At CES in January, the company announced that it was partnering with Uber on its autonomous vehicle tests.
Arguments that the algorithm driving the Uber self-driving vehicle that struck and killed a pedestrian in Arizona this month may not have been at fault did not matter to Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, when he took away the company's ability to continue testing the technology in the state Monday, calling the incident "an unquestionable failure".
Nvidia is temporarily pausing its self-driving auto tests on public roads.
Nvidia suggested that the accident was a reminder of the challenges facing the development of self-driving technology, and has reaffirmed the company's approach of "extreme caution" and "the best safety technologies".
The decision comes following the fatal Uber crash in Arizona, which may not have been caused by the self-driving technology, but still yielded some pause from other self-driving vehicle makers.
NVIDIA today introduced a cloud-based system for testing autonomous vehicles using photorealistic simulation - creating a safer, more scalable method for bringing self-driving cars to the roads.
Yankees' Bird to see foot specialist
This spring, Bird was batting.154 (8 for 52) with two extra-base hits and 16 strikeouts in 18 games. The Yankees haven't had a regular first baseman since Mark Teixeira left following the 2016 season.
Spring notes: Bird scratched with sore foot
Bird has been out of form in spring training, batting just.154 with one homer and 16 strikeouts in 52 at-bats. Teixeira spent time at Yankees camp in Tampa this spring and said he didn't notice Bird nursing anything.
The Mystery Of The 'Actress Who Bit Beyonce In The Face'
This included biting Beyonce , prompting the pop star to storm away, grab Jay-Z and head to the back of the room. Cool and classy Beyonce responded by saying, " Tiffany , no". "The bitch is on drugs", Beyonce said.
"This tragedy is exactly why we've committed ourselves to perfecting this life-saving technology". The on-demand vehicle pooling company is just one of many tech giants that uses Nvidia's computing platform to power its fleet of self-driving cars. Nvidia is now leading the charge in developing technologies for self-driving vehicles, and it's not taking the news of Uber's fatal crash lightly.
"Ultimately AVs will be far safer than human drivers, so this important work needs to continue". The second server contains the NVIDIA DRIVE Pegasus AI auto computer that runs the entire software stack in an autonomous driving vehicle.
To no surprise, the simulation is powered by NVIDIA GPUs.
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.
Last week, Toyota also halted its self-driving auto testing. Earlier today, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey suspended Uber's ability to test and operate self-driving cars on public roads in the state.
Testing may not involve putting self-driving cars on public streets, with all the safety issues that entails, but virtual environments aren't real ones, no matter how authentic the simulations seem.
