Audi Teams Up With Nvidia To Build A Car That Computes


Audi and Nvidia are committed to bring mobile computing to the car, upping the ante of how technology plays into the driving experience

The car of the future is about to become a reality if Audi and Nvidia have anything to say about it. Rupert Stadler, Chairman of Audi, announced an intention to bring serious computing power to future Audi models thanks to a partnership with Nvidia.

Stadler indicated a technological revolution was already in place, hidden away under the dash, that affords connectivity and supports services to make the cars we drive safer, more entertaining, and ultra convenient.

“What you are seeing here is that the idea of electronics, lifestyle and automobiles are becoming ever more tight,” he said in an announcement Thursday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Audi had a new concept car on display during the presentation called the Audi E-Tron Spyder. It’s a sports car that runs solely on electric power and underscores Stadler’s point to a T. The car is capable of 0 to 60 mile per hour times of 4.7 seconds.

The advances by Audi engineers have made some amazing things possible such as a self-driving Audi making it’s way up the Pike’s Peak climb with it’s own GPS on board navigating the car. No driver was required.

Bringing computing power to the table to match horsepower is the future of the automobile industry. Auto manufacturers are racing to digitize the automobile.
