By CBR Staff Writer

Nvidia has announced Drive CX, a digital cockpit for cars based upon the company’s X1 processor along with DRIVE PX, an image processing platform for self driving cars.

The Drive CX will include an advanced visual computing architecture capable of power up to 16.6 megapixels on multiple displays, which according to Nvidia is 10-times the number present in currently available cars.

Nvidia Co-Founder Jen-Hsun also showcased the capability of NVIDIA DRIVE CX cockpit computer to run the next-generation digital instrument clusters and infotainment systems inside the car.

The company also unveiled Nvidia DRIVE PX, an image processing platform that can be used to build self-driving cars.

DRIVE PX is powered by Tegra X1 processors and will take inputs for 12 high-resolution cameras, which will facilitate drivers to search for open spots in crowded garages and manouvre into a space with an expert series of turns.

NVIDIA PX will guide the car out of the parking space and bring it back to the driver with a brush of a button, the company claimed.

The company said that with its NVIDIA DRIVE Studio software, designers will be able to create digital cockpits with features including navigation and infotainment and Surround Vision which will provide drivers with a top-down 360-degree view of the car.
