Nvidia is deeply involved in creating a complete autopilot for autonomous cars.

Currently, Nvidia’s developments are used by such major automakers as Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and Audi. Actually, Audi’s Virtual Cockpit is one of the most popular use cases for Nvidia technology in the automotive industry. The other day Densen Huang, the head of Nvidia, told Autonews Europe about his thoughts on autonomous vehicle control systems.

He said that by 2030 he expects to see about 20% of cars on public roads that will be equipped with high-level autopilot. At the same time, the remaining cars will be equipped with autonomous driving systems of level 2.5 – autopilots of the same level as now, only more “smart”.

He also said that the maximum level of autonomous control will be used only in delivery services and robotic taxi services, where robots can work around the clock. Huang also noted that autopilots should not replace people in all walks of life – they should be perceived as something that improves people’s performance.
