Volvo is work­ing with NVIDIA to de­velop self-driv­ing car tech by 2021

Tehran Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

NVIDIA and Volvo an­nounced that they are re­dou­bling their self-driv­ing sys­tem ef­forts by team­ing with a num­ber of other com­pa­nies to de­velop and dis­trib­ute a pro­pri­etary au­ton­o­mous AI plat­form by the start of the next decade.

First off, Volvo has gone in half­sies with Au­to­liv to cre­ate a new soft­ware de­vel­op­ment sub­sidiary called Ze­nu­ity. Volvo and NVIDIA have an­nounced that they’re team­ing up with Ze­nu­ity to de­velop the next gen­er­a­tion of self-driv­ing ve­hi­cle sys­tems which will be built on NVIDIA’s Drive PX AI mo­d­ule.

This is the same mo­d­ule that Tesla al­ready uses and which both Audi and Toyota have be­gun de­vel­op­ing on. The sys­tem stitches to­gether data from its cam­era and radar in­puts, then com­pares what it senses to a known high-def­i­ni­tion map to au­to­mat­i­cally plot a safe course around on­com­ing ob­sta­cles. Volvo hopes to have its pro­duc­tion ve­hi­cles us­ing th­ese self-driv­ing sys­tems avail­able for sale by 2021.
