NVIDIA details how its Jetson development kit creates smart, seeing cars

By Jon Fingas


Developing a high-end in-car infotainment system can present challenges that don’t exist in other platforms — you’re juggling core car systems, a myriad of sensors and media playback in a testbed on wheels. NVIDIA has just explained how it’s uniting those elements with its new, lengthily-titled Jetson Automotive Development Platform. While it looks like a single-DIN car stereo laid bare, the configurable kit incorporates a Tegra processor (for usual infotainment functions), multiple car-friendly interfaces and a Kepler-based graphics chipset that can power car detection, lane departure and other computer vision systems by using CUDA or OpenCV code. The net effect should be a much simpler development process: automakers can consolidate some of their test hardware in one Jetson unit that they can upgrade or swap out if newer technology comes along. NVIDIA isn’t naming the handful of designers and suppliers that are already building car electronics using Jetson, although history offers a few possible candidates.
