At CES, tier 1 auto supplier ZF just launched ProAI, a self driving production system that uses the drive PX 2 AI computing platform given by NVIDIA. Last year at CES, drive PX 2 was announced with the company describing the in-car compute platform as a supercomputer in a kids lunch box”. It is an unmatched processing size and power. Computing the power around 150 MacBook Pros it is roughly equivalent to PX 2 as noted by NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun Huang at the present time.
ProAi, ZF’s product is a primary utilization of Drive PX 2 in a production system and utilization of Nvidia’s AutoCruise setup of the stage, which utilizes only one Parker system-on-a-chip. ProAi is targeting on organizations doing self-driving vehicles and trucks, additionally modern cars like forklifts. The way to these is AI, as indicated by NVIDIA, which is the reason it`s stage seemed well and good to ZF. ZF Pro Ai’s structure likewise utilizes vehicle-to-everything (V2X) correspondence, so it can impart information to associated foundation as well as with different autos, and even accomplish what ZF calls “swarm intelligence” permitting autos or vehicles associated with each other to learn as a gathering as opposed to adapting to challenges independently.
ProAi will take in LiDAR, radar, multiple cameras and ultrasonic sensors to inform its AI based understanding of the driving conditions it faces and make a contingency for it. Automotive grade certification of the platform along with ZF will be done and it plans to start bring up the production being live in the year 2018
