ARM has signed a deal with US startup Nuro boost driverless vehicle technology using AI on its automotive processor technologies.

The multi-year collaboration aims to drive a scalable approach to the commercialization of driverless vehicles with AI using the ARM Automotive Enhanced (AE) technology.

The Nuro Driver is Nuro’s core technology, an integrated autonomous driving system consisting of AI-first software and custom-built sense and compute hardware.

Being AI-first means Nuro Driver’s perception and behaviour capabilities are learned from data to capture the nuances of the real world and provide a natural driving experience. The resulting system is embedded in an engineered system with rules-based checks to provide further safety guarantees.

The technology is already on roads today in two states in the US for local goods delivery. Nuro Driver has also been successfully integrated into seven distinct commercial and consumer vehicle platforms.

“Our goal has always been to bring the benefits of autonomous technology to as many people as possible. Building the next generation Nuro Driver on Arm signals that we are moving toward realizing that goal,” said Andrew Clare, Nuro’s CTO. “Our AI-first approach to autonomy requires best-in-class compute performance paired with exceptional power efficiency, a combination Arm excels at.”

Nuro uses ARM IP across their autonomy stack and plans to build its next-generation Nuro Driver on the IP.

“Where there is AI, there is ARM – and now the AI revolution is delivering game-changing advances in the autonomous sector,” said Dipti Vachani, SVP and GM Automotive Line of Business, ARM.

“We are delivering cutting edge, safety-enabled compute platforms with AI capabilities built into them from the ground up, enabling this technology to scale across multiple applications and providers. Strategic long-term collaborations like this one between Arm and Nuro will accelerate progress on the journey to an autonomous future.”;
