NVIDIA DRIVE

Scalable AI Platform for Autonomous Driving

WORLD’S FIRST FUNCTIONALLY SAFE AI SELF-DRIVING PLATFORM

NVIDIA DRIVE is the AI platform that enables automakers, truck makers, tier 1 suppliers, and startups to accelerate production of automated and autonomous vehicles. The platform architecture allows our partners to build and deploy self-driving cars, trucks and shuttles that are functionally safe and can be certified to international safety standards.

The architecture is available in a variety of configurations. These range from one passively cooled mobile processor operating at 10 watts, to a multi-chip configuration with four high performance AI processors — delivering 320 trillion deep learning operations per second (TOPS) — that enable Level 5 autonomous driving.

The NVIDIA DRIVE platform combines deep learning, sensor fusion, and surround vision to change the driving experience. It is capable of understanding in real-time what's happening around the vehicle, precisely locating itself on an HD map, and planning a safe path forward. Designed around a diverse and redundant system architecture, the platform is built to support ASIL-D, the highest level of automotive functional safety.

SENSOR FUSION

NVIDIA DRIVE systems can fuse data from multiple cameras, as well as lidar, radar, and ultrasonic sensors. This allows algorithms to accurately understand the full 360-degree environment around the car to produce a robust representation, including static and dynamic objects. Use of deep neural networks for the detection and classification of objects dramatically increases the accuracy of the fused sensor data.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND DEEP LEARNING

NVIDIA AI platforms are built around deep learning. With a unified architecture, deep neural networks can be trained on a system in the datacenter, and then deployed in the car. NVIDIA DGX Systems can reduce neural network training in the data center from months to just days. The resulting neural net model runs in real-time on DRIVE hardware inside the vehicle.

NVIDIA DRIVE SOFTWARE

The DRIVE platform software enables our partners to develop applications to accelerate production of automated and autonomous vehicles. It contains software libraries, frameworks and source packages that developers and researchers can use to optimize, validate and deploy their work.

NVIDIA DRIVE IX SOFTWARE

The NVIDIA DRIVE IX software development kit (SDK) enables AI assistants for both drivers and passengers, using sensors inside and outside the car. DRIVE IX leverages data from the microphone and cameras to track the environment around the driver. Even when the car isn't driving itself, it is looking out for you.

END-TO-END HD MAPPING

NVIDIA offers an end-to-end mapping technology for self-driving cars, designed to help automakers, map companies, and startups rapidly create HD maps and keep them updated. This state-of-the-art technology uses an NVIDIA AI supercomputer in the car, coupled with NVIDIA Tesla GPUs in the data center, to create highly detailed maps.
