  • Uber and Volkswagen using Nvidia self-driving tech

CES showcases the tech trends that will shape the year ahead.

United States tech firm Nvidia opened the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas with a presentation featuring Volkswagen and Uber - customers that will use its hardware to power next-generation autonomous vehicles.

Nvidia also said its first Xavier processors would be delivered to customers this quarter. Nvidia chief executive Jensen Huang announced the new platforms during his Sunday night keynote address at CES.

The AI infusion will give the Volkswagen I.D. Buzz "Intelligent Co-Pilot" capabilities, which will include convenience and driver assistance systems based on processing sensor data from both inside and outside of the vehicle. BUZZ are "Intelligent Co-Pilot" capabilities, which will include convenience and assistance systems based on processing sensor data from both inside and outside of the auto.

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

The technology will also add facial recognition for unlocking the vehicle from the outside, driver alerts for bicycles, gesture recognition for user controls, natural language understanding for voice control, and gaze tracking for driver distraction alerts.

The I.D. BUZZ is part of the I.D. family with which Volkswagen will launch its electric auto campaign and gradually introduce autonomous driving starting in 2020. DRIVE AR is an SDK to introduce augmented reality-based interfaces for issuing alerts and providing information during the drive.

Nvidia says Xavier only consumes 30 watts of power to perform 30 trillion, providing 15 times energy efficiency than its predecessors. These "mobility-as-a-service" fleets-a system VW Group is now developing-will initially include smaller self-driving vehicles that people can hail as well as larger vans. Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess joined Huang on stage to highlight the new VW I.D. Buzz, a prototype electric vehicle that Volkswagon hopes will cement its place as a market leader for AI computing in cars.

That could serve as the brain of completely driverless "level five" autonomous cars offered by Volkswagen, Uber and 23 other companies relying on Nvidia tech to develop next-generation transport.
