    Tesla is about to increase its lead in semi-autonomous driving w/ ‘Tesla Vision’: computer vision based on NVIDIA’s parallel computing

    Nice business plan...leave the peasant gaming community and target a necessity... travel! well done Nvidia...there'll always be more money in travel then gaming.

    Maybe it only affects towing a trailer or another car: Needs a driver update to enable SLI! Lower end models have SLI disabled, so no towing.

    This is Nvidia we're talking about. They will expand into other markets where possible. They won't leave the gaming market, why? Because the products they develop suit a wide-range of uses, including gaming.

    In the future, the car industry will likely demand gpu's developed, especially for auto-drive systems and Nvidia will meet that demand as and when needed.

    This is just another branch on the Nvidia tree. Diversifying will keep their business going for years to come.

    The autonomous systems still can't 100% correctly handle swerving roads, mountain roads, dirt roads, urban traffic, sudden pedestrians, ZEBRAS, cyclists etc, and they'll need improved GPS data, inter-car communication and intelligent infra-structure to actually be SAFE and beneficial to traffic congestion. Tesla aren't leading (Motor Trend compared favorably to a three year old S-class, yet AFTER the new E-class launched with a far superior system...kind of conspicuous) and none of the available systems are really good at driving on highways safely 100% of the time. Mercedes has AMAZING collision prevention tech, but they still aim to let the car communicate to the human driver before letting the car take action itself. It's fun to see how simply driving on can also prevent a collision, and that the autonomous system can actually compare distance, speeds etc well enough to make such a decision. But then again...the same basic system will happily try to do 90 km/h on a swerving mountain road because the sign read '90', even with a hairpin turn ahead and the GPS outdated etc. Even if the car manages to come through alright, the passengers will be completely freaked out. The latter is also an important factor in deciding the tech's mature enough lol...

    Nice in-sight.

    I honestly think like any industry, there needs to be a universal standard.

    If they really want to see if these systems work, they need to take these vehicles to highly congested places. Indonesia would be a good one, with bikers coming in and out doing as they please, it would be a great testing ground.

    Aw man, and here I was hoped we gonna laugh together at nvidia and drivers.

    Thank you for insight. Perhaps our grandkids won't see a wheel in the cars and there will be metas and memes of cars exchanging jokes with passengers and sending people to all weird places.

    As far as I'm concerned, most of Nvidia's revenue comes from everything BUT gaming.

    Nvidia and Tesla's Autopilot system wouldn't make it in Indonesia for sure and no Autopilot can replace a experienced human driver.
