Didi has selected Nvidia Drive, an end-to-end computing platform to develop, train, and validate its driverless technologies, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang announced at its graphics processing unit (GPU) conference in the eastern Chinese city of Suzhou on Wednesday. Didi will enhance its autonomous driving technologies by using Nvidia’s platform to train deep neural networks, which powers a self-driving car with visuals of its surrounding environment and help it make decisions based on what it sees. The ride-hailing giant will also use Nvidia’s GPUs in the data center for training machine-learning algorithms, which the company uses for route planning more than 40 billion times each day. It follows an announcement Didi made in August of plans to launch a robotaxi service pilot with a fleet of 30 L4 self-driving vehicles in the outskirt of Shanghai early next year. The city government has yet to grant permission for a passenger transport program, people close to the matter told TechNode earlier this month.
