Autonomous driving requires a hefty amount of computer power in order to operate to its fullest -- and safest -- potential, so the new Nvidia 'Drive PX 2' in-car computer helps add necessary processing power. Featuring the processing power of roughly 150 MacBooks as a comparison, the Nvidia 'Drive PX 2' in-car computer allows for 360-degree situational awareness to keep the entire environment around a vehicle accounted for.

Set to be used by Volvo in 100 XC90s next year as part of the 'Drive Me' autonomous vehicle pilot project, the Nvidia 'Drive PX 2' in-car computer has deep learning capabilities to process trillions of information points every second. What's best, the system is more attuned to keeping up with inclement weather conditions like rain and snow.
