Self Driving Semi Truck Nvidia is Powering TuSimple autonomous trucking


Staff member
Autonomous trucking company TuSimple is preparing to scale its self-driving tech with the help of Nvidia’s newest system-on-a-chip (SoC), Drive Orin, the company announced at CES. The chip, which is specifically made for autonomous applications, will provide the robust, compact, energy-efficient and auto-grade compute power necessary to accelerate TuSimple’s race to get its self-driving trucks to market.

The relationship between Nvidia and TuSimple has been going on for years, with Nvidia leading TuSimple’s Series B round in 2017. Drive Orin is part of Nvidia’s Hyperion 8, a production-ready platform that includes sensors, compute and software needed for AV development, which came to market in November.
