IllustrationIllustration - Nvidia Corp. announces its new Autopilot Drive platform which is equipped with artificial intelligence technology. This technology can enable self-driving cars to "level up" by 2020. The chip maker said that German automotive suppliers Continental AG and ZF Friedrichshafen AG will use the platform in a "level 2+" self-driving system that will begin production starting on next year.

ZF for the first time has an option to use a chip made by rival Xilinx Inc. along with Nvidia. Level 2+ autonomous vehicles will add greater automation capabilities such as road merging, track changes, line separation, and personal mapping to existing advanced driver assistance systems.

Nvidia said the platform integrates Xavier system-on-chip (SoC) processors and Drive software to process data from sensors outside the vehicle and inside the cabin. The AutoPilot drive is part of the Nvidia Drive platform currently used by hundreds of companies involved in self-driving cars - including Uber Technologies Inc. and Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE), as well as by software developers, automated suppliers, sensor and mapping companies.
