AI Case Study

TuSimple successfully completed a 200-mile level 4 test drive of a driverless truck passed from San Diego to Yuma, Arizona.

Formed in 2015, TuSimple develops technology for autonomous long-distance freight delivery. It uses NVIDIA GPUs, NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2, Jetson TX2, CUDA, TensorRT and cuDNN to develop its autonomous driving solution. In June, the company successfully completed a 200-mile Level 4 test drive from San Diego to Yuma, Arizona, using NVIDIA GPUs and cameras as the primary sensor.
