NVIDIA has announced a series of new automotive collaborations which will help bring artificial intelligence to the automotive market.

NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang, who described AI-based deep learning technology as ‘spectacular’ for autonomous driving, has announced that Volvo Cars and Swedish tier 1 supplier Autoliv plan to put NVIDIA AI-based cars into production by 2021.

Additionally, ZF and HELLA have shared a strategic partnership to deliver AI technology with the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) safety certification for the mass deployment of self-driving cars.

Meanwhile, Volkswagen Group has announced a strategic partnership with NVIDIA to apply the powers of AI in its data centres to address a range of enterprise applications and connected services.
