Uber and Volkswagen using Nvidia self-driving tech
Uber and Volkswagen have partnered with graphics chipmaker Nvidia on self-driving car technology.
The tech is used to help autonomous vehicles interpret the world and make decisions. In the last 100 days alone Uber’s self-driving program has racked up one million miles, according to Nvidia.
The chipmaker’s Nvidia Drive tech is also being adopted into the Drive IX platform on Volkswagen’s future car line-up.
A total of 320 companies involved in self-driving cars across all sectors are now using Nvidia Drive.
Nvidia’s stock price has more than doubled in the past 12 months.
