The Aurora Driver
Created from industry-leading hardware and software, the Aurora Driver is designed to adapt to a variety of vehicle types and use cases, allowing us to deliver the benefits of self-driving across several industries, including long-haul trucking, local goods delivery, and people movement.
This central hub is the heart of the Aurora Driver—processing sensor data, running autonomy software, and allowing the Driver to make quick, precise decisions on the road.
Incredibly fast, reliable processing that is orders of magnitude more powerful than a typical desktop computer
Compact design allows easy integration into all vehicle platforms, from class 8 trucks to passenger vehicles
Built to withstand a wide range of temperatures and on-road conditions, from Pittsburgh snow to Texas heat
We’ve adopted a “smarter, not farther” approach to on-road testing. Instead of blindly pushing to drive more and more miles, we’ve continued to focus on collecting quality real-world data and on getting the most value out of every data point. For example, we amplify the impact of real-world experience by flagging interesting or novel events and incorporating them into our Virtual Testing Suite. One real-life situation can inspire tens or even hundreds of test permutations, all of which can be continually used to fine-tune existing capabilities. The Online to Offline pipeline allows us to rapidly convert on-road events into virtual tests.
