Volvo and NVIDIA to Develop Advanced AI Platform

June 20, 2019

The Volvo Group and NVIDIA will jointly develop a decision-making system of autonomous commercial vehicles and machines. The resulting system is designed to safely handle fully autonomous driving on public roads and highways.

According to a press release, the solution will be built on NVIDIA’s full software stack for sensor processing, perception, map localization, and path planning. This will enable autonomous driving applications such as freight transport, construction, mining, and more. The partnership will also focus on the development of a scalable Autonomous Driving System, which will be used in first in commercial pilots and later, commercial offerings from Volvo Group.  

“Trucking is the world’s largest network–a network that through online shopping puts practically anything, anywhere in the world, quickly within our reach,” Jensen Huang, NVIDIA founder and CEO, said. “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.”
