CES 2018: Nvidia Partners With Volkswagen, Uber for Self-Driving Cars

CES 2018: Nvidia Partners With Volkswagen, Uber for Self-Driving Cars”

CEO told an audience at the technology conference in Las Vegas that Uber's self-driving auto fleet was using Nvidia technology to help its autonomous cars perceive the world and make split-second decisions. This was announced at this year's Consumer Electronics Show and stems from the recent advances made by the graphics chipmaker's artificial intelligence platforms.

Nvidia also said its first Xavier processors would be delivered to customers this quarter. "It begins with Xavier, which can do deep learning, computer vision and high performance computing at highly efficient levels". As for the size of chip, the company claims it's much smaller than what's now available.

While Nvidia might be a household name for many when it comes to gaming thanks to their top-of-the-line GPUs (graphics processing units), they have also branched out from their core business becoming a top player in the field of cryptocurrencies and SoCs.

"Nvidia is a key technology provider to Uber as we bring scalable self-driving cars and trucks to market".

Uber will use Nvidia's hardware to power the AI of its fleet of self-driving vehicles.

The idea is building on NVIDIA's DRIVETM IX Intelligent Experience platform, AI-enabled features like facial recognition for unlocking the vehicle from the outside, driver alerts for bicycles, gesture recognition for user controls, natural language understanding for flawless voice control, and gaze tracking for driver distraction alerts. The technology will enable so-called "intelligent co-pilot" capabilities based on processing sensor data inside and outside the auto.
