A number of self-driving cars sporting NVIDIA’s autonomous driving technologies were present at GPU Technology Conference in San Jose this week. However, none was available for a test drive — a sensible move by NVIDIA in the light of the fatal Uber self-driving car accident the week before.
A 49-year-old woman has become the first pedestrian to be killed by an autonomous vehicle.
Honda has signed a long-term agreement to develop autonomous cars with SenseTime, a China artificial intelligence (AI) company.
The partnership will leverage Honda’s vehicle control system with SenseTime’s AI algorithms to jointly create an autonomous driving solution. The two companies will also work together on robot technology.
“Safety is the number one priority when it comes to driving, and it also constitutes the core of our autonomous driving solution. By combining SenseTime’s strengths in computer vision technologies with Honda’s superior vehicle control technologies, we will together enable a safe and pleasant autonomous driving experience.,” said Lao Shihong, CEO of SenseTime Japan.
NVIDIA will unveil new technology for self-driving cars at CES, which will kick off in Las Vegas this week.
Jen Hsun-Huang, CEO of NVIDIA will be hosting a press conference on January 5, 10am Singapore time. Catch the live webcast on the NVIDIA blog.
