DRIVE Hyperion

NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion™ is an AV development platform and reference architecture for developing Level 2+ and Level 3 highway autonomous solutions. It consists of a complete sensor suite that’s tuned, optimized, and safety-certified, as well as a high-performance AI computing platform—DRIVE AGX.

NVIDIA DRIVE AGX™ Developer Kit provides the hardware, software, and sample applications needed for the development of production-level AVs. The DRIVE AGX system is built on production-ready, auto-grade silicon and engineered with security in mind, featuring an open software framework.

DRIVE Hyperion is designed with additional compute power to offload data recording and replay, plus improve overall data processing efficiency.

This end-to-end (E2E) platform can be integrated into test vehicle fleets, enabling developers to build, evaluate, and validate self-driving technology at scale.

NVIDIA DRIVE Sim for deploying self-driving vehicles in a safe, scalable, and cost-effective way.

NVIDIA DRIVE Sim™ uses high-fidelity and physically accurate simulation to create a safe, scalable, and cost-effective way to deploy self-driving vehicles. It taps into NVIDIA’s core technologies, including NVIDIA RTX™, Omniverse™, and AI to deliver a powerful, cloud-based computing platform capable of generating a wide range of real-world scenarios for AV development and validation. DRIVE Replicator can generate datasets to train the vehicle’s perception system or test the decision-making process. It can also be connected to any AV stack in software-in-the-loop (SIL) or hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) configurations to test system integration using DRIVE Constellation.
