NVIDIA just announced its own version of a computer architecture, sensor set, and full-self driving software (in some scenarios), DRIVE Hyperian 8. The company says that DRIVE Hyperian 8 is designed for the highest levels of functional safety and cybersecurity and is available to purchase today for 2024 vehicle models.
NVIDIA noted that the production platform was designed to be modular, which enables customers to use only what they need. The new software was announced at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) where NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang showed a DRIVE Hyperion 8 vehicle driving autonomously from the NVIDIA headquarters in Canta Clara, CA, to Rivermark Plaza in San Jose, CA.
Nvidia added that DRIVE Hyperion is scalable and that its artificial intelligence provides a secure base for autonomous vehicle development.
