NVIDIA offers an end-to-end mapping system for self-driving cars, designed to help automakers, map companies and startups rapidly create HD maps and keep them updated. This process, which used to take weeks, can now happen in near real-time. For automotive developers, the same architecture used to create maps and keep them up-to-date can also enable self-driving cars.
The end-to-end system is highly customisable, incorporating both an in-vehicle AI supercomputer, and a cloud component based on Tesla GPUs. For automotive developers, this same architecture used to create maps and keep them up-to-date ultimately enables self-driving cars to operate safer.
