China's Baidu and ZF have both committed to using the NvidiaDrive Xavier for their self-driving cars. The DRIVE Xavier will form the core of the driverless platform that's now in development and will also become available to other manufacturers in the coming weeks, being set for a release in the current quarter of the year.
Nvidia is already working with a multitude of partners on Drive Xavier and Drive AV, including a partnership with Uber that will eventually lead to self-driving rideshare vehicles.
Touted by Nvidia as the "world's most powerful SoC (system on a chip)", Xavier, the next generation of its autonomous driving stack is built to process Level 5 autonomous driving data from a vehicle's radar, cameras, Lidar and ultrasonic systems with greater energy efficiency and a smaller form factor than anything else on the market. "Autonomous driving, zero-emission mobility, and digital networking are virtually impossible without advances in AI and deep learning".
In reaction, Wall Street's top analyst B.Riley FBR analyst Craig Ellis reiterated a Buy rating on Nvidia shares, with a price target of $270, which represents a potential upside of 22% from where the stock is now trading. "Working with NVIDIA, the leader in AI technology, enables us to take a big step into the future".
