The automatic car maker company or the electric car maker Tesla is working with AMD or “Advanced Micro Devices” for embellishing its own self-driving cars’ Artificial Intelligence chip. On Wednesday this was reported by the CNBC while it was citing a source with a similar case.
Tesla is taking measures in decreasing its reliance on Nvidia that has supplied this electric automaker company with the future self-driving system and the graphics processing units power Autopilot of Tesla. Tesla is now into developing its own chip for its automatic vehicles. This will lead to decrease in the involvement of Nvidia in Tesla and will bring the self-driving car ambition project more within the Tesla’s house.
As per the report, Tesla is currently digging its hands into AMD, the semiconductor Company. While AMD and Tesla instantly didn’t return to the request for comments by the Business Insiders, on the other hand, Nvidia rejected to comment.
Further, according to a source told the CNBC, Tesla already received back samples of its processors of its first implementation and lately is running tests on it. The report that tells Tesla is working on its own self-ruling driving chip along with the showcase of the fact that the company is also working on emerging a new hardware suite with increased computing power. It is to help the company to achieve its aim in building a fully automated system.
This full autonomy goal will be demanding a large amount of computing power for processing all the produced data and telemetry by the various sensors and cameras of the car. Because of this reason many big chip makers of the world are staking out place on the autonomous driving.
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, said that transitioning from the reliance was a “tough slog” on the vision chip of Mobileye. In extending trade the shares of AMD were up to 2.2%.
