Navigant’s research on more than 70 companies to determine who is leading the charge in hardware for AV technology has come up with an answer: Nvidia.
The research looked at three technologies required for the development of AV: sensors, software and computer platforms in the forms of central processing units, field programmable gate arrays, ASICs and graphics processing units.
Determining those companies leading the development process was based on 10 criteria: vision, go-to-market strategy, partners, production strategy, technology, sales, marketing and distribution, product capability, product quality and reliability, product portfolio and staying power.
Of these attributes, Navigant found that Nvidia are the top vendor in terms of automated driving chip development.
