Volvo has been working on self driving cars for some time and now the company has announced a new partnership with NVIDIA.
The car maker is working with Atoliv and NVIDIA to develop the hardware and software to power self driving cars.
“This cooperation with NVIDIA places Volvo Cars, Autoliv and Zenuity at the forefront of the fast moving market to develop next generation autonomous driving capabilities and will speed up the development of Volvo’s own commercially available autonomous drive cars,” said Hakan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo Cars.
Jensen Huang, chief executive of NVIDIA, said: “Artificial intelligence is the essential tool for solving the incredibly demanding challenge of autonomous driving. We are building on our earlier collaboration with Volvo Cars to create production ready vehicles that will make driving safer, lead to greener cities and reduce congestion on our roads.”
Volvo are looking to launch their first full self driving cars by 2021 and you can find out more details about the plans over at Volvo at the link below.
