NVIDIA Jetson TX1 Brings Supercomputer Performance To Autonomous Drones, Vehicles

The TX1 has 256 graphics cores to process images so that your “plastic pals who are fun to be with” can recognize objects and avoid collisions using “deep-learning” algorithms and image processing engines, Clayton said. The TX1 kit includes an uncased board with all major components on it. It’s the size of a credit card but has a 1 teraflop of horsepower. “Jetson TX1 will enable a new generation of incredibly capable autonomous devices”, said Deepu Talla, vice president and general manager of the Tegra business at NVIDIA. “They will navigate on their own, recognize objects and faces, and become increasingly intelligent through machine learning”. The pocket-sized supercomputer is equipped with a 64-bit ARM A57 processor that is supported by a one teraflops, 256-core Maxwell architecture-based graphics processor, offering best-in-class…
