NVIDIA’s invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world. Today, NVIDIA is increasingly known as “the AI computing company.”
NVDIA’s products played a key role in Cepton’s development of the Vista-Edge PEK and its successor, the Helius® Smart Lidar System. Using Jetson™ TX2, Cepton successfully combined lidar sensing with edge computing and advanced perception software to offer real-time, anonymized object detection, tracking and classification. Today, Helius has helped worldwide customers and partners drive intelligent decisions to transform smart cities, smart spaces and beyond.
