Tesla Motors for partnership with NVIDIA Corporation

Tegra® Visual Computing Module (VCM)

Tesla Motors determined that they needed their vehicle electronics to be able to keep up with the speed of improvement in consumer electronics and choose NVIDIA to work with on increasing the computing power of their vehicles. Tesla wanted to have scalable, modular and updatable for all functions including vehicle performance and graphics. Working together Tesla and NVIDIA incorporated the Tegra 3 Visual Computing Module into all Tesla models resulting in the power of a smartphone inside a vehicle that can be updated by pushing the changes to the driver for acceptance.
