NVIDIA paced Las Vegas to announce their “Supercomputer For Cars” NVIDIA Drive PX 2, equipped with no less than 12 cores divided into 8-core Cortex-A57 with four cores Denver, all supported by Pascal graphics and manufactured under a 16nm FinFET lithography getting power shed of 8 TFLOPS with a consumption of 250W, which will be cooled by a water cooling system of closed circuit.
NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 Supercomputer for Cars With Pascal
The NVIDIA Drive PX 2 is designed for deployment in Self-driving cars, so it will be the brain of the vehicle and so far has no jurisdiction, since it treated the artificial intelligence system of a vehicle more powerful in the world. Thanks to advanced Pascal GPU which will allow the vehicle to map in 360 positions to determine precisely where the car and calculate distance and trajectory safely, all this is possible due to the processing power for 24 Trillion Deep Learning Operations per Second, which is equivalent to almost 150 MacBook Pro. Unfortunately, it will not be available until the fourth quarter of 2016.
Self-driving cars use a broad spectrum of sensors to understand their surroundings. DRIVE PX 2 can process the inputs of 12 video cameras, plus lidar, radar and ultrasonic sensors. It fuses them to accurately detect objects, identify them, determine where the car is relative to the world around it, and then calculate its optimal path for safe travel.
