NVIDIA-Powered Cars Unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show

Celebrities, palm trees and beaches help make Los Angeles an iconic city. But what really makes it special is its love for cars. Every year, tens of thousands attend the Los Angeles Auto Show to get a glimpse of what they’ll be ogling on Sunset Boulevard in the coming year. Today, the show opens to the public (and runs through Nov. 27), but we managed to get a sneak preview to see the cars آ— and the technology trends آ— that are powered by NVIDIA.

In between the main halls of the Los Angeles Convention Center, you’ll find the Tesla Motors exhibit. Tesla’s Model S and Model X are on display, with the latter towing a polished Airstream trailer. A month ago, Tesla Motors announced that all its vehicles آ— Model S, Model X and the upcoming Model 3 آ—آ will be equipped with an on-board supercomputer and sensors that are capable of fully autonomous operation. This next-generation autopilot system is powered by the NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 AI computing platform and will get smarter and more capable over time via software updates.
