NVIDIA and China’s Didi Chuxing announce cloud, driverless car partnership

Driverless cars are quickly becoming a reality. The autonomous vehicle space has witnessed spectacular advances and billions in investment over the years. Tech players are exploring ways to leverage the ubiquitous nature of cloud platforms to store and process the massive data acquired from autonomous car sensors.

American GPU giant NVIDIA is reportedly partnering with Chinese mobile transportation platform Didi Chuxing (DiDi). It appears that DiDi would look to leverage NVIDIA GPUs and AI capabilities to develop self-driving tech and cloud computing solutions.

Delivering over 10 billion passenger trips every year, DiDi is evidently working towards safer, large-scale application of self-driving technology, leveraging its own capabilities and partnering with tech leaders and OEM partners.
