NVIDIA Achieves Security Milestones With DRIVE Hyperion Autonomous Car Platform


Greater than 50 automotive corporations world wide have deployed over 800 autonomous check autos powered by the NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion automotive compute structure, which has just lately achieved new security milestones.

The newest NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion structure relies on the DRIVE Orin system-on-a-chip (SoC). Many NVIDIA DRIVE processes, in addition to {hardware} and software program parts, have been assessed and/or licensed compliant to ISO 26262 by TÜV SÜD, an unbiased, accredited assessor that ensures compliance with the Worldwide Group for Standardization (ISO) 26262:2018 Purposeful Security Commonplace for Highway Autos.

Particularly, NVIDIA DRIVE core growth processes at the moment are licensed as ISO 26262 Automotive Security Integrity Stage (ASIL) D compliant. ISO 26262 relies on the idea of a security lifecycle, which incorporates planning, evaluation, design and implementation, verification and validation.


  • The NVIDIA DRIVE Orin SoC accomplished idea and product assessments and is deemed to fulfill ISO 26262 ASIL D systematic necessities and ASIL B random fault administration necessities.
  • The NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Orin board accomplished idea evaluation and is deemed to fulfill ISO 26262 ASIL D necessities.
  • The NVIDIA DRIVE Orin-based platform, which unifies the Orin SoC and DRIVE AGX Orin board, accomplished idea evaluation and is deemed to fulfill ISO 26262 ASIL D necessities.
  • Improvement of NVIDIA DRIVE OS 6.x is in progress and shall be assessed by TÜV SÜD. This follows the current certification of DRIVE OS 5.2, which incorporates NVIDIA CUDA libraries and the NVIDIA TensorRT software program growth package for real-time AI inferencing.

Constructing protected autonomous car know-how is one in all NVIDIA’s largest and most vital endeavors, and purposeful security is the main focus at each step, from design to testing to deployment.

Purposeful security is paramount within the deployment of AVs — making certain they function safely and reliably with out endangering occupants, pedestrians or different street customers.

AV Purposeful Security Management

The preliminary ISO 26262 ASIL D purposeful security certification — and recertification — of NVIDIA’s {hardware} growth processes, together with the evaluation of two generations of SoCs that embrace NVIDIA GPU and Tensor Core know-how, display NVIDIA’s dedication to AV purposeful security.

NVIDIA’s management in AV security is additional exhibited in its contributions to revealed requirements – comparable to ISO 26262 and ISO 21448 — and ongoing initiatives — comparable to ISO/TS 5083 on AV security, ISO/PAS 8800, ISO/IEC TR 5469 on AI security and ISO/TR 9839.

Unified {Hardware} and Software program Structure

NVIDIA gives a unified {hardware} and software program structure all through its AV analysis, design and deployment infrastructure. NVIDIA DRIVE Hyperion is an end-to-end, modular growth platform and reference structure for designing autonomous autos. The newest technology contains the NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Orin developer package, plus a various and redundant sensor suite.
