Jaguar Land Rover partners with NVIDIA to produce intelligent luxury vehicles
16 February 2022
Starting in 2025, all new Jaguar & Land Rover vehicles will be built on the NVIDIA DRIVE software-defined platform
Starting in 2025, all new Jaguar & Land Rover vehicles will be built on the software-defined NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion platform — using AI to deliver a wide spectrum of active safety, driver assistance, automated driving & self-parking capabilities.
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has formed a long-term multi-year strategic partnership with NVIDIA, a leader in artificial intelligence (AI) & computing, to jointly develop and deliver next-generation automated driving systems plus AI-enabled services and experiences for its customers.
As part of JLR’s Reimagine strategy, this partnership aims to transform the modern luxury motoring experience for customers starting in 2025. Software experts from both companies will jointly develop AI-powered autonomous driving and connected services for all future vehicles built on NVIDIA DRIVE. Next-generation safety and unique, brand-focused digital services will be enabled by NVIDIA AI.
These vehicles will be continuously upgradeable, built on a unified computer architecture that delivers software-defined features and services for ongoing customer value, while unlocking innovative new business models. The combination of centralised high-performance compute and intelligent features upgraded over-the-air (OTA) also streamlines supply chain management.
Starting in 2025, all new Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles will be built on the NVIDIA DRIVE™ software-defined platform — delivering a wide spectrum of active safety, automated driving and parking systems, as well as advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). Inside the vehicle, the system will deliver AI features, including driver and occupant monitoring, as well as advanced visualisation of the vehicle’s environment.
This full-stack solution is based on NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion™, which features DRIVE Orin™ centralised AV computers; DRIVE AV and DRIVE IX software; safety, security and networking systems; plus, surround sensors. DRIVE Orin is the AI brain of the car and runs the Jaguar Land Rover Operating System, while DRIVE Hyperion is the central nervous system.
Jaguar Land Rover will also leverage in-house developed data centre solutions with NVIDIA DGX™ for training AI models and DRIVE Sim software built on NVIDIA Omniverse™ for real-time physically accurate simulation. Jaguar Land Rover’s software-defined features and its end-to-end verification and validation architecture will enable the delivery of innovative assisted and automated driving services throughout the life of the vehicle via over-the-air software updates.
Thierry Bolloré, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Executive Officer said: “Collaboration and knowledge-sharing with industry leader NVIDIA is essential to realising our Reimagine strategy, setting new benchmarks in quality, technology and sustainability.
“Jaguar Land Rover will become the creator of the world’s most desirable luxury vehicles and services for the most discerning customers. Our long-term strategic partnership with NVIDIA will unlock a world of potential for our future vehicles as the business continues its transformation into a truly global, digital powerhouse.”
Jensen Huang, NVIDIA founder & Chief Executive Officer said: “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.”
Jaguar Land Rover aims to achieve net-zero carbon emissions across its supply chain, products and operations by 2039.
