During a joint press conference held Wednesday, NVIDIA and Mercedes Benz announced that they are teaming up to develop a “revolutionary in-vehicle computing system” for the automakers next generation of luxury automobiles in 2024.

Touted as “the most sophisticated and advanced computing architecture ever deployed in an automobile,” per an NVIDIA press release, this new software system will enable Level 2 and 3 driving autonomy — that’s on par and exceeding the current abilities of Tesla’s Autopilot, respectively — and Level 4 parking autonomy. That means that the vehicle will be able to, by and large, fit itself into parking stalls without any help from the human driver. There will still need to be a human on hand in case things go catastrophically sideways, but under normal conditions, there won’t be much call for them to intercede.

This may be silly but I sincerely hope the Mercedes connection doesn't add extra costs to the graphics cards, they're already so expensive, the good ones. I'm concerned about the upcoming 3000 line also, how much are these going to cost?

"Mercedes" = snob appeal. Wasn't Chevrolet good enough for ya? Hope NVIDIA doesn't get all "boutique" on us--the great unwashed.

Google: It's not just about Chrome anymore
Microsoft: It's not just about Windows anymore
NVIDIA: It's not just about graphics cards anymore

But don't you all forget where you started out. Meh, too late.
