That's not saying very much.
It's also absolutely arbitrary. Why not compare to 8086? The number would be even more dramatic, but it won't tell anyone anything. It is, at least to me, somewhat surprising that they even stress that they need this much processing power.

How do I get on a list when Volvo introduces autonomous driving in the US? And how come they can't put Pilot Assist on the T5 drive e cars? The 16 T5 drive e's already can steer the car (lane keep assist).

The new MB's have distronic plus with steer assist, even on the "cheap" c class's. After seeing some videos of that, it's pretty impressive. Not fully autonomous, but would make a boring commute a little better. These are production cars, not the "intelligent drive" s class they have cruising around LA.

Nvidia "supercomputer" for self-driving cars

I didn't have this handy at work, but found it pretty quickly from home: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...ternative-route-to-google-s-driverless-future
What that is, is a Bloomberg piece on a company that does driver assistance systems. They also included a link to a TED talk by a Google dude, which is a bit feverish, but does provide a valuable insight into what Google and others do in this space. https://www.ted.com/talks/chris_urmson_how_a_driverless_car_sees_the_road?language=en
I suppose to draw a parallel with popular culture, Google is going along the lines of "Ex machina" and uses Google data (maps, search, social) to augment real time inputs from lasers. Volvo doesn't have the same data, so they have to solve the problem differently hence the "supercomputer" requirements.

I know, I am fun and very popular at parties. I'll see myself out, thanks.

WRT/ the jalopnik link, Google's autonomous vehicles have had hyper-accurate maps of the San Jose area, to the extent they contain curb heights and other mundane information. I considered that a form of cheating because I assumed that type of minutia would never be available for general navigation, but appears these maps will be available at a car retailer near you.

"I'm sorry Dave, I can't let you do that" when you want to go to a non-Volvo mechanic...
