NVIDIA GPUs Power First Self-Driving Shuttle

The six-passenger WEpod shuttle became the world’s first vehicle without a steering wheel to be given license plates. Without any special lanes, magnets or rails, the shuttle successfully navigates between two towns in the Netherlands.

Created by a team of researchers from Delft University of Technology, WEpod use NVIDIA GPUs to tackle the massive computing challenge of training sophisticated deep learning models for their dynamic system which is then able to deal with real-world situations of mixed traffic quickly, reliably and safely.

The day is fast approaching when you will be able to request an autonomous shuttle with a mobile app.
