The second contains a powerful NVIDIA DRIVE Pegasus™ AI auto computer that runs the complete autonomous vehicle software stack and processes the simulated data as if it were coming from the sensors of a auto driving on the road.
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.
Drive Constellation allows automakers and other developers to validate and strengthen the technology through billions of driving miles that allow for testing in hard scenarios. "With DRIVE Constellation, we've accomplished that by combining our expertise in visual computing and datacenters". The first server powers the Nvidia DRIVE Sim, a software set that emulates a self-driving car's various sensors, including its cameras, lidar and radar. This happens 30 times a second and validates algorithms to ensure the simulated vehicle is operating correctly.
Nvidia is temporarily suspending its self-driving vehicle tests on public roads worldwide.
Nvidia is best known for providing technology for other companies in sectors ranging from bitcoin mining to self-driving cars, but it also has its own fleet of self-driving cars, used for research and development purposes. Huang said. "It takes a billion miles to experience 770 accidents".
The simulation software generates "photoreal data streams", simulating things like varying weather conditions (rainstorms, snowstorms), blinding glare at different times of day, reduced visibility at nighttime, different terrains and road surfaces.
The company best known for its powerful graphics cards has in recent years waded into the self-driving auto waters, and it now counts over 370 partners in the space.
Drive Constellation will begin rolling out to early access partners in the third quarter. "See the latest breakthroughs in self-driving cars, smart cities, healthcare, big data, high performance computing, virtual reality and more", writes the firm.
"With just 10,000 Constellations we can cover 3 billion miles per year", Huang said.
The chipmaker is testing self-driving technology globally including in New Jersey, Santa Clara, Japan and Germany.
