I have a few queries -

As we are expecting DRIVE AGX Orin DevKit to be available in Q1 2022 -

  1. Until then, when can we expect the Orin Software Releases be available for development?
  2. Also until then, can you help us out with a way to emulate the Drive Software (with both Roadrunner and our own proprietary modules) on the host PC itself so that we can keep up with our R&D timelines aligned at the software side?


Dear @gagandeepreehal,
Please check with NVIDIA representative for DRIVE Orin release schedule and plans.

Okay, and any solution to the second question?

Dear @gagandeepreehal,
We have DRIVE releases targeted for DRIVE AGX Xavier platform. Please check NVIDIA DRIVE Downloads | NVIDIA Developer. Note that You need to enroll into DRIVE Developer program to get access to our DRIVE SW.


Yes, we already have access to Drive Developer Program.

Though we initially ordered Pegasus Dev Kit, but due to some legal import issues due to lack of BIS certification, we decided to wait for Orin instead after discussing with out Nvidia rep.

Just wanted to know how can we emulate working of Drive SW on host PC itself within the Driveworks installed on host PC for testing our algorithms until the time Orin will be available next year.

Dear @gagandeepreehal,
As you have access to DRIVE Developer program, you can download DRIVE releases on host and continue development. Please download the DRIVE releases using sdkmanager
