Nvidia GPU Technology Conference
The AutonomouStuff team turned out in a big way for GTC 2019 in Silicon Valley to announce the new partnership with Designated Driver.
AutonomouStuff is the first customer for the new service, which adds a human safety backstop to autonomous vehicles through teleoperation — giving someone with Designated Driver remote control of a vehicle when an autonomous system encounters a situation foreign to the software.
The GTC demonstration included a Designated Driver teleoperator in Portland, Oregon, taking remote control of an automated vehicle on the event grounds in San Jose, California. The system repeated several successful demonstrations with low latency over that 700-mile span between cities over the course of the conference.
