NVIDIA Announces DRIVE System For Autonomous Vehicles

28 March 2018

The company best known for its powerful graphics cards has in recent years waded into the self-driving auto waters, and it now counts over 370 partners in the space.

At the chipmaker's annual developer conference here Tuesday, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said the company has developed a virtual simulation platform for manufacturers to test self-driving technology.

But following a fatal accident last week in which an Uber self-driving vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian while in autonomous driving mode, Nvidia is suspending its testing. We are temporarily suspending the testing of our self-driving cars on public roads to learn from the Uber incident.

Nvidia suggested that the accident was a reminder of the challenges facing the development of self-driving technology, and has reaffirmed the company's approach of "extreme caution" and "the best safety technologies".

An aide to Healey said she already meant to join a multi-state lawsuit, led by the NY attorney general Eric Schneiderman. Democratic lawmakers had been bracing for the decision, making a point to question Ross during congressional hearings.

The simulation platform follows Nvidia's statement that it was temporarily halting its self-driving vehicle tests following the fatal Uber crash last week.

"This tragedy is exactly why we've committed ourselves to perfecting this life-saving technology".

Over 370 companies developing self-driving tech already use Nvidia's Drive platform that serves as the backbone for Constellation. "Our global fleet of manually driven data collection vehicles continue to operate", said the Nvidia spokesperson in a statement. Nvidia had been testing its autonomous driving technology in New Jersey, California, Japan and Germany.

Nvidia is working on self-driving cars of its own, as well, since some of its customers want the hardware maker to provide all the components necessary for them to create an autonomous vehicle. The second contains a powerful NVIDIA DRIVE Pegasus™ AI auto computer that runs the complete autonomous vehicle software stack and processes the simulated data as if it were coming from the sensors of a auto driving on the road.

The BJP candidates were Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, party's national general secretary Anil Jain, Spokesperson G.V.L. RJD's newly elected Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Jha also tweeted, saying Mayawati has "spoken her mind" for opposition unity.

To no surprise, the simulation is powered by NVIDIA GPUs.

Uber proactively suspended self-driving operations in all cities following the accident. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI - the next era of computing - with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world.

Testing may not involve putting self-driving cars on public streets, with all the safety issues that entails, but virtual environments aren't real ones, no matter how authentic the simulations seem.
