NVIDIA shows cloud-based self-driving car simulator

Over at its GPU Technology Conference, NVIDIA showcased a new simulator that enables companies to test self-driving car technology in virtual reality. Called the NVIDIA DRIVE Constellation, this system consists of two servers. One server simulates a vehicle's sensors, while the other server runs the car's software to process the simulated data.

Via the simulator, companies can get data from 300,000 miles of driving in a mere five hours. Besides making it possible to cover more miles much more quickly, the simulator also makes it easier to test how a self-driving car algorithm will perform in tricky scenarios.
The technology is designed to allow automakers and others to validate their technology on billions of driving miles and increase the strength of their algorithms by repeatedly testing difficult scenarios, which would be impractical in the real world.

The software can simulate glare at sunset, snowstorms, poor road surfaces and dangerous situations to test the vehicle’s ability to react.
