Hardware for Self-Driving Cars

NVIDIA DRIVE® embedded supercomputing platforms process data from camera, radar, and lidar sensors to perceive the surrounding environment, localize the car to a map, then plan and execute a safe path forward. This AI platform supports autonomous driving, in-cabin functions, and driver monitoring, plus other safety features—all in a compact, energy-efficient package.

NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion

NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion is a production-ready platform for autonomous vehicles. This AV reference architecture accelerates development, testing, and validation by integrating DRIVE Orin™-based AI compute with a complete sensor suite that includes 12 exterior cameras, three interior cameras, nine radars, 12 ultrasonics, and one front-facing lidar, plus one lidar for ground truth data collection. DRIVE Hyperion features the full software stack for autonomous driving (DRIVE AV) as well as driver monitoring and visualization (DRIVE IX), which can be updated over-the-air, adding new features and capabilities throughout the life of the vehicle. It’s also designed to be compatible across generations, so partners can leverage current investments in the DRIVE Orin platform and seamlessly migrate to NVIDIA DRIVE Atlan™ and beyond.

NVIDIA DRIVE Orin

The NVIDIA DRIVE Orin SoC (system-on-a-chip) delivers 254 TOPS (trillion operations per second) and is the central computer for intelligent vehicles. It’s the ideal solution for powering autonomous driving capabilities, confidence views, digital clusters, and AI cockpits. The scalable DRIVE Orin product family lets developers build, scale, and leverage one development investment across an entire fleet, from Level 2+ systems all the way to Level 5 fully autonomous vehicles.

NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Pegasus

NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Pegasus uses the power of two NVIDIA Xavier™ SoCs and two Turing™ GPUs to achieve 320 TOPS of supercompute capability. The platform is designed and built for all types of autonomous systems, including robotaxis.

NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Xavier

NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Xavier delivers 30 TOPS for Level 2+ and Level 3 automated driving. At its core is the first-ever production auto-grade Xavier SoC, which incorporates six different types of processors, including a CPU, GPU, Deep Learning Accelerator (DLA), Programmable Vision Accelerator (PVA), Image Signal Processor (ISP), and stereo/optical flow accelerator.

NVIDIA DRIVE Atlan

Our next-generation NVIDIA DRIVE Atlan SoC will be a data center on wheels, complete with the performance, safety, and security found in data center technology. Atlan is designed to achieve 2x the compute performance of NVIDIA DRIVE Orin and serve as the basis for a safe and secure autonomous vehicle development platform in the future.
