NVIDIA published its Self-Driving Safety Report, which it submitted to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) as part of the safety self-assessment laid out in the agency’s voluntary guidance, "Automated Driving Systems: A Vision for Safety." The report is a look at how NVIDIA develops its autonomous driving technology.
The document presents a view into NVIDIA’s development processes, showing how the company is harnessing graphics processing units (GPUs) to create self-driving systems. Achieving the highest levels of computing allows the incorporation of diversity and redundancy throughout the process, including all aspects, from sensors to processors to algorithms. This ensures multiple lines of defense should a failure occur.
