Mercedes-Benz and Nvidia are partnering to develop the next-generation of the automaker’s in-vehicle computing systems that will assist with remote, or over-the-air, updates and automated driving capabilities.

The companies announced the cooperation Tuesday with promises of developing “the most sophisticated and advanced computing architecture ever deployed in an automobile.”

The electrical architecture, or brains, of a vehicle essentially enables the vehicle’s systems to communicate. It also allows the vehicle to receive and send information to outside sources for things such as remote upgrades or service alerts.

Mercedes-Benz will begin to deploy the new architecture across its fleet in 2024, according to the companies. It will use Nvidia’s “Drive” platform, enabling features such as the vehicle’s driver-assist systems to be upgradable. It’s much like how Tesla remotely upgrades systems on its vehicles.

“The entire product is going to be designed differently,” Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia, said during a webcast Tuesday. He described the vehicles as being “perpetual, upgradeable” machines powered by supercomputers.

Customers, the companies said, will be able to purchase and add capabilities, software applications and subscription services through over-the-air software updates during the life of the car.

Such upgrades could provide additional revenue opportunities for the automaker as well as assist in expediting safety recalls or other upgrades.

Nvidia shares were up less than 1% Tuesday afternoon to about $383. Shares earlier in the day hit a 52-week high of $385.70.

The companies did not disclose financial details of the tie-up, which expands on an already-established partnership that included the automaker’s infotainment systems.

“This new platform will become an efficient, centralized and software-defined system in our future Mercedes-Benz vehicles. NVIDIA’s AI computing architecture will help us streamline our journey towards autonomous driving,” Ola Källenius, Chairman of Daimler AG Board and head of Mercedes-Benz AG, said in a statement.

apparently they make system on a chip units (SoCs) for the mobile computing and automotive market too. I always thought they do graphic processing units only.

Learn new things every day :slow:

It sounds attractive, sexy, sophisticated and seems to make life easy for the owners. However, hopefully the system will not intrude into the decision making or even subject the car to non-drivable conditions, based on whatever conditions or situations encountered. Then the owners will really fall prey to the demands of the car and technology makers. For example, it will not allow the car to start even for some really small or negligible issue, and the owner cannot bypass on his own. Or, keep on showing some forms of malfunction alarms to irritate the owner... ooohhh hhhoooo...

One of the lesser known features of navida is the deep fake video or generation of human like video quality 

that alone will be able to sync your calendar and create schedules for your meeting as well as imitate human interaction calls to another person without any inklings of an AI transaction in progress

If I read the investment of Nvidia correctly, it could result in AI / deep learning and does predictive driving in future...
