Audi announced Tuesday that its forthcoming A8 (ships in 2018) would be the first production vehicle to ship with a Level 3 self-driving feature onboard. Level 3 autonomy on the A8 will mean that drivers don’t have to pay attention to the road in certain conditions. Current highway driving assistance features like Tesla’s Autopilot, are classified as a Level 2 system.
Nvidia’s technology will be helping power the vehicle’s ‘traffic jam pilot’ autonomous capabilities. Nvidia’s processor is the “brain” of Audi’s zFAS system. The car has six Nvidia processors.
