At the center of the Self-Driving Car Research Studio, the QCar, is an open-architecture scaled model vehicle, powered with NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX2 supercomputer, and equipped with a wide range of sensors, cameras, encoders, and user-expandable IO.
Relying on a set of software tools including Simulink®, Python™, TensorFlow, and ROS, the studio enables researchers to build high-level applications and reconfigure low-level processes that are supported by pre-built modules and libraries. Using these building blocks, you can explore topics such as machine learning and artificial intelligence training, augmented/mixed reality, smart transportation, multi-vehicle scenarios and traffic management, cooperative autonomy, navigation, mapping and control, and more.
