NVIDIA BB8 Self-Driving Car

Nobody really knows when self-driving cars will become mainstream, but NVIDIA's BB8 self-driving car certainly showed that a ton of progress is being made.

The BB8 is outfitted with NVIDIA's DRIVE PX 2 AI self-driving computer and can safely drive itself in this complex and dynamic environment.

This video is the official CES demo of BB8. Watch the self-driving car follow a winding course carved out from truckloads of dirt, a backyard-size patch of artificial lawn and various landscaping material, simulating a variety of road surfaces and obstacles.
