Audi has entered into a partnership with Nvidia to use artificial intelligence developed by the company in its automated vehicles from 2020.
Later this year, Audi will introduce the world’s first Level 3 automated vehicle equipped with a first-generation central driver assistance controller, or zFAS, that integrates Nvidia computing hardware and software.
“Nvidia is pioneering the use of deep learning AI to revolutionize transportation,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia. “Audi’s adoption of our Drive computing platform will accelerate the introduction of next-generation automated vehicles, moving us closer to a future of greater driving safety and new mobility services.”
Meanwhile Audi will expand testing of highly automated, artificial intelligence-equipped vehicles on public roads in California and selected states in the USA next year.
