Car as ‘Computing Device’: Mercedes-Benz and Nvidia Team to Build Software-defined Vehicles for 2024

Nvidia and Mercedes-Benz today said they plan to create an in-vehicle computing system and AI infrastructure for 2024 Mercedes-Benz vehicles equipped with “upgradable automated driving functions.” The resulting cars and trucks will be capable of automated address-to-address driving of regular routes, such as commutes and repeat deliveries, according to the companies.

NVIDIA Provides Transportation Industry Access to its DNNs for Autonomous Vehicles

Today NVIDIA announced that it will provide the transportation industry with access to its NVIDIA DRIVE deep neural networks (DNNs) for autonomous vehicle development. “NVIDIA DRIVE has become a de facto standard for AV development, used broadly by automakers, truck manufacturers, robotaxi companies, software companies and universities. Now, NVIDIA is providing access of its pre-trained AI models and training code to AV developers. Using a suite of NVIDIA AI tools, the ecosystem can freely extend and customize the models to increase the robustness and capabilities of their self-driving systems.”

NVIDIA Unveils Advanced, Software-Defined Platform for Autonomous Machines

Today NVIDIA introduced NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Orin, a highly advanced software-defined platform for autonomous vehicles and robots. “The platform is powered by a new system-on-a-chip (SoC) called Orin, which consists of 17 billion transistors and is the result of billions of dollars in R&D investment over a four-year period. The Orin SoC integrates NVIDIA’s next-generation GPU architecture and Arm Hercules CPU cores, as well as new deep learning and computer vision accelerators that, in aggregate, deliver 200 trillion operations per second—nearly 7x the performance of NVIDIA’s previous generation Xavier SoC.”
