NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion is taking software-defined car architectures to the following degree.
At his GTC keynote, NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang introduced DRIVE Hyperion 9, the following era of the open platform for automated and autonomous autos. The programmable structure, slated for 2026 manufacturing autos, is constructed on a number of DRIVE Atlan computer systems to realize clever driving and in-cabin performance.
DRIVE Hyperion is designed to be suitable throughout generations, with the identical pc kind issue and NVIDIA DriveWorks APIs. Companions can leverage present investments within the DRIVE Orin platform and seamlessly migrate to NVIDIA DRIVE Atlan and past.
The platform consists of the pc structure, sensor set and full NVIDIA DRIVE Chauffeur and Concierge purposes. It’s designed to be open and modular, so prospects can choose what they want. Present-generation methods scale from NCAP to degree three driving and degree four parking with superior AI cockpit capabilities.
DRIVE Hyperion incorporates redundancy into the structure’s compute.
With the DRIVE Atlan SoC, the next-generation platform will function greater than double the efficiency of the present DRIVE Orin-based structure on the identical energy envelope. This compute is able to dealing with degree four autonomous driving, in addition to the comfort and security options supplied by NVIDIA DRIVE Concierge.
DRIVE Atlan is a technical marvel for secure and safe AI computing, fusing all of NVIDIA’s applied sciences in AI, automotive, robotics, security and BlueField knowledge facilities.
Leveraging NVIDIA’s high-performance GPU structure, Arm CPU cores and deep studying and pc imaginative and prescient accelerators, it supplies ample compute horsepower for redundant and numerous deep neural networks and leaves headroom for builders to proceed including options and enhancements.
DRIVE Hyperion is the nervous system of the car, and DRIVE Atlan serves because the mind.
With DRIVE Atlan’s compute efficiency, DRIVE Hyperion 9 can course of much more sensor knowledge because the automobile drives, enhancing redundancy and variety.
This upgraded sensor suite consists of encompass imaging radar, enhanced cameras with increased body charges, two further aspect lidar and improved undercarriage sensing with higher digicam and ultrasonic placement.
In whole, the DRIVE Hyperion 9 structure consists of 14 cameras, 9 radars, three lidars and 20 ultrasonics for automated and autonomous driving, in addition to three cameras and one radar for inside occupant sensing.
By incorporating a wealthy sensor set and high-performance compute, the whole system is architected to the best ranges of useful security and cybersecurity.
DRIVE Hyperion 9 will start manufacturing in 2026, giving the business steady entry to the leading edge in AI expertise because it begins to roll out extra clever transportation.
