(Reuters) – Nvidia Corp said on Tuesday China’s Chery Automobile Co [CHERY.UL] would use its self-driving technology that it has developed with Baidu and ZF Friedrichshafen AG [ZFF.UL].

Chery will be the first Chinese carmaker to adopt the new system, Nvidia said. (http://bit.ly/2EOUx89)

Chinese internet search firm Baidu and German auto supplier ZF had selected Nvidia Drive for their autonomous vehicle computing platform development in China, Nvidia Chief Executive Jensen Huang said last week.

Nvidia already has partnerships in the autonomous vehicle industry with companies such as Tesla.

Nvidia, traditionally a maker of graphics chips for PCs, has been expanding its reach to newer technologies such as self-driving cars.
