Nvidia partners with Foxconn to develop self-driving electric cars

Nvidia started planning for the autonomous driving market very early. Although the electric vehicle market has boomed in recent years, Nvidia’s performance is not outstanding. In addition to releasing new products as planned for this year CES event, Nvidia’s actions in the automotive field are also worthy of attention.

According to Wccftech, Nvidia will cooperate with Foxconn to enter the electric vehicle market and build an autonomous vehicle platform based on Nvidia’s Drive Orin computing platform. The electric vehicles produced by Foxconn will use Nvidia’s ECU and sensors for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to achieve a complete set of solutions for highly automated driving. According to the agreement between the two parties, Foxconn will speed up the pace of electric vehicle manufacturing and reduce costs, while Nvidia hopes to promote the manufacture of its components.

The Nvidia automaker has long provided the hardware that runs infotainment systems, betting on driver-assistance system software and related chips. At this year’s CES, Nvidia announced plans to introduce the GeForce Now cloud gaming service to cars. BYD demonstrated at the CES exhibition that it is equipped with Nvidia GeForce Now cloud game service to fully upgrade the mobile entertainment experience for users. There are not only BYD but also Hyundai, Kia, Genesis, and Polestar, who have similar plans.
