Toyota Teams with Silicon Valley Tech Giant

Silicon Valley chipmaker NVIDIA used its annual GPU Technology Conference to announce a partnership with Toyota that will see the automaker use NVIDIA’s sophisticated Drive PX AI (artificial intelligence) car computer in its future self-driving vehicles. The Drive PX system is a compact, lightweight unit capable of delivering 30 trillion “deep learning” calculations per second, according to Jensen Huang, chief executive officer and founder of NVIDIA. He said it is an ideal brain for next-gen transport modules thanks to its ability to read, assess and appropriately respond to a near-infinite number of real-world driving situations. Huang added: “The development of a self-driving car is one of the greatest technical challenges that’s ever been tackled.”
