A vehicle supercomputer the size of a license plate
2017 - PACE Award Winner
What: In-Car Artificial Intelligence Supercomputer
Innovation: It is no bigger than a license plate, but NVIDIA's new autonomous driving control system, DRIVE PX 2, is capable of processing 24 trillion operations a second as it monitors a 360-degree view of a drive. It also uses deep learning to continually respond to driving conditions, a key step toward vehicle autonomy.

Judge's Citation: Today's development of self - driving cars are predominantly computer vision-based, which has limitations. Therefore, there is need for technology to pull in other sensors besides cameras, like LIDAR, radar, and ultra-sonic. Also, tackling the infinite permutations that a driver needs to react to is a very complex programming challenge. NVIDIA has introduced the DRIVE PX 2 as the 1st In-Car Artificial Intelligence (AI) Supercomputer which can tackle these challenges.
DRIVE PX2 uses Deep Learning (AI) and advanced Graphics Programming for 360 degree situational awareness. It provides an open development platform with processing power equivalent to 150 MacBook Pros, in the size of a license plate. It delivers 24 trillion operations per second.
