DETROIT, Nov 9 (Businesshala) – Nvidia (nvda.o) is rolling out new technology to expand its reach in the automotive industry, including a virtual driving assistant that can park a standard car and support autonomous vehicles. There is a system to speed up the training of
As part of its new product program centered around its “omniverse” simulation technology, Nvidia chief executive Jensen Huang said the company will begin offering automakers a system called Drive Concierge. It uses Nvidia hardware and artificial intelligence software to provide a variety of services, including an autonomous driving function that allows a human-powered vehicle to self-park.
Another extension of the Omniverse strategy will be a system called “Omniverse Replicator” that will simplify and accelerate the tasks needed to create a virtual world for training automated vehicles.
Nvidia, the world’s largest maker of graphics and artificial intelligence chips, has been pushing for years to expand the technology originally developed for computer gaming and graphics into the auto industry.
Now, Nvidia is trying to capitalize on intense competition among automakers to develop vehicles that can drive themselves and provide sophisticated entertainment and information to the humans on board.
The firm is working to put high-powered chips and software into vehicles, and also sells technology that can create a highly detailed simulation of a factory to help manufacturers cut costs when building new plants. is, or an artificial universe for robotics or self-driving trucks to learn to drive.
Nvidia now has $8 billion in automotive revenue over the next six years, which includes businesses from the automated trucking and robotaxi companies, said Danny Shapiro, Nvidia’s vice president of automotive.
Several automakers including Daimler AG (DAIGn.DE) the Mercedes-Benz luxury vehicle brand, Volvocar AB (VOLCARb.ST) and Nio (NIO.N) partnered with Nvidia to catch up with Tesla Inc. (TSLA.O) Is. A leader in software driven features.
Mercedes and Nvidia announced a partnership in June 2020 with Nvidia’s Nvidia Drive Orin AGX platform to develop a new generation of Mercedes vehicles, engineered to provide autonomous driving and other functions. The first of those Mercedes vehicles is planned for launch in 2024.
