Nvidia’s autonomous car brain packs power of ‘150 MacBook Pros’

Nvidia has detailed its next-generation Drive PX 2 brain for autonomous production vehicles. The advanced hardware has been developed with a focus on artificial intelligence and ‘deep learning’ principles, allowing the system to quickly monitor sensor data and compute the best trajectory.”Drivers deal with an infinitely complex world,” observes Nvidia co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang. “Modern artificial intelligence and GPU breakthroughs enable us to finally tackle the daunting challenges of self-driving cars.”The executive claims GPU-based hardware will eventually be capable of achieving ‘superhuman’ levels of situational awareness. The PX 2 brings a significant jump in processing power, equivalent to that of “150 MacBook Pros” and 10 times greater than the previous-generation product.The lunchbox-size computer requires liquid cooling to chill its two discrete Tegra GPUs, capable of running 24 trillion ‘deep…
