Audi and NVIDIA Expand Visual Computing in the Car

NVIDIA today announced that three new in-vehicle systems powered by the NVIDIAآ® Tegraآ® Visual Computing Module (VCM) will soon begin shipping in Audi's vehicles. Audi's virtual cockpit, powered by NVIDIA Tegra 3, will begin appearing in the Audi TT later this year. These innovative solutions, disclosed at the German automaker's press conference at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show, include:

  • a connected infotainment system with twice the performance of its predecessor;

  • the world's first automotive-grade tablet that is fully integrated into the car's infotainment system; and

  • a high-resolution digital cockpit with unprecedented, vivid 3D graphical displays.

"Audi is a true leader in the development of advanced vehicle electronics," said Taner Ozcelik, vice president and general manager of Automotive at NVIDIA. "Breakthroughs like the first navigation system based on Google Earth and the first automotive-grade tablet demonstrate Audi's strategy to fast track consumer electronics technology into the car."
