Isuzu taps Nvidia for truck self-driving breakthrough

Partners aim to apply data from passenger cars to commercial vehicles

The Japanese government has pushed for the development of self-driving commercial vehicles.

TOKYO -- Isuzu Motors will join with chipmaker Nvidia on self-driving technology, particularly on helping autonomous systems learn how to drive trucks and other large commercial vehicles based on data collected by passenger vehicles.

The companies have entered final negotiations regarding the usage of collected data and ownership of the final product, with collaboration to begin as early as this year. Isuzu will have exclusive rights to the resulting technology among Japanese commercial vehicle makers.
