NVIDIA paves the way for tomorrow’s vehicles …

January 13, 2015

Bringing the world closer to a future with autopilot vehicles that see and understand everything around them, NVIDIA today introduced NVIDIA DRIVE automotive computers, equipped with powerful computer vision capabilities, deep learning and advanced in-cab display.

NVIDIA will offer two vehicle computers: NVIDIA DRIVE PX, to develop autopilot capabilities, and NVIDIA DRIVE CX, to create the most advanced digital cockpit systems. These in-vehicle automotive computers are based on the same architecture used in today’s most powerful supercomputers.

“Mobile supercomputing will be critical to the vehicle of tomorrow, with its vast array of cameras and displays,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO and one of the founders of NVIDIA. “Very soon, vehicles will be able not only to ‘see’ objects, but also to understand the situation around them and automatically react accordingly. They will drive and park themselves ”.

“NVIDIA DRIVE will enable revolutionary advancements in vehicle safety and comfort by putting computer vision, deep learning and advanced graphics capabilities at the service of every driver.”


The NVIDIA DRIVE PX Autopilot Development Platform provides the technical foundation for entirely new feature-rich vehicles, largely taking advantage of recent advancements in computer vision and deep learning.

DRIVE PX includes two NVIDIA Tegra X1 mobile super chips, built on the latest NVIDIA Maxwell GPU architecture and with more than a teraflop of processing power, delivering more power than the world’s fastest supercomputer 15 years ago. years. DRIVE PX also has inputs for up to 12 high-resolution cameras.

Its computer vision resources can allow vehicles to find a parking space and park themselves, without any human intervention. Although current systems offer assisted parallel parking at a specific point, NVIDIA DRIVE PX can allow a vehicle to discover open spaces in a crowded parking lot, park autonomously, and then pick up its driver again when calling from a smartphone.

The deep learning resources in DRIVE PX make it possible for a car to differentiate between different types of vehicles, for example, to distinguish an ambulance from a delivery van, a police car from a common sedan, or a parked vehicle from one that is within walking distance. about to merge into traffic. Consequently, an autonomous vehicle can understand and react to the nuances of every situation, just as a human driver would.
