Nvidia was testing its own autonomous vehicles in Japan, Germany, New Jersey, and California. "DRIVE Constellation for virtually testing and validating will bring us a step closer to the production of self-driving cars".
The Drive Constellation system is a two-server offering intended for simulated trials of autonomous vehicle software.
Automotive is a key focus because Nvidia says its chips are ideal for running image-recognition software needed to turn camera pictures into driving decisions more quickly than the blink of an eye.
"We are proud to be able to combine Penguin Computing's customized, Linux high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities with the latest Volta GPU architecture from NVIDIA and enable data scientists, researchers and engineers to tackle AI and computing challenges that were once impossible", said Tom Coull, CEO at Penguin Computing. The second contains a powerful Nvidia Drive Pegasus AI auto computer that runs the complete autonomous vehicle software stack and processes the simulated data as if it were coming from the sensors of a auto driving on the road.
DRIVE Sim software can simulate different weather such as rainstorms and snowstorms, blinding glare at different times of the day, limited vision at night, and all different types of road surfaces and terrain.
Nvidia has halted its autonomous vehicle test program in the wake of the fatal Uber accident. (NASDAQ:TSLA) and U.S. chipmaker Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) were among the hardest hit in Tuesday's tech sell-off amid fresh concerns over the future of self-driving cars.
Over the previous year, Nvidia's automotive business has grown, with Shapiro highlighting that the company's ecosystem comprises virtually anyone developing something to do with cars, trucks, and delivery vehicles.
"Instead, by doing it in simulation, being able to have GPUs generating sensor data and feeding that back and testing it, our customers will be able to quickly refine their algorithms and accelerate their development".
Huang said Nvidia is dedicating itself to this problem, to make self-driving vehicles the safest option in the future.
The software can simulate glare at sunset, snowstorms, poor road surfaces and risky situations to test the vehicle's ability to react. The agency said it's not clear whether the vehicle's automated control system was active at time of crash.
Today, the company's experience with NVIDIA GPU architectures will be on display as Penguin Computing Senior Director of Advanced Solutions, Kevin Tubbs, Ph.D., speaks at GTC in the session "Best Practices in Designing and Deploying End-to-End HPC and AI Solutions".
Chief Executive Officer Jen-Hsun Huang called the challenge of perfecting self-driving auto systems "probably the hardest computing problem that the world has ever encountered". Nvidia said the Drive Constellation system will be available starting in the third quarter this year.
Huang said the neural network has to be trained with precision, and that requires an end-to-end platform, from data collection by sensors to driving the vehicle.
A fleet of 20 vehicles will rack up about 1 million miles a year, he said.
He said that the USA has 770 accidents per billion miles. That's not enough to capture all of the potential problems that can cause accidents.
