Volvo and Nvidia to develop autonomous technology

Volvo has partnered with Nvidia to develop a decision making system for autonomous commercial vehicles and machines.

Volvo says the solution will be built on Nvidia’s full software stack for sensor processing, perception, map localisation and path planning to enable a range of autonomous driving applications such as construction and mining.

Martin Lundstedt, CEO of the Volvo says: “Automation creates real-life benefits for both our customers and the society in terms of safety, energy efficiency and as a consequence productivity. We continue to gradually introduce automated applications in the entire spectrum of automation, from driver support systems to fully autonomous vehicles and machines.”

The scope of the deal covers accelerated computing technology in the datacentre for training deep neural networks, large-scale simulation for hardware in the loop testing and validation of autonomous vehicle systems. It also includes the deployment of the Nvidia Drive platform in the vehicle to run the full software stack for 360-degree sensor processing, mapping and path planning.

The autonomous driving system is expected to be used in commercial pilots and then later in commercial offerings from Volvo.
