Audi's plans to build AI-powered autonomous vehicles may have taken center stage during NVIDIA's CES press conference, but it's not the only automaker working with the company. NVIDIA announced it's building smart vehicles with Mercedes-Benz too. "Mercedes-Benz and NVIDIA share a common vision of the AI car," NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said in a statement. "At this point, it is clear AI will revolutionize the future of automobiles."

The two companies have been working together for about three years now, and their product is almost ready to hit the market. According to Mercedes-Benz' Sajjad Khan, its first NVIDIA AI-enabled vehicle should be ready within a year -- which should beat Audi's planned Level 4 autonomous vehicle to market by a wide measure.
