The first prototype of collaborative companies Nvidia and Audi should officially debut as early as this year. And up to 2020 “road” version of the car-robot will be ready. The car will be able to move independently on public roads at high speeds. Autopilot with such a high level of control will allow drivers to give up driving if desired.
