The Consumer Electronics Show kicks off tomorrow, and Nvidia has already gotten things moving (so to speak) by revealing its automated driving technology.

During its press event yesterday evening, Nvidia CEO Jen-Shun Huang unveiled the company’s new Drive PX 2 supercomputing platform, which delivers a whopping amount of power (about the equivalent of 150 Macbook Pros) and promises to improve the self-driving system as car manufacturers come to know it.

The company already has one partner on board with the technology, Volvo. The automaker has partnered to include Drive PX 2 with its 100 XC90 luxury SUVs, enabling cars to drive around automatically through the manufacturer’s hometown of Gothenburg. Nvidia’s self-driving tech will also feature sensors, enabling a 360-degree view of the environment around the car and its passengers. “The rear-view mirror is history,” Huang confidently stated.

It indicated that an estimated 93 percent of car crashes are caused by human error, resulting in the death of 1.3 million drivers each year. It also stated that many American teenagers die from these accidents, with texting being the main cause.

Productivity has also been brought into question, as Americans waste 5.5 billion hours of time each year in traffic, which estimates to $121 billion, according to Texas A&M’s Urban Mobility Report. With the Drive PX 2, Nvidia hopes to change that. Along with self-driving, the technology will also present the largest “infotainment” system to date within vehicles, utilizing a medium-sized horizontal screen and a tall vertical one to provide details on a drive. Nvidia’s blog details the assets that the Drive PX 2 is built around, as well as how its “deep learning” system could help car manufacturers improve consumer safety with future models.

Does this mean all consumers will be hopping on board It’s simply a question of price and convenience now, and whether they can put their trust into an autonomous system. 

That won’t stop companies from pressing forward with auto tech at this year’s CES event. Along with Nvidia, a number of other exhibitors will be showing off the latest in the field. Ford will have something involving its Smart Mobility project at the show, focusing on more flexible transportation models. Faraday Future could have another battery-driven vehicle on display, while Chevrolet’s new electric Bolt EV is also likely to get attention.
