The Volvo Group has signed an agreement with NVIDIA to jointly develop the system of self driving commercial vehicles and machines. Utilizing NVIDIA’s end-to-end artificial intelligence platform for training, simulation and in-vehicle computing, the resulting system is designed to safely handle fully self driving on public roads and highways.
The solution will be built on NVIDIA’s full software stack for sensor processing, perception, map localization and path planning. Enabling a wide range of possible self driving applications, such as freight transport, refuse and recycling collection, public transport, construction, mining, forestry and more.
“Trucking is the world’s largest network – a network that through online shopping puts practically anything, anywhere in the world, quickly within our reach,” says NVIDIA founder and CEO. “The latest breakthroughs in AI and robotics bring a new level of intelligence and automation to address the transportation challenges we face. We are thrilled to partner with Volvo Group to reinvent the future of trucking.”
The strategic partnership covers end-to-end computing fundamental to autonomous vehicles. It includes accelerated computing technology in the datacenter for training deep neural networks. large-scale simulation for hardware-in-the-loop testing and validation of autonomous vehicle systems. And finally deployment of the NVIDIA DRIVE platform in the vehicle running the full software stack for 360-degree sensor processing, mapping and path planning.
