NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) has drawn partnerships with 370 companies in the global automotive sector to strengthen its artificial intelligence-enabled self-driving technology. Several market experts rank Nvidia among the top companies that will benefit from the massive adoption of self-driving car technology.
There are 370 Nvidia partnerships in the automotive sector, with only Tesla straying from Nvidia’s technology for its own. To ensure that the safety of people and vehicles, NVIDIA has created DRIVE AGX. This platform allows vehicle sensors to gather and analyze data to achieve environmental sensing, route planning, and driver control. With a reported, 254 trillion operations per second (TOPS), the DRIVE AGX Orin processor, made by Intel, will appear in Mercedes-Benz cars starting in 2022 and Nio electric vehicles. DRIVE AGX platforms are also continually updated to achieve maximum scalability.
Tesla (TSLA) dropped its partnership with Nvidia in favor of developing autonomous driving technologies on its own, but other electric car manufacturers followed Nvidia’s digital assistants. Nvidia’s automotive division has partnered with Volkswagen, Audi, Toyota, Hyundai, Volvo, Mercedes, and Tesla’s Chinese competition, Li Auto, Xpeng, and Nio, to develop driving technologies for autonomous vehicles.
Given that carmakers plan to launch autonomous cars based on a subscription model (like Tesla), Nvidia would be receiving licensing fees that would have the capability of generating large amounts of regular revenue if it launches autonomous taxis and cars on a large scale.
Volkswagen suffered a significant software miscalculation for its ID.3 electric vehicles led to significant losses and demonstrated the importance of remote software updates. Despite spending $50 billion to build a Tesla competitor, Volkswagen was forced to recall 50,000 ID.3s last week due to software bugs manually rectified by technicians.
