Bosch said this week it will work with a leading US tech company to develop an AI onboard computer for use in autonomous cars.

NVIDIA will supply Bosch with a chip ‘that stores algorithms, generated with machine learning methods’ for a computer expected to enter production within five years.

NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said in company blog: “We’ve really supercharged our roadmap to autonomous vehicles. We’ve dedicated ourselves to build an end-to-end deep learning solution. Nearly everyone using deep learning is using our platform.”

Dr Volkmar Denner, chairman of the Bosch board of management, added: “Automated driving makes roads safer, and artificial intelligence is the key to making that happen. We are making the car smart.”
