Level 5, fully autonomous robotaxi
Not even a full year after it announced the Drive PX 2 , Nvidia has just announced a much more powerful self driving platform that is targeting robo-taxies or the world, in other words companies like Uber, Lift and the like.
Will take some time
Fudzilla has already mentioned Jim Keller, the hardware engineer that was one of the key people for finishing what was considered to be the overambitious AMD Zen CPU project. Keller now works for Tesla, and our well-informed friends confirmed that he is building a self-driving platform for the company.
Self-driving car based on game
In the future, if you are wondering why your Waymo self-driving car is driving is driving erratically and keeps stopping in front of prostitutes, it might be because its software was trained using Grand Theft Auto V.
Gets Audi too
Who would have thought that people who are covering computer graphics would start writing about the automotive industry. Each car of the future is going to get a self-driving ADAS system, powered by a SoC that is wrapped around a strong CPU and GPU. Nvidia announced at CES 2017 that it just scored both Mercedes and Audi automotive deals.
Did not mention how
Fruity cargo-cult Apple has written to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration claiming that it is still interested in making self-driving cars.
Mercedes and Lumen system integrator
The Mercedes S550 plug in hybrid is the first car to commercially comes with Qualcomm Halo wireless car charger. Fudzilla saw a demo of this technology back in May 2015 and it sounded more than promising.
There is no laying down your life for anyone
Carmaker Mercedes-Benz has decided that if it comes to a choice between drivers and pedestrians it will choose the side which paid rather a lot of money for one of its products.
It will leave connectivity to others
Jensen sparked our imagination by mentioning that a self-driving car will have a SoC or a small computer inside a car that will essentially talk with the cloud, and share the information with the system.
Created with automotives in mind
Danny Shapiro, Nvidia's Senior Director of Automotives, has revealed a few details about the "Parker", Nvidia’s Newest SOC for Autonomous Vehicles.
Ends in a divorce
Tesla just ended its long term relations with Israeli based Mobileye. This comes as a rather sudden and unexpected shock as Mobileye is the company behind Tesla’s now very famous autopilot.
