Innovative software is at the heart of the NVIDIA DRIVE platform, helping both the vehicle and the driver better perceive and respond to their environment.

The latest version of the scalable NVIDIA DRIVE Software suite integrates both the DRIVE AV and DRIVE IX software stacks. With surround perception and highly accurate localization within the DRIVE AV stack, it’s the first to deliver DRIVE AutoPilot features such as supervised self-driving on the highway including adaptive cruise control and lane keeping. Also new in DRIVE Software 8.0 is the ability to use augmented reality to show the driver a visualization of surrounding environment as sensed by the vehicle and its planned route, as well as detailed visualization of the DRIVE IX driver-monitoring system.

DRIVE AV Safety Force Field

NVIDIA Safety Force Field is a computational defensive driving policy developed to shield autonomous vehicles from collisions.


With the industry-leading compute performance enabled by DRIVE hardware, the NVIDIA DRIVE AV software stack powers functions necessary for full autonomous driving, from perception, to localization, to path planning.


The NVIDIA DRIVE IX intelligent experience software development kit enables the development of AI assistants for both drivers and passengers. It uses data from sensors tracking the driver and the surrounding environment to keep drivers alert, anticipate passengers’ needs, and provide insightful visualizations of every journey.
