Conventional ADAS technology can detect some objects, do basic classification, alert the driver of hazardous road conditions, and in some cases, slow or stop the vehicle. This level of ADAS is great for applications like blind spot monitoring, lane change assistance, and forward collision warnings.NVIDIA DRIVE™ PX 2 AI car computers take driver assistance to the next level. They take advantage of deep learning and include a software development kit (SDK) for autonomous driving called DriveWorks. This SDK gives developers a powerful foundation for building applications that leverage computationally intensive algorithms for object detection, map localization, and path planning.
With NVIDIA self-driving car solutions, a vehicle's ADAS can discern a police car from a taxi; an ambulance from a delivery truck; or a parked car from one that is about to pull out into traffic. It can even extend this capability to identify everything from cyclists on the sidewalk to absent-minded pedestrians.
