  • NVIDIA Unveils AI Computer To Drive Fully Autonomous Robotaxis

That position seemed to grow stronger Tuesday after the company announced a powerful new system called Pegasus, based on its Drive PX platform, that is designed. This enables automakers and tier 1 suppliers to move from development into production for a wide range of self-driving solutions - from AutoCruise on the highway, to AutoChauffeur for point-to-point travel, to Pegasus for a fully autonomous vehicle. The GPGPU approach to self driving is quickly gaining popularity and NVIDIA is one of the few companies on Earth that can scale performance faster than you can make use of it. In an interview with Reuters, Danny Shapiro, the automotive director at NVIDIA, said much of the focus with the first 25 customers using the Drive PX Pegasus semiconductor will be for robotaxis that don't have steering wheels or brake pedals.

The new system, codenamed Pegasus, extends the NVIDIA DRIVE PX AI computing platform to handle Level 5 driverless vehicles. In a press release, the company drew a contrast with some of the automobiles that use its older hardware, saying their trunks often "resemble small data centers".

Saudi Arabia set to curb attempts to finance terrorism

"Driverless cars will enable new ride- and car-sharing services". "The breakthrough AI computing performance and efficiency of Pegasus is crucial for the industry to realize this vision". "The future of society will be reshaped".

Of course, when the platform comes out, we won't see Level 5 vehicles popping up overnight.

Remnants of Nate to bring rain, wind to NJ on Columbus Day
Nate is the fourth major storm to strike the United States in less than two months, following Harvey, Irma and Maria. Another warming trend could be on the way by next weekend , as soon as we lose the onshore easterly ocean breeze.

To reach Level 5 autonomy, DRIVE PX Pegasus is tasked with processing hordes of data from 360-degree cameras, LIDAR, GPS and an array of other sensors in order to keep track of other vehicles, pedestrians, and hazards along its driving route while doing so in a safe and efficient manner.

The Pegasus is created to receive an Automotive Safety Integrity Level D certification, the highest standard of functional safety for road vehicles as defined by the ISO. The shares were up another 2% to $188.72 in midday trading, after touching an all-time high of $192.95 earlier on Tuesday. Under Huang, Nvidia's products harness the ability of graphics chips to perform many simple computing tasks at the same time more rapidly than traditional CPUs to run AI apps. Expected to be available in the second half of next year, Pegasus has already attracted commitments from leading autonomous auto startups, including Zoox, NuTonomy, and Optimus Ride.

Rivers 3 TDs lead Chargers past Giants
