In June 2019, NVIDIA announced a partnership with Volvo to develop fully autonomous industrial and commercial trucks. The development will leverage on the NVIDIA DRIVE platform, which is capable of Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) and can plan its route on a High Definition (HD) map using Artificial Intelligence (AI). Early last year, Cohda Wireless ported its Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) software to the NVIDIA DRIVE platform, enabling wireless 802.11p and 5G connectivity to expand the detection range beyond the car’s on-board sensors. As such, the platform can process sensor data from other cars and infrastructure. The NVIDIA DRIVE platform is a modular and scalable solution that offers the NVIDIA DRIVE software stack; AGX hardware; AutoPilot, which is a Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Level 2+ self-driving solution; and Constellation, a data center solution that simulates cameras, radar and Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) inputs to test Autonomous Vehicles (AV). The partnership between Volvo and NVIDIA is the first to utilize the whole of NVIDIA DRIVE platform’s End-to-End Solution (E2ES).
