Companies will jointly develop AI-powered autonomous driving and connected services
Jaguar Land Rover has formed a multi-year strategic partnership with NVIDIA, the leader in artificial intelligence (AI) and computing, to jointly develop and deliver next-generation automated driving systems plus AI-enabled services and experiences for its customers.
Starting in 2025, all new Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles will be built on the NVIDIA DRIVE software-defined platform—delivering a wide spectrum of active safety, automated driving and parking systems as well as driver assistance systems.
Inside the vehicle, the system will deliver AI features, including driver and occupant monitoring as well as advanced visualisation of the vehicle’s environment, the manufacturer indicated via a press release.
This full-stack solution is based on NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion, which features DRIVE Orin centralised AV computers; DRIVE AV and DRIVE IX software; safety, security and networking systems; plus, surround sensors. DRIVE Orin is the AI brain of the car and runs the Jaguar Land Rover Operating System, while DRIVE Hyperion is the central nervous system.
“Collaboration and knowledge-sharing with industry leader NVIDIA is essential to realising our Reimagine strategy, setting new benchmarks in quality, technology and sustainability,” remarked Thierry Bolloré, CEO, Jaguar Land Rover.
“Next-generation cars will transform automotive into one of the largest and most advanced technology industries. Fleets of software-defined, programmable cars will offer new functionalities and services for the life of the vehicles,” commented Jensen Huang, founder and CEO, NVIDIA.
Jaguar Land Rover aims to achieve net-zero carbon emissions across its supply chain, products and operations by 2039, the company stated.
