When rugged autonomy meets the road

With trucks moving 65 percent of freight in America, trucking companies are pursuing autonomous technology fueled by artificial intelligence to improve operating efficiencies and safety. At roughly 80,000 pounds, a self-driving truck requires extreme computing power to process massive amounts of sensor data for real-time situational awareness and split-second decision making in any conditions. Micah Snodgrass and Les Arnold, two of Crystal Group’s technical directors, discuss the balance of power, performance and precision needed to drive the fast-changing discipline of autonomous trucking.
