Nvidia’s DRIVE PX2 Shows Next-Gen 6-Core Tegra, Pascal GPU

Prototype implementation of NVIDIA DRIVE PX2 self-driving system: 250W cooling system, two Tegras, two Pascal-based GPGPUs.

At the 2016 GPU Technology Conference, Nvidia hosted a packed session with at least 1,000 people in attendance. The topic was a deep dive into the DRIVE PX2, autonomous drive development kit which will start shipping later this year in its full performance capability – as the current units are only being shipped with Maxwell-class GPUs to Tier 1 customers. Hosted by Shri Sundaram, the session actually gave a very good insight not just into how DRIVE PX 2 works, but also what is Nvidia bringing to the market in the second half of the year, in the form of two new 16nm FinFET processors, Pascal-based Tegra and

We Viewed the VUE, an Electric Car Concept

he VUE (Vehicle Urbain Electrique) came to CES from the French Province of Quebec, Canada. It is the result of collaboration between the software company Elektrobit (EB) and senior students at the Universite de Sherbrooke. The students took a wrecked 2006 Smart Fortwo Coupe and switched the thermal engine powertrain to an electrical powertrain. They basically gutted its working parts and replaced its inners with electric-car-oriented equipment. EB was instrumental in the process. The company offers an extensive range of standard software products and professional tools that support the whole process of in-car software development.Elektrobit gave the university a license to develop the interface. Eleven
