Audi has revealed some new details about their autonomous driving system.

Set to arrive within the next two years, the system will feature a central driver assistance controller (zFAS) which was jointly developed by specialists from TTTech, Mobileye, nVidia and Delphi.

The zFAS will be supplied by Delphi and be powered by an EyeQ3 mobile processor from Mobileye as well as a Tegra K1 processor from nVidia.  All that power will enable the zFAS to quickly compute a complete model of the vehicle's surroundings so they can be used by the various assistance systems.

Audi goes on to say the zFAS is about the size of a tablet but is flexible, scalable and "future-proof in every respect."

Interestingly, Audi also revealed their autonomous driving systems will continuously learn as they drive.  As the company explained, data from the zFAS will be uploaded to the cloud - over an LTE internet connection - where it can be processed "using algorithms for machine learning and artificial intelligence."  Audi says this will enable their autonomous driving system to "continuously extend its capabilities to master even complex situations increasingly better."
