US: Committed to developing a system that will make the possibility of fully autonomous cars a reality, Nvidia has introduced its new in-car computer, the Drive PX 2, at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016. Equipped with 12 video cameras, LiDAR, radar and ultrasonic sensors, the PX 2 acts as the ‘brain’ for self-driven cars. According to the company, Px 2 has the ‘most powerful engine’ introduced in the field of artificial intelligence. To add more punch to its performance, Nvidia has added 12 CPU cores and eight teraflops of processing in the computer. The Drive PX 2 is capable of 24 trillion deep-learning operations per second and packs the processing prowess for deep learning equivalent to that of 150 MacBook Pros.
Volvo has recently shown interest in Nvidia’s PX 2 and plans to supply the powerful in-vehicle artificial intelligence for its own autonomous driving testing.
