Bosch Announces AI Self-Driving Computer with NVIDIA

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

NVIDIA Partners with Bosch for System Based on Next-Generation DRIVE PX Xavier Platform

Bosch Connected World - Bosch, the world's largest automotive supplier, today announced it is working with NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) to develop artificial intelligence self-driving systems for mass market cars.

Bosch CEO Dr. Volkmar Denner unveiled the collaboration during his keynote address at Bosch Connected World, in Berlin, at Bosch Group's annual Internet of Things conference.

NVIDIA and Bosch are developing an AI self-driving car computer built on NVIDIA's deep learning software and hardware that enables vehicles to be trained on the complexities of driving, operated autonomously and updated over the air with new features and capabilities.

"Self-driving cars is a challenge that can finally be solved with recent breakthroughs in deep learning and artificial intelligence," said Jen-Hsun Huang, founder and CEO, NVIDIA. "Using DRIVE PX AI car computer, Bosch will build automotive-grade systems for the mass production of autonomous cars. Together we will realize a future where autonomous vehicles make mobility safe and accessible to all."

"Automated driving makes roads safer, and artificial intelligence is the key to making that happen," said Denner. "We are making the car smart."

The Bosch AI car computer system will be based on next-generation NVIDIA DRIVE™ PX technology with Xavier, the upcoming AI car superchip, the world's first single-chip processor designed to achieve level-4 autonomous driving. The unprecedented level of performance of Xavier is necessary to handle the massive amount of computation required for the tasks self-driving vehicles must perform. These include running deep neural nets to sense surroundings, understanding the 3D environment, localizing themselves on an HD map, predicting the behavior and position of other objects, as well as computing car dynamics and a safe path forward.

Schneider Electric Intros Micro Data Center Xpress

March 15, 2017

The Micro Data Center (DC) Xpress line of connected products aims to making it faster, easier and more cost effective to build and deploy micro data centres at the network edge. Designed to allow IT equipment to be pre-installed by the customer, partner or integrator before shipment, it features complete data centre physical infrastructure and management software in a single self-contained and secure enclosure.

"In our digitally-connected world, businesses and consumers have a low threshold for interruptions to service. Edge computing solves real-time data transmission issues by bringing bandwidth-intensive content and latency-sensitive applications close to the users or data sources to ensure reliable connectivity," said Chris Hanley, senior vice president, Data Center Systems, Schneider Electric. "As the market evolves, especially around IoT, we are committed to delivering simplified, cost-effective solutions that enable edge technologies."

Reliable, integrated and purpose-built offer

Ideal for edge and IoT applications where deployment speed, reliability and security is paramount, the Micro DC Xpress is certified by leading converged and hyperconverged IT vendors. This permits the customer, partner or integrator to fully populate and test their solution in-house prior to shipping to their regional or local edge sites, thus reducing deployment time and risks.

Micro DC Xpress, available in 24U, 42U and customisable configurations, is prefabricated and tested in Schneider Electric factories, ensuring reliability. The full plug-and-play system can be delivered in just 2-3 weeks, greatly reducing the complexity and cost of traditional deployments.

Utilising Schneider Electric's Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software suite, StruxureWare for Data Centers, and built on the EcoStruxure integrated architecture platform, Micro DC Xpress can be integrated into a customer's larger IT-asset monitoring system or a managed service provider's RMM and remotely managed via the cloud for maximum uptime and connectivity. The solution also includes physical protection capabilities, including key-card functionality to prevent unauthorized access and ensure the safety and security of the environment.

The Micro DC Xpress will be available to order in North America, UK and France in April 2017 and in all of Europe later in 2017.
