But Nvidia now says that the Drive forms the basis of the Drive IX and the newly announced Drive AR, all of which form a part of the company's Pegasus AI computing system.

"Xavier will power the Nvidia Drive software stack, now expanded to a trio of AI platforms covering every aspect of the experience inside next-generation automobiles", said Nvidia.

Notably, the first samples of the Xavier Drive will be rolled out in 2018's first quarter.

This solution is created not only for Chinese automakers, but any vehicle maker planning to do business in China, and can scale from super Level 2 automated driving capabilities to Level 5 fully autonomous robotaxis.

"Artificial intelligence is revolutionising the auto", said Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess.

In case you weren't aware, Nvidia is in to way more than GPUs these days.

The artificial intelligence tech built by Nvidia is being used by Uber's self-driving vehicle fleets in Pittsburgh and Phoenix, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Drive Xavier is the most complex system-on-a-chip (SoC) ever, with a whopping 9 billion transistors.

Nvidia is pushing Drive IX as the ultimate SDK for vehicle safety and convenience.

With two of the world's three biggest manufacturers on board, Nvidia is poised to dominate the autonomous vehicle game.

Aurora was founded by Sterling Anderson, a former director of the semi-autonomous Autopilot program at Tesla; Drew Bagnell, who headed the autonomy and perception team at Uber's Advanced Technologies Center; and Urmson, the former head of Google's self-driving project.

USA chipmaker Nvidia kickstarted the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 by unveiling the autonomous machine intelligence processor that will be at the heart of its over 320 self-driving collaborations.

Volkswagen announced that it will use Nvidia's Drive IX platform to build in features like gesture control, natural language processing, facial recognition, and more.

"NVIDIA's AI supercomputing architecture is ideal for our autonomous driving applications, as it can process huge amounts of data from sensors in real time, and localize the vehicle on our high-definition digital maps", Zhenyu Li, vice president and general manager of the Intelligent Driving Group at Baidu, said in a press release.
