New, the Volvo Nvidia -- delivery in 2021
Volvo (“made by Sweden”) is forming a new joint partnership with Autoliv, called Zenuity, with a focus on developing self-driving automotive software. The plan is to eventually get to the point where they can field self-driving cars for sale, based on Nvidia’s Drive PX in-car AI computing platform, by the not-so-distant target year of 2021.
Nvidia’s Drive PX is already being used to power self-driving vehicles in road testing today, including Nvidia’s own demo vehicles. Volvo and Autoliv’s Zenuity will use Nvidia’s AI car compute groundwork as the basis for their own software development, with the hopes of speeding up the development progress of Volvo’s commercially-targeted autonomous vehicles.
