The software specialist NVIDIA has now presented a chip under the name Nvidia Drive Atlan a chip for use in autonomous cars. The high performance chip is provided as part of a system that works with artificial intelligence. It can process a computing power of up to 1,000 tops (Trillion Operations by Second, German trillion computing operations per second).

The NVIDIA processor installed in today's cars and commercial vehicles makes 30 of these tops possible. The successor Nvidia Drive Orin with 254 Tops has already been ordered from some manufacturers for production starts in 2022. The evolutionary stage presented is likely to be used from 2025.

An Autopilot engineer told California regulators Tesla may not achieve Level 5 autonomy, despite what CEO Elon Musk predicted in January.The admission comes from a document of exchanges dated May 6 between the California Department of Motor Vehicles and CJ Moore, an Autopilot engineer working for Tesla, released via the legal transparency group PlainSite. "Tesla indicated that Elon is extrapolating on the rates of improvement when speaking about [Level 5] capabilities," part of the memo from the DMV read. "Tesla couldn't say if the rate of improvement would make it to L5 by end of calendar year.
