GTC Digital: Learn How BMW Uses NVIDIA Technology to Develop the ‘Ultimate Industrial Autonomous Robot’

At GTC Digital 2020, BMW Group researchers shared behind-the-scenes insights about how the company’s autonomous guided vehicle, Smart Transport Robot (STR), navigates indoors in industrial environments, using the NVIDIA ISAAC framework.

“BMW Group strives for the highest levels of innovation extending beyond car production,” the company said. “With NVIDIA, we’re developing our own robotics pipeline to redefine logistics at BMW Group and impact the industry at large.”

In the talk, the team describes how they implemented simultaneous localization and mapping, or SLAM, with 3D pose estimation approaches on the Jetson AGX Xavier to tackle the numerous challenges of a dynamic logistics environment.
