Nvidia is bringing new technologies to market to expand its reach in the auto industry, including virtual driver assistants that can park standard cars and systems that accelerate autonomous vehicle learning.
As part of its new product line this fall, which will focus on Omniverse simulation technology, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said the company will start offering automakers a system called Drive Concierge. It uses Nvidia’s AI hardware and software to provide a variety of services, including an autonomous driving feature that allows human-operated cars to park.
Another extension of the Omniverse strategy is a system called the Omniverse Replicator, which makes the task of creating a virtual world for automated vehicle training easier and faster.
Nvidia, the world’s largest producer of graphics and artificial intelligence chips, has been working for years to expand the technology originally developed for computer games and graphics in the automotive industry.
Nvidia is now trying to take advantage of fierce competition from automakers to develop self-driving vehicles that can provide people with the most modern entertainment and information.
The company is working to integrate high-performance chips and software into vehicles and to sell technology that allows manufacturers to create highly detailed factory simulations to reduce costs in building new factories or artificial worlds for robotaxi or autonomous driving.

Nvidia now has $8 billion (approximately Rs.59.245 billion) in auto sales, including truck and auto robot companies, said Danny Shapiro, Nvidia’s vice president of auto industry.
Several automakers, including Daimler, Volvo, and luxury brand Neo Mercedes-Benz, have partnered with Nvidia to take the lead in Tesla’s software-based functionality.
Mercedes and Nvidia announced a partnership in June 2020 to develop a new generation of Mercedes vehicles with Nvidia’s Drive Orin AGX platform to provide autonomous driving and other features. The first of these Mercedes cars is expected to hit the market in 2024.
