What is DRIVE Software?
NVIDIA DRIVE Software is a software package used for developing autonomous vehicles. DRIVE Software contains modular SDKs (DriveWorks, DRIVE IX), System Software (DRIVE OS), Reference application (DRIVE AV Roadrunner) and developer tools.
What is DRIVE OS?
NVIDIA DRIVE™ OS is a foundational software stack consisting of an embedded Real Time OS (RTOS), hypervisor, NVIDIA® CUDA® libraries, NVIDIA Tensor RT™, and other modules that give you access to the hardware engines. DRIVE OS offers a safe and secure execution environment for applications such as secure boot, security services, firewall, and over-the-air updates. Plus, it offers a real-time environment with an RTOS and a hypervisor for Quality of Service (QoS). The RTOS, AUTOSAR, and hypervisor are ASIL-D components.
What is DriveWorks?
NVIDIA® DriveWorks is an SDK that consists of a library of software modules, sample applications and tools to enable software development for autonomous vehicles. DriveWorks leverages the computing power of the DRIVE AGX platforms and is designed to be open, modular and compliant with automotive industry software standards such as ISO26262 and MISRA-C. DriveWorks can be downloaded as part of the DRIVE Software releases.
What is DRIVE IX?
NVIDIA DRIVE™ IX is an SDK used for developing in vehicle applications for safety, comfort and enhancing the user experience. For more information on how to get started, refer to our DRIVE IX developer page.
Where can I buy a DRIVE AGX Developer Kit?
The DRIVE AGX Developer Kit is available exclusively for members of the NVIDIA DRIVE Developer Program for DRIVE AGX. Your company or university must have current legal agreements on file. Please contact your NVIDIA Representative (or contact us) to ensure necessary agreements have been signed before requesting to join the program. Users may only join with a corporate or university email address.
How can I get started with the DRIVE AGX DevKit?
Congratulations for getting your NVIDIA DRIVE AGX DevKit! The Onboarding Guide for NVIDIA DRIVE AGX DevKit provides an overview of all resources relevant to help you start your development.
Where can I find the list of DRIVE AGX compatible sensors and other peripherals?
The DRIVE AGX Platforms are compatible with a number of sensors and peripherals from different vendors. A full list is available on the DRIVE Ecosystem Hardware and Software Components.
What are the differences between the DRIVE AGX and the Jetson AGX Developer Kits?
While both the Jetson AGX and DRIVE AGX kits use the same Xavier SoC, DRIVE is built for automotive applications. The following table highlights the differences between the two platforms.
