NVIDIA Opens DRIVE Constellation Platform to Simulation Partners

Autonomous driving is more than just replacing the human driver, it’s about creating an AI driver that’s much safer than a human. According to RAND Corporation, to drive even 20 percent better than a human requires 11 billion miles of validation. That translates to more than 500 years of nonstop driving in the real world with a fleet of 100 cars — an impossible task. Simulation presents a powerful solution to what has been an insurmountable obstacle. By tapping into the virtual world, developers can safely and accurately test and validate autonomous driving hardware and software.
