Bosch announced that it is working with NVIDIA on artifical intenlligence (AI) systems for self-driving mass market vehicle. NVIDIA won the Tech CARS’ Award for best autonomous car driving platform from AUTO Connected Car News.
Bosch CEO, Dr. Volkmar Denner unveiled the collaboration during his keynote address at Bosch Connected World. NVIDIA and Bosch are developing an AI self-driving car computer built on NVIDIA’s deep learning software and hardware that enables vehicles to be trained on the complexities of driving, operated autonomously and updated over the air with new features and capabilities.
The Bosch AI car computer system will be based on next-generation NVIDIA DRIVE™ PX technology with Xavier, the upcoming AI car superchip, the world’s first single-chip processor designed to achieve level-4 autonomous driving. The unprecedented level of performance of Xavier is necessary to handle the massive amount of computation required for the tasks self-driving vehicles must perform. These include running deep neural nets to sense surroundings, understanding the 3D environment, localizing themselves on an HD map, predicting the behavior and position of other objects, as well as computing car dynamics and a safe path forward.
