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.
First Chrome OS powered tablet launches ahead of rumoured Apple iPad reveal
The Chromebook Tab will set you back at least US$329 or €329, plus sales tax, and will go on sale in May. What's even crazier is that Apple's new iPad might be even cheaper than the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 .
Brown called heroic for part in segregation case
She later worked as an educational consultant and public speaker. "I played with children that were Spanish-American". According to Linda, her father was concerned about her having to walk so far just to get to a segregated school.
Parkland Survivor Throws Up on Stage, Continues Speech at Protest
In New York, former Beatle Paul McCartney showed up at a march and spoke of the December 1980 murder of his bandmate John Lennon. Add Gun Control as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Gun Control news, video , and analysis from ABC News.
"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.
