Uber collaborates with Nvidia on self-driving fleet

Uber has picked Nvidia as one of its key technology partners in its fleet of self-driving cars, specifically to provide the AI computing aspects of its autonomous software.

The partnership is one that has been in development for a while now, including in its very first test Volvo XC90 SUVs, which followed the introduction of its program using modified Ford sedans.

Uber has used Nvidia’s GPUs in both its self-driving ride hailing test fleet, and in its self-driving transport trucks, which are also developed by its Advanced Technologies Group.

To date, Uber has accumulated two million autonomous miles in its self-driving passenger vehicles, and has run over 50,000 passenger trips in total.

Of the two million miles they’ve driven, the most recent million were also driven in just the last 100 days alone, representing a significant ramp up in the pace of their program.
