Nvidia Shares Jump As It Debuts Computer For Self-Driving Cars

Above A DHL self-driving

Right now, getting a auto up to Level 5 requires a lot of battery power and a lot of on-board electronics, including a mini data center sitting in the trunk. "The new Nvidia Drive PX Pegasus shows the path to production for the automakers, startups and automotive ecosystem working to deliver this fantastic vision". Pegasus has 16 inputs for devices like camera, radar, ultrasonic, and lidar (laser scanner) sensors; and data can flow through the system at up to one terabyte per second.

To develop these AI delivery vehicles, DPDHL has already configured its data center with the NVIDIA DGX-1™ AI supercomputer for training its neural networks.

The third generation of NVIDIA's Drive PX automotive line, code-named Pegasus, are chips the size of vehicle licence plates with datacenter-class processing power.

The next entry in the Drive PX line is codenamed Pegasus, and it represents a huge increase in power over current Drive PX hardware.

Sheriff Lombardo said Paddock had been "living a secret life, much of which would never be fully understood". Las Vegas killer Stephen Paddock's brother once threatened to kill a friend in California, TMZ reported .

Pegasus is remarkable not only for the amount of power it can deliver, but also for its ability to make driverless vehicles more energy efficient.

Nvidia plans to start shipping Pegasus units in the second half of 2018. During a presentation in Munich, NVIDIA Chief Executive Jensen Huang said the semiconductor enables so-called Level 5 driverless vehicles, which means the cars and trucks can operate without any intervention from a human.

Plus, it must be legal for these vehicles to be used in autonomous mode on public streets, and they will also need to undergo trials. From concept to reality The development brings the era of self-driving cars a step closer to reality.

It will include several chips, including Nvidia's next-generation GPU, which is due out next year, plus artificial intelligence software, in a package that the company boasts is the "size of a license plate" - a huge reduction from the massive racks of computers required today. Copies of reports filed with the SEC are posted on the company's website and are available from NVIDIA without charge.
