When Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang is constantly anticipating the future, it is best to sit back and listen to what he has to say. The company is currently working extensively with the world’s best automakers, including Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen and Hyundai. For example, the entire digital system of modern Audi products is powered by Nvidia chips.
In his latest interview with Autonews Europe, he talked about a variety of issues, including self-driving cars, the challenges facing automakers, and software.
In one of his most controversial predictions, he claims that by 2030, about 20 percent of the cars sold will be equipped with high-end car systems, and most of them will use Nvidia’s processing systems.
He believes the system will be used in a variety of forms, including assassins, taxis, shuttles and delivery robots. Also, regarding the level of automation of these systems, level 4 will probably be used for the delivery of goods in universities and other regions, because it is the most cost-effective and safest option.
But personal cars will only remain at level 2, which is much more advanced than it is today.
In fact, in 2030 you will control the car with your mind and the car will do everything for you. Car parking in the parking lot, on the highway, and driving in traffic will be completely self-sufficient, and level 2 alone can transform the driving experience.
“Artificial intelligence and robots will not replace humans, but will improve the standard of living of humans,” says Jens Huang. “They will not completely replace the driving experience, as I personally enjoy driving, but the Tesla car system is also very relaxing and I like it.”
Huang also sees electric vehicles as more of a luxury item than a means of protecting the environment.
In his opinion, an electric car has a silky, calm feeling without inhaling the bad smell of gasoline and diesel, so that I have not personally visited the gas station for several years, so this experience is very luxurious and expensive. Also, regarding the many problems of the Volkswagen Group in relation to the production of its own software, it should be said that large companies have to have their own software.
The main reason is that companies do not just build cars, but also have to design a system to control a fleet. As seen in large media companies.
Systems must be ready to serve millions of cars on the road. Not all of these companies will be able to cope with this transition, and the time it takes for each company to reach the desired point will be different, so companies that make the transition sooner will be rewarded with greater rewards. This transfer should take place in the next 5 years.
