Following the accident, Uber suspended all self-driving vehicle tests in North America.
DGX-2 is the latest addition to the NVIDIA DGX product portfolio, which consists of three systems created to help data scientists quickly develop, test, deploy and scale new deep learning models and innovations.
The updates to NVIDIA's deep learning and HPC software stack are available at no charge to its developer community, which now totals more than 820,000 registered users, compared with about 480,000 a year ago.
Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) announces the Drive Constellation system for running self-driving vehicle simulations.
Uber's modified Volvo XC90 fleet reportedly used Nvidia's Drive platform to handle computing tasks for the autonomous driving system.
Uber suspended North American tests of its self-driving vehicles after the accident.
"We're able to deploy this in the cloud and scale it up to generate billions of miles that ultimately will be able to showcase and statistically show how ... these self-driving algorithms" perform, Danny Shapiro, Nvidia's senior director, automotive, said in a phone briefing with reporters.
The simulation server is powered by NVIDIA GPUs, each generating a stream of simulated sensor data, which feed into the DRIVE Pegasus for processing. "With virtual simulation, we can increase the robustness of our algorithms by testing billions of miles of custom scenarios and rare corner (edge) cases, all in a fraction of the time and cost it would take to do so on physical roads". It can simulate a rainstorm, or bright sunlight at different times of the day, or complete darkness. The agency said it's not clear whether the vehicle's automated control system was active at time of crash. We are temporarily suspending the testing of our self-driving cars on public roads to learn from the Uber incident.
Certain statements in this press release including, but not limited to, statements as to: the benefits, impact, performance, uses and abilities of NVIDIA DRIVE Constellation, NVIDIA DRIVE Sim software and NVIDIA DRIVE Pegasus AI; and the availability of NVIDIA DRIVE Constellation are forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause results to be materially different than expectations. "NVIDIA's end-to-end platform is the right approach". Nvidia is now leading the charge in developing technologies for self-driving vehicles, and it's not taking the news of Uber's fatal crash lightly.
The testing may be taking place in a virtual environment, but it's happening on the same hardware and software that would be found in a self-driving auto, Nvidia's Danny Shapiro explained in a briefing.
Over 370 companies developing self-driving tech already use Nvidia's Drive platform that serves as the backbone for Constellation.
The $150 million production took a so so $28 million in its opening 3 days, while Black Panther fell to $16.6 million. It was overcome by the arrival of Pacific Rim: Uprising which won the weekend earning $28 million.
It need be mentioned that Air India launched its first flight to Israel to be allowed to cross Saudi airspace . Israel's airline El Al, excluded from the Saudi route, says its Indian competitor now has an unfair advantage.
After testing the film, 20th Century Fox has elected to bring the film back into production ahead of its release. Fox allegedly wants nearly 50% of the film to be reshot, and the addition of one or two new major characters.
