NVIDIA DRIVE PX

Scalable AI Supercomputer For Autonomous Driving

THE AI CAR COMPUTER FOR AUTONOMOUS DRIVING

NVIDIA DRIVE™ PX is the open AI car computing platform that enables automakers and tier 1 suppliers to accelerate production of automated and autonomous vehicles. It scales from a palm-sized, energy efficient module for AutoCruise capabilities, to a powerful AI supercomputer capable of autonomous driving.

DRIVE PX can understand in real-time what's happening around the vehicle, precisely locate itself on an HD map, and plan a safe path forward. It's the world's most advanced self-driving car platform—combining deep learning, sensor fusion, and surround vision to change the driving experience.

The scalable 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 two mobile processors and two discrete GPUs delivering 24 trillion deep learning operations per second. Multiple DRIVE PX platforms can be used in parallel to enable fully autonomous driving.

With a unified architecture, deep neural networks can be trained on a system in the data center, and then deployed in the car.

SENSOR FUSION

DRIVE PX 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 (DNN) for the detection and classification of objects dramatically increases the accuracy of the resulting 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 datacentre, and then deployed in the car. NVIDIA DGX Systems can reduce neural network training in the data centre from months to just days. The resulting neural net model runs in real-time on DRIVE PX inside the vehicle.

NVIDIA DRIVE SOFTWARE

NVIDIA DRIVE Platform Software supports developing autonomous applications on DRIVE PX hardware. 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

NVIDIA DRIVE IX software coupled with DRIVE PX hardware make the ideal AI assistant. Together, they leverage sensor data from the microphone and cameras, both inside and outside the car, 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 DRIVE PX AI supercomputer in the car, coupled with NVIDIA Tesla GPUs in the data centre, to create highly detailed maps.
