At the company's annual GTC Summit in San Jose, California, Nvidia founder and CEO Jensen Huangannounced a two-server solution that simulates data generated by a self-driving auto and trains a driving algorithm using that data. Autonomous-driving companies have also been using simulators built for gaming to train their algorithms.
Unsafe situations can be scripted in simulation to test the autonomous car's ability to react, without ever putting anyone in harm's way.
Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) announced that it would be halting its self-driving vehicle tests for a moment in order to ensure the safety of people on the road. Nvidia will suspend its autonomous vehicle testing in public roads for a limited time.
The goal, they say, is to create a safer and more scalable method for bringing self-driving cars to the roads - welcome news for many considering the recent pedestrian death that shut down Uber's operation. We are temporarily suspending the testing of our self-driving cars on public roads to learn from the Uber incident.
One of the servers in Nvidia's new Drive Constellation Simulation System, powered by the company's GPUs, runs Nvidia-developed Drive Sim software, which simulates cameras, LIDAR, RADAR - sensors a self-driving vehicle uses to observe its physical environment.
The first server runs NVIDIA DRIVE Sim software to simulate a self-driving vehicle's sensors, such as cameras, lidar and radar.
This "hardware-in-the-loop" cycle, which occurs 30 times a second, is used to validate that algorithms and software running on Pegasus are operating the simulated vehicle correctly.
In the same time, the software was put through 2.7 billion miles of testing in a virtual world, allowing algorithms to be quickly refined and tested against numerous variations of certain tricky real-world or hypothetical scenarios. 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.
"This means you can easily test rare and hard conditions: rainstorms, snowstorms, and sharp glare at different times of the day and night, with different road surfaces and surroundings", the company says.
Huang said DRIVE Constellation with be available in the third quarter of this year.

President Trump claims plenty of good lawyers want to work with him - as two attorneys pulled out of joining his legal team. Trump's lead lawyer, John Dowd , resigned last week and former U.S. attorney Joseph diGenova joined the Trump team .
While initially refusing to leave, Tomshack eventually did leave the residence and was later taken into custody at his own home. Police also arrested two of Chahil's family members and charged them with accessory after the fact to aggravated assault .
I suppose time will only tell, we will update you with any further information regarding the possibility of new maps. Competitors must find the items and form strategies to achieve the mode's main goal- be the last person standing.
The app offered payment in return for users filling out a personality test and Facebook says it was downloaded by 270,000 people. The firm's acting CEO, Alexander Tyler, said Cambridge Analytica was prepared to fully cooperate with the investigation.
Both PUBGand Fortniteare now available on iOS (and Android, in the case of Greene's game). "It grows the genre", Greene added. It's kept separate from the player customization, and players will need to click through to see the different acquired skins.
Brian Acton, the co-founder of WhatsApp, which was acquired by Facebook four years ago for $19 billion, has joined the cause. Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, last week told CNBC that "we know this is an issue of trust".
However, the Cleveland Cavaliers offered his views on the idea, calling it "wack" in a chat with reporters earlier today. Assuming the Cavaliers make the playoffs, LeBron will have a loaded bench and reliable role players surrounding him.
Law enforcement officials asked not to be identified discussing the case because the investigation continues. It's not clear if any of the packages was an actual working explosive device that could have been detonated.
I'm sorry that an inteveiw I did about a minority was used as a weapon against you guys. "It's possible to do both", he said . In the interview, Mike says that he wants his daughter to get a gun after there was a shooting at her college previous year .
The discovery of the warning raises new questions about why Facebook did not act sooner to protect users' private information. The quiz app that Zuckerberg mentions was created by Cambridge researcher Alexsandr Kogan.
