Volvo, Autoliv to build Nvidia-based automated driving platform

In the automotive industry, chipmaker Nvidia currently is on a roll: Swedish carmaker Volvo and tier one supplier have teamed up with the Californian visual computing chips company Nvidia to develop advanced systems and software for self-driving cars. At the same time, Volkswagen?s artificial competence center Data Lab has announced a strategic partnership with Nvidia.

By Christoph Hammerschmidt eeNewsautomotive, Jun. 27, 2017 – 

Volvo, Autoliv and Nvidia plan to work together with Zenuity, a recently launched joint venture owned by Volvo and Autoliv to develop next-generation self-driving car technologies. Earlier, Volvo has announced its intention to make level 4 autonomous vehicles ready for series production by 2021. Level 4 means that the car is capable of driving from A to B without driver interaction unless when an unforeseeable complication occurs - in such cases the car is able to perform a safe stop and hand over to the driver.

As part of their collaboration, Volvo, Autoliv and Zenuity will use Nvidia's AI car platform as the foundation for their own advanced software development. "Artificial Intelligence is the essential tool for solving the incredibly demanding challenge of autonomous driving", commented Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang. He added that his company is building on earlier collaboration with Volvo to create production-ready vehicles.

The collaboration agreement gives Autoliv full access to Nvidia's AI computing platform for autonomous driving. The systems to be developed will utilize deep learning to recognize objects in their environment, anticipate potential threats and navigate safely. They can compare real-time situational awareness with a known high-definition road map which enables them to plan a safe route and drive along it with high precision, adjusting to ever-changing circumstances. Other safety-relevant functions include stitching camera inputs to a complete surround view of the car.
