Nvidia unveils new solutions for AI at CES. The announcements cover the Nvidia Omniverse platform and self-driving vehicles.
Nvidia Omniverse is a cloud-based virtual collaboration and simulation platform. It allows developers to design realistic simulations. Think of simulations for self-driving vehicle scenarios and training opportunities for robotic applications.
The updates to Nvidia Omniverse make the platform generally available to GeForce Studio creators with RTX GPUs. For example, the Omniverse Nucleus Cloud solution simplifies sharing large Omniverse 3D scenes. Creatives can now collaborate from anywhere in the world without having to move large data sets.
Support for various 3D marketplaces and digital asset libraries has also been extended to make it easier to build scenes. To this end, the Omniverse Launcher provides access to dedicated Omniverse assets for TurboSquid by Shutterstock, CGTrader, Sketchfab and Twinbru. ActorCore, Daz3D and PlantCatalog are also coming soon with Omniverse-specific assets.
Nvidia Drive Orin SoC Platform.
Furthermore, Nvidia is going to further expand its services for self-driving vehicles. To this end, the redundant Nvidia Drive Orin system-on-a-chip is announced within the DRIVE Hyperion 8 portfolio. Also, the portfolio now features 12 surround cameras, nine radars, 12 ultrasonic sensors, a forward-facing LIDAR and three interior cameras. According to the manufacturer, the system for self-driving cars is fail-proof
Collaborations with car manufacturers, including Volvo’s Polestar, have also been announced for this purpose. Other automotive companies have announced that they will develop vehicles and other solutions based on the Nvidia Drive Orin SoC platform.
