    I stumbled on couple recent videos where NVIDIA demo's Drive PX2 self driving capabilities. The software used in the videos may not be what Tesla end up using but the presenter mentioned about the DriveWorks SDK for autonomous driving from NVIDIA which Tesla may or not leverage in their own Visions group.

    I am not sure if this has been posted here or not but search didn't show up results. I posted this in Model 3 forum because that's where I usually roam, mods please relocate if appropriate.

    The one think about the Driveworks UI and something similar solves the problem of trying to figure out what the AI is doing/thinking.

    This means the chances of a HUD in Model 3 just went down drastically.

    Not sure I would agree with that. Where would that UI be displayed? It would be entirely distracting on a center screen.

    Will that allow you to upgrade your Tesla to Nvidia cameras and CPU / spinal cord?

    Are these videos the same DriveWorks Nvidia system that the OP posted?

    Yup. No way that's displayed on the center console. Questionable that they'd put it on the steering wheel. They've already said "no binnacle" so that eliminates the Model S/X steering wheel area dash. So what's really left other than some type of HUD? And you DON'T need to put all of that info on the display. I personally don't want all of that info. It'd be distracting and for tech-illiterate drivers (not me) it'd be completely confusing.

    What part would be confusing to people though... I mean when he switched it to autonomous mode it just displayed a 3D representation of what the system believes is outside the car (Second video 1:54). Even a child would understand what's going on.

    Thanks for posting. Can't wait to see this technology incorporated into a production car.

    Put a natural language processing engine so that we can talk to the cars-- Hal, did you see that chicken cross the road? Hal, Dave I am infallible at detecting chicken crossings.
