NVIDIA brought a pair of new computers targeted at the automotive market to CES, the DRIVE PX and DRIVE CX. The computers are "equipped with powerful capabilities for computer vision, deep learning and advanced cockpit visualization." The DRIVE PX is targeted at the development of auto-pilot capabilities through the use of computer vision. Powered by a pair of Tegra X1 chips, the DRIVE PX is capable of processing up to 1.3 gigapixels per second from up to 12 high resolution cameras. One feature of the DRIVE PX is Auto-Valet, which enables a car to park itself in a crowded garage and later return to the driver. It also has the ability to learn the differences between different types of cars such as police cars, ambulances, and regular vehicles. The DRIVE CX is targeted at "navigation, infotainment, digital instrument clusters and driver monitoring," and also carries the ability to give a full 360 degree view of the car, eliminating blind spots. NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said, "Whether finding their way back to you from a parking spot or using situational awareness to keep out of harm's way, future cars will do many amazing, seemingly intelligent things." The computers have an expected availability of the second quarter of this year.
