The SMART Autonomous Self Driving Vehicle is a collaborative project between the Singapore MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) and NUS.
The research aim of the vehicle is to provide 'mobility on demand' to supplement the existing transport system. The vehicle uses a variety of sensors to guide itself along the road and to react to obstacles, other vehicles and most importantly, pedestrians.

Toyota already testing the GPS guided auto drive vehicle and tested on public road.

What is this to compared.

This is the same car that was revealed a few months ago right?

The speed it is supposed to travel at this moment is 10km/h?

NVIDIA has just announced its next-generation Drive PX driving supercomputer and it is codenamed Pegasus.

According to NVIDIA, Pegasus is the world's first AI computer to deliver fully autonomous driving (SAE Level 5). This means all aspects of driving are handled solely by the car.

This will enable automakers to build cars without steering wheels, pedals, or mirrors, thereby maximizing space. NVIDIA envisions a future where the interior of cars resemble living rooms and offices.

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang said:

“Creating a fully self-driving car is one of society’s most important endeavors - and one of the most challenging to deliver. Our breakthrough achievement in building an AI supercomputer of unprecedented efficiency and performance makes that vision possible."

 

NVIDIA says that over 25 companies are already developing fully autonomous vehicles using its Drive PX platform, but that their trunks are filled with computers because of the massive computing performance required. This makes them impractical for production vehicle and NVIDIA wants to change that with Pegasus.

Pegasus will take up roughly the same amount of space as a license plate but will deliver over 320 trillion operations per second. That's over 13 times more than what its predecessor - Drive PX 2 - was capable of.

Pegasus will be powered by two Xavier SoC processors alongside two next-generation discrete GPU processors

In addition, Pegasus meets ASIL D certification and features an array of automotive inputs and outputs including CAN, Flexray, and 16 high-speed sensors for camera, LIDAR, and ultrasound. It also has multiple 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectors.

According to NVIDIA, total memory bandwidth of the platform exceeds 1TB per second.

Pegasus will be available to automotive partners by the middle of 2018.

And so it has begun

 

Uber is the new Skynet?

hmm...  there is a test driver behind the wheel, what's the test driver doing when the accident about to happen? Sleeping?

Everybody is in "that tech" race to go autonomous..... Big companies get lots of funding/ grants to do R&D.... all the big boys are jostling for the piece of the pie/ action  

 

Uber??  Why uber allowed to put their driverless car on the street where the other high tech company yet to do so?

oh after reading the report, someone was behind the wheel when this happen but it was on self drive mode. Was he testing the car to see if it would stop on its own when approaching a pedestrian? 

 

"Oops sorry it didn't stop by itself!"   <_<

Dont know if its considered  "freak" or what now too

 

Even our trains also can accident one (despite having a driver too) and lucky just only overshot the station.... maybe must have been on whatsapp
