MIT Simulation Uses NVIDIA RTX Technology

Drone pilots are getting their flying skills put to the test with FlightGoggles, a simulation powered by NVIDIA RTX technology that delivers a virtual race course inside a photorealistic environment. Competitors from around the world are participating in the AlphaPilot Challenge, an open challenge to develop an NVIDIA Jetson-powered AI framework for high-speed autonomous racing drones. For the upcoming race, over 1,000 contestants registered and organized into more than 300 teams.
