A centralized real-time Advanced Driver Assistance System based on smartphones

A centralized real-time Advanced Driver Assistance System based on smartphones This work leverages the wide diffusion of smartphones andexisting cellular network to implement a centralized, real-time, AdvancedDriver Assistance System. Each vehicle is equipped with a smartphonethat periodically computes and sends vehicle’s global position and speedthrough GPRS or UMTS network. The centralized server snaps all run-ning vehicles into digital maps and implements safety algorithms to de-tect potential dangerous situations. The... [Lire la suite]

Nvidia launches Tegra X1, bringing deep neural learning to self-driving cars

Move over, Tegra K1, you’re already obsolete. At a Sunday night press conference, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang launched a new mobile superchip, the Tegra X1. If Nvidia has its way, the X1 will be the graphics and artificial intelligence engine for the car of tomorrow. The Tegra X1 includes a 256-core “Maxwell” CPU, the same architecture that Nvidia launched last February. Maxwell powers the GTX 980 and GTX 970 chips that the company launched this fall. But the new X1 also includes an 8-core, 64-bit Denver CPU. All told, the new... [Lire la suite]
