Nvidia Aims To Power Flying Vehicles with Jetson TX1 Board

The Jetsons, that space-age cartoon family, have finally arrived, complete with flying vehicles. Well, actually it’s Nvidia’s Jetson TX1 module [pictured], designed to allow drones to fly autonomously without the need for human operators, that has arrived. The credit-card-size module, which debuted yesterday, aims to bring the power of machine learning to UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), robots, and other smart devices. The potential for the platform is considerable. If Nvidia’s claims are accurate, the Jetson TX1 will allow autonomous vehicles to navigate through forests for search and rescue missions, scan crowds for suspicious activity, and tailor their behaviors to users’ preferences.Big Step in Autonomous Capabilities The company said that the Jetson TX1 is designed to process deep neural networks, allowing it to recognize objects and interpret information . The embedded…
