Gives little to none details
Nvidia’s CEO, the man known for his two hour plus keynotes that tend to become even longer, has announced the company's next generation automotive chip codenamed Orin. Nvidia gave few details about the chip but did mention it is expected to perform similarly to Pegasus.
Professor Xavier sampling now
The automotive industry is very slow to adopt technology and traditionally the life cycle of a car is six years. Every third year the car gets a facelift improvement but generally every six years you can expect a totally new platform. With that in mind, Nvidia Drive Xavier and Pegasus won’t go into production before 2019.
Uber was one of Nvidia's partners
Uber's self-driving woe has extended to its partner GPU maker Nvidia which has suspended self-driving tests across the globe.
Toyota is investing more than $2.8 billion to develop automated driving software.
The great unwashed are not to be trusted
Everyone’s favourite taxi companies, Uber and Lyft, want politicians to stop the great unwashed from owning self-driving cars.
Volta graphics, eight custom cores for automotive
Nvidia CEO announced that Drive Xavier world's first autonomous machine processor is up and running as the silicon got back from the Fab two weeks ago, and of course, it works flawlessly.
Ampere and the gaming GPU
There have been many reports that Nvidia’s next generation technology will be codenamed Ampere and we want to set one thing straight. The successor of Volta is an AI/ML chip and not a GPU - just like Volta never was.
Self-driving Nvidia powered fleet
Uber just ordered up to 24,000 Volvo XX90 self-driving cars for its driverless, hail ride/share - post taxi fleet.
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.
