Nvidia Reveals Details to its Autonomous Driving Chip

Nvidia Corporation has taken the wraps off its latest mobile processor that will be used to power automotive applications such as self-driving cars and digital cockpits. Dubbed Parker, the system-on-chip (SoC) includes features important to autonomous driving, such as deep learning, hardware-level virtualization for design integration, hardware-based safety engine for fault detection, and error processing and IO ports for automotive integration. Built on Nvidia’s Pascal GPU architecture and its next-generation Denver CPU architecture, Parker delivers up to 1.5 teraflops of performance for deep learning-based, self-driving artificial intelligence. The Nvidia Drive PX2 platform includes two Parker processors and two Pascal architecture-based GPUs for deep-learning applications.
