Infrastructure for Self-Driving Cars

NVIDIA DRIVE® Infrastructure encompasses the complete data center hardware, software, and workflows needed to develop autonomous driving technology—from raw data collection through validation. It provides the end-to-end building blocks required for neural network development, training and validation, replay, and testing in simulation.

Safer Driving Begins In The Data Center

Accelerate Training with AI Computing

High-performance, energy-efficient AI computing infrastructure is required to develop autonomous vehicles. The key to success is optimizing the data load for training and operating these vehicles without compromising safety. The more information that cars can gather and process, the faster and better AI can learn and make decisions.

Virtual Test Fleets In The Cloud

Virtual Test Fleets in the Cloud


It’s impossible for an autonomous vehicle to encounter every possible traffic situation while testing on public roads. In NVIDIA DRIVE Sim™, virtual vehicle fleets can drive millions of miles in a broad range of scenarios—from routine driving to rare or even dangerous situations—with greater efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and safety than in the real world. The high-fidelity platform can also generate synthetic physically based sensor and ground truth data to tailor scenarios to any development need.

NVIDIA OVX server image


NVIDIA OVX Server is designed to run DRIVE Sim with the complex sensor architectures necessary for autonomous driving. OVX combines high-performance compute and GPU-accelerated graphics with high-speed storage access, low-latency networking, and precision timing to provide the performance required for scalable software-in-the-loop (SIL) AV simulation.

DRIVE Constellation

NVIDIA DRIVE Constellation™ pairs an OVX Server with an additional server containing the in-vehicle compute for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation. The entire system is designed to run in the data center at scale.  It runs NVIDIA DRIVE Sim in real time and tests the software on the same hardware used in the vehicle to support bit- and timing-accurate AV validation.
