NVIDIA launches Drive AutoPilot for vehicles at CES 2019

09 January 2019 2

At CES 2019, NVIDIA announced the very first commercially available Level 2 automated driving system. The technology is called AutoPilot and as the name implies, it adds automated driving assistance functions to vehicles. NVIDIA has kept the doors to its technology opened for all automakers. Do bear in mind that this isn’t a full self-driving platform but rather a driver assistance one, offering functionality including highway merge, lane change, lane split, and even parking assist.

One of the highlight features of AutoPilot is its ability to add personal mapping to vehicles. This always the system to memories the path you have taken and create a self-driving route even if no map is available. This technology is apart for NVIDIA’s Xavier system-on-a-chip which is the company’s drive platform for vehicles. Xavier is an extremely power efficient platform, consuming just 30 watts while being able to perform 30 trillion operations per second. The platform has been created particularly for AI car applications.

An Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study published in August 2018 revealed existing Level 2 ADAS system as inconsistent and unreliable since it at times provides poor detection. NVIDIA claims that its AutoPilot addresses and resolves these problems.
