Nvidia partners with Uber, Volkswagen in self-driving technology


The overall contributions are understood to be relatively equal on all sides and will combine general artificial intelligence solutions with various related technologies meant to power the first commercially available autonomous vehicles in the Far Eastern country. Nvidia also added that its first Xavier processors would be provided to customers this quarter.

Huang announced the new platforms in his Sunday night keynote address at CES.

Nvidia will partner with Uber Technologies and Volkswagen after its artificial intelligence platforms continue to gain momentum in the automotive industry. It will help the so-called "Smart copter" has better capabilities based on data from sensors located inside and outside the vehicle.

Nvidia's stock price has more than doubled in the past 12 months.

Coli Outbreak: Should You Really Avoid Romaine Lettuce?
Most strains of E. coli are harmless to humans, but some can cause vomiting, diarrhea, severe stomach cramps and other symptoms. Boston Pizza has also discontinued the use of the greens at locations in the affected provinces.

Cars will be unlocked and started using facial recognition features as opposed to keys, they will track a driver's sight lines to make sure they are paying attention, use normal conversational language to access key features, warn drivers of hazards using augmented reality displays and work with natural gestures to interact with key systems.

Drive AR, meanwhile, is geared toward infotainment applications and will essentially fuse computer vision, computer graphics and AI to power augmented reality interfaces inside a vehicle. Working with other hardware in a numberplate-sized package known as "Pegasus", the result, Huang says, is an automotive brain capable of conducting 320 trillion operations per second. The MEB electronic systems will also be gradually introduced to vehicles with conventional drive systems that are based on the MQB architecture.

Nvidia announced two new partnerships with Uber Technologies and Volkswagen AG signalling further expansion into AI technology for self-driving cars. These "mobility-as-a-service" fleets-a system VW Group is now developing-will initially include smaller self-driving vehicles that people can hail as well as larger vans. At the kickoff of the 2018 International CES, Volkswagen CEO Dr Herbert Diess and NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang discussed on stage how AI is transforming the auto industry and highlighted the new I.D.
