NVIDIA's own Xavier chips will be used on the hardware side, with the company using their operating system and software from their DRIVE suite, while Continental takes care of its security certification experience with its LiDar radar technology, as well as their camera products.

 

Continental and NVIDIA are aioming for their self-driving car platform to hit level 2 autonomy, which will include smart cruise control similar to Tesla's Autopilot technology, right through to level 5 which would be a full self-driving car without steering implements. Wow.

 

NVIDIA has been racking up agreements with some of the largest players in the automotive world, with Continental joining the likes of Audi, Toyota, Volvo, Volkswagen, Baidu, and working with Tesla heavily in the past, too.
