DHL signs up to autonomous delivery driving trial

Above Nvidia Pegasus car

More than 225 partners already use the company's chips for autonomous vehicles, including Tesla Inc., which relies on the Drive PX 2 module to power its Autopilot feature. The first mass deployment of self-driving cars will likely involve shared vehicles that could supplant both taxi services and current ride-sharing services that rely on human drivers.

Koetzle added that the earliest estimate she's seen for level 5 autonomous vehicles operating on the roads is 2025 in the UK.

The new Pegasus, which combines four powerful processors in a device the size of a license plate, can complete 320 trillion operations per second, 10 times the performance of Nvidia's prior generation of self-driving vehicle computer. The chip can run over 320 trillion operations each second, roughly comparable to the AI performance of a 100-server data centre. The idea is to make vehicular travel a more relaxing and stress-free experience, as passengers are coddled in interiors that would more closely resemble your living room as opposed to a typical vehicle.

"Creating a fully self-driving vehicle is one of society's most important endeavors-and one of the most challenging to deliver", Huang said in an address on Tuesday at the GPU Technology Conference in Munich, Germany. NVIDIA wants to help with that, introducing its third-generation Drive PX platform at GTC Europe 2017 today. "The future of society will be reshaped", he says.

Nvidia has revealed its latest autonomous auto super computer, which it says packs the power to make truly self-driving cars - with no steering wheel or pedals - a reality.

Pegasus is slated for a mid-2018 release as well, so it'll be a while before we begin seeing it pop up in level 5 prototypes.

Pegasus is designed for ASIL D certification - the industry's highest safety level - with automotive inputs/outputs, including CAN (controller area network), Flexray, 16 dedicated high-speed sensor inputs for camera, radar, lidar and ultrasonics, plus multiple 10Gbit Ethernet connectors.

Nvidia shares were up 3.7%, near 192.20, in premarket trading on the stock market today.

NVIDIA has revealed that more than 25 of its partners are working on fully autonomous taxis so they will certainly check out the company's latest computer.
