Nvidia Shows Off New AI Computer For Baidu's Self-Driving Car

#artificialintelligence

U.S. chipmaker Nvidia nvda showed off on Monday a smaller and more efficient artificial intelligence computer for self-driving cars, saying it would power Baidu's bidu mapping and autonomous vehicle technology. Chinese web services company Baidu will deploy Nvidia's new Drive PX 2 as its in-vehicle car computer for its self-driving system, Nvidia said in a press release as it unveiled the computer at the GPU Technology Conference in Beijing. As more carmakers develop plans for self-driving technology to roll out in their vehicles in the next decade or less, Nvidia is trying to lower the barriers to entry, providing powerful computers to help automakers enter the market. Earlier this month, Nvidia and Baidu announced a partnership to develop a full self-driving car architecture from the cloud to the vehicle using both companies' expertise in artificial intelligence (AI). Nvidia said its new Drive PX 2 computer uses 10 watts of power and is half the size of the original version, launched in January.


Baidu and Nvidia to Build Artificial Intelligence Platform for Self-Driving Cars

Chinese search engine Baidu and chipmaker Nvidia announced a partnership Thursday that will focus on using artificial intelligence to develop a computing platform for self-driving cars. The platform will include cloud-based high-definition maps. The announcement, made by Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang at the Baidu World Conference, will bring together two companies that see vast potential in artificial intelligence. It also comes on the heels of Baidu receiving approval from the California Department of Motor Vehicle to test autonomous vehicles on public roads in the state. Baidu bidu is the 15th company to receive a permit to test autonomous vehicles in California.

NVIDIA Unveils Palm-Sized, Energy-Efficient AI Computer for Self-Driving Cars

#artificialintelligence

BEIJING, CHINA - GPU Technology Conference China -- NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today unveiled a palm-sized, energy-efficient artificial intelligence (AI) computer that automakers can use to power automated and autonomous vehicles for driving and mapping. The new single-processor configuration of the NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 AI computing platform for AutoCruise functions -- which include highway automated driving and HD mapping -- consumes just 10 watts of power and enables vehicles to use deep neural networks to process data from multiple cameras and sensors. It will be deployed by China's Baidu as the in-vehicle car computer for its self-driving cloud-to-car system. DRIVE PX 2 enables automakers and their tier 1 suppliers to accelerate production of automated and autonomous vehicles. A car using the small form-factor DRIVE PX 2 for AutoCruise can understand in real time what is happening around it, precisely locate itself on an HD map and plan a safe path forward.
