NVIDIA-powered vehicles on show at Auto Shanghai

A number of NVIDIA Drive Hyperion-powered vehicles will make their debut at the International Automobile Industry Exhibition (Auto Shanghai) this week.

NVIDIA Drive Hyperion is an end-to-end, modular reference architecture for designing autonomous vehicles (AVs). The compute platform is built on the DRIVE Orin system-on-chip (SoC).

The vehicles powered by NVIDIA Drive Orin are:

  • SAIC Motor’s Rising Auto brand’s mid-to-large luxury pure electric sedan F7 (top) and mid-to-large luxury pure electric SUV R7 at the show. Equipped with a swappable battery pack, the F7 has a range of 413 miles.
  • Available for pre-sale, GAC AION’s flagship model Hyper GT is designed to support advanced level 2+ driving capabilities in high-speed environments.
  • XPENG’s all-new P7i ultra-smart coupe and XPENG G9, a super-fast-charging, intelligent SUV, as well as the XPENG G6 coupe SUV that is equipped with its proprietary XNGP intelligent assisted driving system.
  • IM Motors’s flagship LS7 SUV and the L7 sedan that are capable of highway navigation on autopilot.
  • NHuman Horizons’ HiPhi Y SUV that features a wing-door design, a China light-duty vehicle test cycle range of more than 497 miles on a single charge, and an autonomous-driving system.
  • NIO’s family of smart vehicles, including an updated version of its ET7, along with the ES8, EC7, ES7, ES6 and ET5.
  • Li Auto’s L9, L8 Max and L7 Max that feature the Ideal AD Max intelligent-driving system to help the vehicles efficiently process data from high-definition cameras, lidars, millimeter-wave radars, and ultrasonic sensors in real time.
  • Volvo Cars’ all-electric EX90 that comes with a new powertrain and cutting-edge technology to deliver the ultimate in safety and intelligence.
  • Lotus’ first electric Hyper-SUV Lotus Eletre, the first pure electric hypercar Evija, and its last internal combustion engine sports car Emira. The Lotus Eletre is equipped with the cockpit-forward design inspired by Evija and embodies the essence of aesthetics. It features an immersive digital cockpit, long battery range of the Eletre S+ version up to 403 miles and autonomous-driving capabilities.

Pushing boundaries of AV

Desay SV is pushing the boundaries of autonomous-driving performance with its latest solutions for smart cockpit, intelligent driving and connected services. It demonstrated its Drive Orin-based smart cockpit solution, which is part of the ICPAurora Intelligent Centralized Computing Platform, for powering new forms of in-vehicle infotainment, including 3D gaming and Android-based systems.

Baidu Apollo is showcasing its level-2 driver-assisted product Apollo City Driving Max intelligent driving computing unit, featuring a Baidu-developed intelligent-driving domain controller and powered by two NVIDIA Drive Orin SoCs to process camera and lidar sensor data for enhanced safety behind the wheel. The Apollo City Driving Max will be available in volume production to automakers globally in 2023.

Momenta has launched its Mpilot Pro advanced driver-assistance solution that adopts the energy-efficient Drive Orin to meet the computing performance requirements of mainstream mid-range models.
