Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has announced a new multi-year partnership with NVIDIA. The two companies will work together to develop autonomous driving technology and connected services for future vehicles.
Starting in 2025, all JLR vehicles will based on the NVIDIA DRIVE software platform, which will allow them to deliver active safety, automated driving and parking systems, and driver assistance systems.
It will also allow for the ability to monitor drivers and occupants, and provide a visualization of the outside world.
According to JLR, the full-stack solution will be based on NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion, which features DRIVE Orin AV computers and DRIVE AV and DRIVE IX software.
“Next-generation cars will transform automotive into one of the largest and most advanced technology industries. Fleets of software-defined, programmable cars will offer new functionalities and services for the life of the vehicles. We are thrilled to partner with Jaguar Land Rover to reimagine the future of transportation and create the most advanced cars,” said NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang on the partnership.
The partnership comes at a time when the automaker is transitioning to an all-electric fleet. The Jaguar brand will only sell electric vehicles (EVs) by 2025, followed by Land Rover in 2030.
Those future EVs will be based on their in-house designed platform, for which they recently received a state-sponsored 5-year loan of $670 million to do so.
