Self-driving vehicles will transform the $10 trillion transportation industry, increase accessibility to those with limited mobility, and save countless lives. However, developing autonomous vehicles is one of the biggest technical challenges ever faced. While it is universally accepted that artificial intelligence is required, in order to ensure AVs are safer than human-driven vehicles, developers need to drive millions if not billions of miles to properly train and test them. Now imagine being able to test an autonomous vehicle in a near-infinite variety of conditions and scenarios?before it even reaches the road. Combining photorealistic simulation and AI, NVIDIA is enabling the industry to safely drive billions of miles in virtual reality, creating a safer, more scalable, and more cost-effective way to bring self-driving cars to market.
