Fast INT8 Inference for Autonomous Vehicles with TensorRT 3

Autonomous driving demands safety, and a high-performance computing solution to process sensor data with extreme accuracy. Researchers and developers creating deep neural networks (DNNs) for self driving must optimize their networks to ensure low-latency inference and energy efficiency. Thanks to a new Python API in NVIDIA TensorRT, this process just became easier … Read more

Training AI for Self-Driving Vehicles: The Challenge of Scale

Modern deep neural networks, such as those used in self-driving vehicles, require a mind boggling amount of computational power. Today a single computer, like NVIDIA DGX-1, can achieve computational performance on par with the world’s biggest supercomputers in the year 2010 (“Top 500”, 2010). Even though this technological advance is unprecedented, it is being dwarfed … Read more

Speed to Safety: Autonomous RC Car Aids Emergency Evacuation

By Abhinav Ayalur, Isaac Wilcove, Lynn Dang, Ricky Avina The alarm is ringing. You smell smoke and see people running for the exit, but you don’t do the same. Why? Because you’re the fire marshal. As the fire circles, you have the responsibility of making sure everyone gets out safely before you can save yourself … Read more

AI Co-Pilot: RNNs for Dynamic Facial Analysis

NVIDIA AI Co-Pilot combines deep learning and visual computing to enable augmented driving — using sensor data from a microphone inside the car, and interior/exterior cameras to track the environment around the driver … Read more
