we are currently using DRIVE Software 10.0. However, we want to update to DRIVE OS Linux 5.2.6 and DriveWorks 4.0.
We noticed that DRIVE AV Perception (with the DNNs such as PathNet and PilotNet) are not part of the DriveWorks SDK anymore. Why is this the case? Is it still possible to install and use DRIVE AV Perception with DRIVE OS Linux 5.2.6 and DriveWorks 4.0?

Thanks in advance.

No, DRIVE Perception is part of AV which is only available in DRIVE Software 10.
Please refer to NVIDIA DRIVE SDK | NVIDIA Developer for the details.

So it is not possible to use DRIVE Perception with DriveWorks 4.0.? Why is this the case?
If we want to continue using PathNet, PilotNet and DRIVE Perception, we would only have to update to DriveWorks 3.5. without updating to DriveWorks 4.0.?

DriveWorks 3.5 doesn’t have DRIVE Perception too.
DRIVE Software 10 is the last release including DRIVE Perception.
We don’t release DRIVE Software anymore.
Please contact your nvidia representative for the details.

In general, is it still possible to obtain the DRIVE Perception software (for example by purchasing it seperately)?

Beyond DRIVE Software 10, it’s not available on devzone.
Please contact nvidia representative for accurate information.

Because you mentioned that DRIVE Perception is not part of DriveWorks 3.5: When I check the documentation for DriveWorks 3.5, it still shows the DNN perception samples as part of DriveWorks 3.5. Is this correct?

Please check the note in Perception. Thanks.
