NVIDIA CEO Reveals DRIVE SIM Constellation Autonomous Driving Simulator at GTC 2018

"It's a reminder of how hard [self-driving car] technology is and that it needs to be approached with extreme caution and the best safety technologies", Nvidia said in a statement.

"Ultimately AVs will be far safer than human drivers, so this important work needs to continue". We are temporarily suspending the testing of our self-driving cars on public roads to learn from the Uber incident. Nvidia is now leading the charge in developing technologies for self-driving vehicles, and it's not taking the news of Uber's fatal crash lightly. "Our global fleet of manually driven data collection vehicles continue to operate".

Nvidia has revealed Drive Constellation, a virtual reality autonomous vehicle simulator that aims to hasten development of self-driving software. "This partnership formalizes our use of NVIDIA-based technologies, giving our talented data scientists and engineers greater access to IP and expertise from NVIDIA, but also creating a positive feedback loop that will drive product innovation at both companies".

Constellation relies on two different types of server, one running Drive Sim software to simulate photorealistic data from self-driving vehicles' sensors, such as lidar and cameras.

To no surprise, the simulation is powered by NVIDIA GPUs. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI - the next era of computing - with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world.

He said tablets will be provided to all teachers in government schools to help them keep an online record of students. The budget provides for subsidies to restaurants to replace coal tandoors with electricity- or gas-based tandoors.

It's not yet clear to what degree Nvidia will rely on virtual testing versus real-world testing once its public driving tests resume. As a program member, Think Big Analytics will help clients looking to scale their AI initiatives by working with NVIDIA to optimize deep learning for enterprise use and coordinating go-to-market strategies.

Less than 10 days ago, an Uber self-driving vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian who was walking outside of a crosswalk in Tempe, Arizona.

Alphabet's self-driving auto unit Waymo announced last month that its test vehicles had achieved 5 million self-driven miles since 2009, when the company started the tests.

Uber proactively suspended self-driving operations in all cities following the accident.
