The self-driving relationship will actually be a threesome, as Uber confirmed that the Nvidia chips will continue going into its growing fleet of Volvo XC90 SUV taxis.

Nvidia says Xavier only consumes 30 watts of power to perform 30 trillion, providing 15 times energy efficiency than its predecessors. Nvidia revealed a lot of details about its Xavier AI processors at this year's CES show in Las Vegas.

"We developed the entire stack of autonomous vehicle software", Huang said.

"Artificial intelligence is revolutionising the auto", said Herbert Diess, Volkswagen CEO. This is just one of the many partnerships that NVIDIA has inked to further its position in the self-driving technology arena.

The artificial intelligence tech built by Nvidia is being used by Uber's self-driving vehicle fleets in Pittsburgh and Phoenix, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. "Autonomous driving, zero tailpipe emission mobility and digital networking are virtually impossible without advances in AI and deep learning".

Quake rocks San Francisco Bay Area
It was considered the "Great Earthquake" until 1906, when San Francisco was hit by its last major quake, which killed 700 people. Near San Francisco International Airport, several jolts could be felt. "I felt it in San Rafael", she posted.

Nvidia will help Volkswagen put out its new ID Buzz, the reimatining of the VW MicroBus in electric vehicle form and equipped with AI for the cockpit, self-driving and safety. But the company operated largely in secret until last week when it announced partnerships with Volkswagen Group and Hyundai. And the company's also adding a few marquee names to its list of self-driving technology customers, including Uber and VW. They're betting big on autonomous vehicles and their Drive IX technology is one of the most advanced platforms around. Production vehicles utilizing AI self-driving technologies from NVIDIA, ZF and Baidu are expected on the roads of China starting in 2020.

Nvidia's AI offerings are being used by Uber to help its autonomous fleet make perceptions about the environment it drives through, and make decisions based on that information.

According to Nvidia, Xavier forms the basis of two software platforms - Drive IX and the just announced Drive AR - all of which form part of Nvidia's Pegasus AI computing platform.

First, Volkswagen will be bringing co-pilot capabilities into its cars by infusing Nvidia AI solutions in assistance systems like Voice Assistant, gaze tracking and even leveraging real-time data for better driving.
