CES 2019: Nvidia unveils AI-powered Drive AutoPilot self-driving platform
NVIDIA today announced the world’s first commercially available Level 2+ automated driving system, NVIDIA DRIVE™ AutoPilot, which integrates multiple breakthrough AI technologies that will enable supervised self-driving vehicles to go into production by next year.
At CES 2019, leading automotive suppliers Continental and ZF announced Level 2+ self-driving solutions based on NVIDIA DRIVE, with production starting in 2020.
As a Level 2+ self-driving solution, NVIDIA DRIVE AutoPilot uniquely provides both world-class autonomous driving perception and a cockpit rich in AI capabilities. Vehicle manufacturers can use it to bring to market sophisticated automated driving features — as well as intelligent cockpit assistance and visualization capabilities — that far surpass today’s ADAS offerings in performance, functionality and road safety.
Nvidia Corp on Monday announced its Drive AutoPilot platform, with artificial intelligence technologies, that can enable the next level of self-driving cars by 2020, further strengthening its position in the industry.
The chipmaker said that German automotive suppliers Continental AG and ZF Friedrichshafen AG will be using the platform in their “level 2+” self-driving systems going into production starting next year.
ZF is also offering for the first time the option of using a chip made by rival Xilinx along with Nvidia.
The level 2+ autonomous vehicles would add greater automation capabilities such as highway merge, lane change, lane splits and personal mapping to the existing advanced driver assist systems (ADAS).
