Virtual Desktops Take the Driver’s Seat at Honda with NVIDIA GRID

If you’re a fan of Honda’s motorsports racing efforts — or own one of the company’s sharp-handling automobiles — you know how nimble the Japanese automaker can be. Honda’s bringing that agility to its growing global engineering and product design team with its Next-gen Engineering Workstation project.

The project moves Honda’s R&D team from physical workstations to a new vehicle design platform that’s more mobile and efficient. To do that, Honda relied on graphics-accelerated virtual desktop infrastructure with NVIDIA GRID and the NVIDIA Tesla M60. Today, Honda’s virtual desktop deployment gives thousands of employees across R&D offices and factories in Japan and the U.S. continuous, no-latency connections to the latest vehicle development data.
