At GTC China, the company introduced a highly advanced software-defined platform, NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Orin, for autonomous vehicles and robots.
Reportedly, the new system-on-a-chip (SoC) Orin, which packs 17 billion transistors, delivers seven times the performance of the company’s previous generation Xavier SoC. The platform is capable of handling numerous applications and deep neural networks that run autonomous vehicles and robots while achieving systematic safety standards, such as ISO 26262 ASIL-D.
Orin will be available in a range of configurations based on a single architecture, aiming auto manufacturers’ 2022 production calendar.
Further, NVIDIA announced that the Chinese mobile transportation company DiDi Chuxing Technology Co. will leverage its GPUs and AI technology to develop autonomous driving and cloud computing solutions.
DiDi will use DRIVE AGX Orin platform to perform inference on Level 4 autonomous driving vehicles. NVIDIA’s latest GPUs will also be used in DiDi’s data centers to train its machine learning algorithms.
In order to boost the platform adoption, NVIDIA is providing the transportation industry with free access to its collection of DRIVE deep neural networks for driverless vehicle development.
What it Holds for NVIDIA
