Volvo and NVIDIA have joined forces to create an advanced artificial intelligence computer to be used in the next generation of the Swedish manufacturer's vehicles.
Nvidia executives said the auto industry is aware that current automated systems aren't reliable enough for more advanced autonomy and that more powerful computers are required.
Volvo in 2015 provided a vision of what autonomous cars could deliver with the Concept 26 (shown).
Slated as a "Level 2+" system, instead of simply a Level 2 automated vehicle, both Nvidia and Volvo are hoping to show the robustness of the platform.
Adding advanced 360-degree perception capabilities and a driver monitoring system, the core computer will help Volvo Cars safely introduce fully autonomous cars.

"As a world leader in safety technology and innovation, Volvo understands there is a direct connection between safety, comfort and the computing capability inside the vehicle". Earlier NVIDIA said that its software is capable of tracking movement of the head and eyes of the driver.
