provided a prototype compute platform to the BMW Group and is working together with Intel and Mobileye in the areas of perception, sensor fusion and high performance automated driving computing.

In July 2016, BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye announced that they are joining forces to make self-driving vehicles become a reality and are collaborating to bring solutions for highly and fully automated driving into series production by 2021. The Cooperation Partners have since developed a scalable architecture that can be adopted by other automotive developers and carmakers to pursue state-of-the-art designs and create differentiated brands.

System integrators, such as Delphi, are critical for the go-to-market strategy of the joint solution to reach multiple automotive OEMs quickly. A key role for Delphi will be the integration of the solution delivered by BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye into OEM vehicle architectures. Additionally, Delphi may also provide required hardware components such as sensors as well as specific customization efforts and applications for differentiation.

This engagement between Delphi and the Cooperation Partners is non-exclusive. The Cooperation Partners are in the process of onboarding additional integration and development partners to support future OEM customer needs.
For your interest, here's a graph that tracks the technology partnerships in the self driving car market. We're still in the early innings of this revolution but at the moment NVIDIA has by far the most publicly known design wins, including two of the top three car makers in terms of volume.
