Nvidia also said its first Xavier processors would be delivered to customers this quarter. These "mobility-as-a-service" fleets-a system VW Group is now developing-will initially include smaller self-driving vehicles that people can hail as well as larger vans.
Bets that Nvidia will become a leader in chips for driverless cars, data centers and artificial intelligence have more than doubled its stock price in the past 12 months, making the Silicon Valley company the third-strongest perfomer in the S&P 500 during that time. "Autonomous driving, zero tailpipe emission mobility and digital networking are virtually impossible without advances in AI and deep learning". The company unveiled the chip back in 2016 and now it is shipping out to customers. Two Xavier chipsets form part of a larger Nvidia platform for AI and self-driving, dubbed Pegasus.
Watch this JMU receiver make a HELMET CATCH in the FCS Championship
North Dakota State was able to run the clock out, and secure their sixth FCS Championship in the last seven seasons. Shepherd caught the ball in stride and he broke free from the James Madison secondary and raced into the end zone.
According to Tech Crunch, "Nvidia will power artificial intelligence technology built into its future vehicles, including the new I.D. Buzz, its all-electric retro-inspired camper van concept".
Uber uses the computer technology of the Nvidia GPU from its first test vehicle - the Volvo SC90.
NVIDIA has previously teamed up with the likes of Tesla and China's Baidu. 320 partners are now developing with Nvidia Drive - Nvidia's hardware and software platform for autonomous vehicles.
The Drive X platform takes data from a range of sensors stored inside and outside the auto to enable "intelligent co-pilot", a feature that will increasingly be integrated into new cars in the future. Such a combination of raw processing power and conservative energy use is said to make it a top candidate for consumer-ready autonomous driving solutions, with NVIDIA also being quick to boast about its other features such as a wide variety of supported connectors meant to make the chip more versatile in regards to third-party sensor compatibility.
