Bosch as well as Nvidia Expect Self-Driving Collaboration to Pay Off—Eventually
Prominent auto-industry suppliers Nvidia as well as Bosch are working together to bring artificial-intelligence advances to millions of vehicles. The Silicon Valley chipmaker as well as the German supplier have provided fresh details on their months-old partnership, with both companies signaling the intent to build self-driving systems in which use next-generation artificial intelligence.
These systems will be sold to automakers for use in mass-market autonomous vehicles. Although neither company committed to a specific timeline, both Bosch as well as Nvidia expect to have a market-ready product early inside the 2020s. The announcement was made in Berlin at Bosch ConnectedWorld, the company’s annual conference dedicated to exploring the Internet of Things.

“Bosch will be advancing automated driving on all technological fronts,” said Volkmar Denner, the company’s global CEO. “We aim to assume a leading role inside the field of artificial intelligence, too.”
To do in which, Bosch will rely on Nvidia, which specializes inside the development of deep learning, a branch of artificial intelligence in which, for the purpose of self-driving vehicles, largely allows systems to learn coming from their previous decisions rather than follow sets of human-coded instructions.
The collaboration with Bosch will utilize Nvidia’s latest Drive PX platform, as well as in which will incorporate the company’s Xavier system on a chip in which the company said can process up to 30 trillion deep-learning operations per second while drawing 30 watts of power. in which’s the performance necessary, the company said, to deploy Level 4 autonomous vehicles. For reference, today’s Mercedes-Benz E-class will be capable of Level 2 autonomy in in which in which incorporates adaptive cruise control in which can bring your vehicle to a stop as well as a lane-keeping system in which can steer your vehicle on highways for short periods of time.
Discussing the way forward, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said, “We’ve truly supercharged our road map to autonomous vehicles,” adding, “We’ve dedicated ourselves to build an end-to-end deep-learning solution. Nearly everyone using deep learning will be using our platform.”
Separately This particular week, Nvidia announced a collaboration with PACCAR, a global truck a new, in which will focus on developing similar AI solutions for autonomous vehicles. PACCAR has developed a proof-of-concept self-driving truck with Level 4 autonomous capabilities in which will be built on Nvidia Drive PX 2 technology. PACCAR, which manufactures the Kenworth, Peterbilt, as well as DAF truck lines, has tested the vehicle on a closed course.

For today, the Bosch–Nvidia collaboration will remain centered on automotive purposes. although Bosch makes a range of consumer products for which in which foresees uses for artificial intelligence, as well as Nvidia’s products are used beyond the auto industry, too. Neither company has closed the door to working together on non-automotive projects.
