Cognata, founded in 2016 and based in central Israel, develops a system capable of simulating various situations a self-driving car may encounter within a specific city. The system is meant to reduce the time and resources required for testing the vehicles in real-life situations. The company raised $23.5 million to date.
In June, Cognata announced a partnership with Autonomous Intelligent Driving GmbH (AID), a Munich-based subsidiary of German automaker Audi AG, to test its autonomous vehicles.
The collaboration between Nvidia and Cognata will help "accelerate the safe deployment of autonomous vehicles," Zvi Greenstein, a general manager at Nvidia, said in a statement.
Also on Tuesday, Nvidia announced an agreement for technological and business collaborations with Israel-based big data management startup Iguazio Systems Ltd.
