According to the statement made by Lucid Motors, the new models will be built on Nvidia's Drive Hyperion platform.
Hyperion, the next generation member of the Drive platform, allows manufacturers to customize the driving characteristics of their cars. This system, which works similarly to Tesla's "Full Self-Driving" chipset and Intel's "Mobileye EyeQ" chipset, creates the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) of cars.
ℹ️ - WHAT IS ADAS?
Adas, meaning "Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems." is a set of radars, sensors and cameras designed for safer and more comfortable driving installed in new generation vehicles.
This system, which undertakes important tasks such as minimizing driver errors, avoiding accidents, being a warning in situations requiring sudden reflexes, processes the data from the sensors at high speed and warns the driver by noticing any danger situation or takes actions to reduce the danger.
Features such as lane keeping, collision avoidance, following distance protection, night vision are integrated into this system, and today these systems form the heart of autonomous cars.
The reason for the strong preference of the ADAS system is that it can read the data from the sensors very quickly and the system can make more accurate decisions.
Lucid Motors, which is known as a Tesla competitor and made a rapid entry into the market with the Lucid Air model, postponed the launch of the electric SUV model, codenamed "Project Gravity", to 2024 due to the chip crisis and problems in the supply chain.
