At the 2019 Investor Day, Robert Csongor, NVIDIA’s vice president and general manager of the Automotive business, stated that the company entered the autonomous driving domain with an aim to reduce the number of car accidents and the rising death toll from these accidents. Autonomous vehicles are divided into five levels with level five being a fully autonomous vehicle that can drive without human intervention.

NVIDIA is working with Volvo on Level 2+ autonomous vehicles that have the capability of supervised self-driving. It is working with Daimler on robo-taxis, which have Level 4 autonomy, and Toyota (TM) for Level 5 autonomy.

Now that NVIDIA has entered the autonomous driving market, it has moved to accelerate its adoption within other domains of the automotive industry. Its automotive vehicle market is expanding beyond cars to include trucks, mobility services like robo-taxis, and commercial vehicles like forklifts, earthmovers, delivery bots, and tractors.
