Volvo Cars and NVIDIA deepen ties 2018.10.13

Gothenburg, Sweden - October 10, 2018 - The core computer is based on NVIDIA's DRIVE AGX Xavier technology and will allow Volvo Cars to implement an advanced computing platform for its new cars on the forthcoming Scalable Product Architecture 2 (SPA 2) vehicle platform. The first car with the new core computer will appear early next decade.

Gothenburg, Sweden - October 10, 2018

Volvo Cars, the premium car maker, and NVIDIA, the leading artificial intelligence (AI) computing firm, are joining forces for the development of a highly advanced, AI-capable core computer for the next generation of Volvo cars.

The core computer is based on NVIDIA’s DRIVE AGX Xavier technology and will allow Volvo Cars to implement an advanced computing platform for its new cars on the forthcoming Scalable Product Architecture 2 (SPA 2) vehicle platform.

The first car with the new core computer will appear early next decade.

The agreement will deepen the existing collaboration and partnership between Volvo Cars and NVIDIA.

Last year the companies started joint development of advanced systems and software for self-driving cars.

The new computing platform will use NVIDIA’s advances in AI as well as its unrivalled computing power, allowing Volvo Cars to take considerable steps forward in implementing advanced driver support systems, energy management technology and in-car personalisation options.

Adding advanced 360-degree perception capabilities and a driver monitoring system, the core computer will help Volvo Cars safely introduce fully autonomous cars.

“A successful launch of autonomous drive will require an enormous amount of computing power as well as constant advances in artificial intelligence,” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo Cars.
“Our agreement with NVIDIA is an important piece of that puzzle and helps us to safely introduce fully autonomous Volvo cars to our customers.”

“As a world-leader in safety technology and innovation, Volvo understands there is a direct connection between safety, comfort, and the computing capability inside the vehicle,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA.

NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Xavier delivers 30 TOPS of performance while consuming only 30 watts of power.
Architected for safety, the Xavier SoC incorporates six different types of processors for redundant and diverse deep learning algorithms.

The forthcoming SPA 2 vehicle architecture is the next generation of Volvo Cars’ award-winning SPA modular vehicle architecture, which forms the basis of all new 90 Series and 60 Series cars launched in recent years.
They have been instrumental in the operational and financial turnaround of Volvo Cars since 2010.

SPA 2 takes the existing advantages of the modular SPA architecture and adds next generation technologies in areas such as electrification, connectivity and autonomous drive.

The powerful core computer plays a key role in this process and provides a much easier route towards regular over-the-air software updates.

Volvo Cars is committed to developing strategic relationships with third parties to increase the introduction of new technology, embracing the disruption currently underway in the car industry.
