NVIDIA Develops Supercomputer for Self-Driving Cars

NVIDIA unveiled an artificial-intelligence supercomputer for self-driving cars.


In a pre-CES keynote in Las Vegas, NVIDIA's CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said the onboard processing needs of future automobiles far exceeds the silicon capabilities currently on the market.

NVIDIA's DRIVE PX 2 will pack the processing equivalent of 150 MacBook Pros -- 8 teraflops of power -- enough to process data from multiple sensors in real time, providing 360-degree detection of lanes, vehicles, pedestrians, signs, etc. The design will use the company's next gen Tegra processors plus two discrete, Pascal-based GPUs. NVIDIA is also developing a suite of software tools, libraries and modules to accelerate the development and testing of autonomous vehicles.

Volvo will be the first company to deploy the DRIVE PX 2. A public test of 100 autonomous cars using this technology is planned for Gothenburg, Sweden.
