Editor’s note: This article is from Krypton 36 “Future automotive Daily” (micro-channel public number ID: auto-time), Author: Gu feathers.Source: Mercedes-Benz official author 丨 Gu Lingyu editor 丨 Zhou You just stopped the research and development cooperation with BMW in the field of autonomous driving, and Mercedes-Benz found “the next home”.On June 24, Huang Renxun, founder and CEO of NVIDIA, and Ola Källenius, global president of Mercedes-Benz Auto Group, announced in a media live broadcast event that the two companies will jointly develop “software-definedvehicle”.The two parties are collaborating to develop Nvidia’s next-generation DRIVE AGX Orin computing platform, which supports various services from over-the-air software update (OTA) to autonomous driving. It will be popularized on the next-generation Mercedes-Benz models as early as 2024.The cooperation between the two parties aims to improve the performance and autonomous driving capabilities of the new generation of vehicles.This new technology is based on its recently announced Nvidia Ampere supercomputing architecture, which Nvidia claims will increase AI computing power by 20%.The two companies will jointly develop AI and autonomous driving applications, including L2 and L3 driving assistance functions, as well as automatic driving functions up to L4 level.This new in-vehicle computing architecture will also support OTA, a technology that Tesla has used over the years to continuously upgrade the features and functions of its electric vehicles.This also means that in 2024, Mercedes-Benz owners can still use the driver assistance system services that keep pace with the times after buying vehicles for months or even years.Kang Linsong said that moving to this new computing platform is crucial to Mercedes-Benz’s business model.”Many people are talking about modern cars. New cars are like smartphones with wheels. In fact, you must look at the source software architecture from a holistic perspective.” He said, “One of the most important application areas here is driver assistance.This needs to be combined with our software-driven architecture in order to be able to improve computing performance for consumers.” Kang Linsong added that this will also become one of the long-term revenue sources of its business.The new in-vehicle computing platform will transfer Mercedes-Benz cars to systems based on software applications.In theory, this will enable Mercedes-Benz to introduce third-party applications in its vehicles. The software-based application system will allow customers to purchase and add functions and software applications through airborne software updates during the car’s use.Procedures and subscription services.The cooperation between the two is not an impulsive move.Last year, the two sides announced the joint development of next-generation Mercedes-Benz cars.At that time, Huang Renxun said that both companies believe that the future of cars is defined by software, and they should start to develop software for today’s needs, forecast software for tomorrow’s needs, and build computing architecture as soon as possible.At the 2018 CES show, Mercedes-Benz and Nvidia once cooperated to launch the Mercedes-Benz User Experience cockpit.The cockpit incorporates artificial intelligence into daily driving and is currently installed on more than 10 Mercedes-Benz models.This software-centric computing system will become the standard configuration for Mercedes’ next-generation cars.If Mercedes-Benz adopts the same route as the next-generation in-vehicle infotainment system MBUX in its deployment strategy, it may mean that Mercedes-Benz A-class will use this technology earlier than S-class.Welcome to the future car daily
