CES 2016: Nvidia brings artificial intelligence into cars

Tech giant Nvidia has launched a new ‘in-car supercomputer’ at CES 2016 called Drive PX 2 that uses artificial intelligence to tackle the complexities of making truly self-driving cars work. Offering 360-degree situational awareness, Nvidia says the highly advanced GPU (graphics processing unit) benefits from advances both in supercomputing and deep learning. We are leveraging these,” said Nvidia co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, “to create the brain of future autonomous vehicles that will be continuously alert, and eventually achieve superhuman levels of situational awareness. The Drive PX2 can process inputs from 12 video cameras, lidar, radar and ultrasonic sensors, all at once. It then blends them to identify objects, work out where the car is relative to everything around it, and then calculate the exact driving route. It can carry…
