For those not familiar with TuSimple, they are a publicly traded company and they focus in creating autonomous self-driving trucks, which I think is pretty impressive. Trucks are such a huge machine, that you need to have so many sensors, because obviously a car can really cause a lot of damage, but a truck, self-driving, if that goes circuit can definitely cause some insane damage. They partnered up with Nvidia, chips to work on autonomous computing, to work with their autonomous driving. For those not familiar with Nvidia, they are semiconductor company that makes chips or processors and accelerators. The reason you need these accelerators is because when you're doing autonomous driving, you really need to be able to compute all this information, all these sensors that you're seeing at real time.
