RAP7 Topic: When Rugged Autonomy meets the Road.

Snipet: With trucks moving 65 percent of freight in America.  Trucking companies are seeking 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.
