Tesla and NVIDIA scoop tech awards

The winners of this year’s Juniper Resarch Future Digital Awards for Technology & Innovation includes Tesla’s Autopilot and the NVIDIA Drive PX ADAS applications.

Listed as winners within the automotive and telematics catagories, Tesla Autopilot took the Best Consumer Award title while NVIDIA’s Drive PX was honoured with the Best Technology/Service Offering.

Tesla Autopilot offers one of the world’s first level three autonomous driving solutions, leveraging a multitude of sensors. Pushed as an OTA firmware update, its commercialisation has brought the industry one step closer to fully autonomous vehicles.

The NVIDIA Drive PX platform combines cloud-based machine learning with on-board multi-core GPU processing for ADAS applications. Offering a form-factor vastly scaled down from existing implementations, integration into vehicles via 21 OEM partners is likely to increase road safety.

The awards identify the cutting-edge applications, technologies and vendors that it believes will galvanise the industry in the years to come.
