Audi to Globally Roll Out NVIDIA Tegra Visual Computing Module This Year

NVIDIA today announced that Audi's newest auto-infotainment system featuring NVIDIA Tegra technology will be rolled out globally in select vehicles this year.

The innovative Audi MIB modular infotainment system introduces a new powerful computing module, MMX, which is based on the NVIDIA Tegra Visual Computing Module (VCM). The new MIB high-end system is currently available in Europe in the all-new Audi A3. Beginning with major markets in Asia, the system will reach further regions this year and come to the United States and Canada by 2014.

The connected Audi MIB system powers Audi connect, which enables live updates of Google Earth imagery complete with Google Maps Street View 360 degree panoramas. It also facilitates the delivery of other online information, such as real-time gas prices, weather forecasts and points of interest search powered by Google Local Search.

The innovative MIB architecture received the "Best Global OEM Infotainment Solution Award" at the 10th Annual Telematics Update ceremony in Novi, Mich.

"The start of production of the Tegra-based MIB infotainment system was a major milestone for Audi," said Mathias Halliger, head of architecture, MMI system at Audi. "The new modular approach allows us an independent evolution of automotive-cycle and consumer-electronics-cycle multimedia systems so that we can implement the latest and greatest innovations that allow the best possible customer experience with infotainment in the vehicle."
