Nvidia announces ‘supercomputer’ for self-driving cars at CES 2016

Do you like teraflops? By Dieter Bohn Nvidia is kicking off CES 2016 with its traditional first keynote. CEO Jen-Hsun Huang wasted no time getting to the "punchline," a new computer for cars he's calling the Drive PX2, the follow-up to last year's Drive CX. Nvidia is famous for throwing out big numbers to tout the power of their processors, and many of them were mentioned here on stage. Its processing power is supposedly equivalent to 150 MacBook Pros, all sitting in a computer that's about the size of a lunchbox. It has... [Lire la suite]

Automakers and tech companies must perfect software. Insurance companies have to recalculate premiums. Regulators are thinking up fresh rules. But one part of the puzzle’s been solved: the hardware. The physical elements crucial for seeing and navigating the world have been developed. Some are already in production. And they’re surprisingly cheap. The... [Lire la suite]

2.3 Mpixel automotive image sensor carries ASIL B qualification

ON Semi is seeing a marked increase in the number of image sensors deployed per car in ADAS functions. Its most recent introduction provides, among other features, flicker reduction. This is intended to eliminate, directly at the sensor, the strobing effect that can occur when the image sampling cycle 'beats' with the pulsed waveform driving LED tail-lights in other vehicles, or illuminated speed-limit signs. The sensor also has a high dynamic range, substantially exceeding that of the human eye; and it is also the only sensor in its... [Lire la suite]
