I wonder what Nvidia chips are used in Audis and BMWs? &nbsp;The video display, perhaps: there's a nifty 3D rendered view of the GPS mapping info in the new BMWs? &nbsp;I don't see a real need for that kind of horsepower in an Engine Control Unit. &nbsp;Maybe in a smart cruise
 control that does station keeping, or in a collision avoidance system. &nbsp;Actually, I don't really see Nvidia being in the &quot;safety critical&quot; space at all.<o:p></o:p></p>
