Volkswagen teams up with NVIDIA to work on automotive AI

If the automotive industry wasn’t so deeply competitive, we might still be riding around in compact cars that could barely put out 50 horsepower. It’s the competition that forced brands to put so much effort into research and development. In most cases, every automotive maker is focused on improving the same technology, and it’s a race to see which ones does it faster or better. In today’s tech-focused world, this often means teaming up with companies outside of the automotive industry. For this reason, Volkswagen has teamed up with NVIDIA to work on AI for future vehicles.

This is where keyless entry with push-button start comes in. Which models have it and how do you use push-button start in your Volkswagen? Here is everything you need to know.
