NVIDIA has previously shown their interest in providing the brains for autonomous vehicles, their Xavier chip is scheduled for release some time towards the end of the year.  They are continuing their efforts to break into this market by investing in start ups in a program called GPU Ventures.  Today DigiTimes reports that NVIDIA purchased a stake in a Chinese company called Tusimple which is developing autonomous trucks.  The transportation of goods may not be as interesting to the average consumer as self driving cars but the market could be more lucrative; there are a lot of trucks on the roads of the world and they are unlikely to be replaced any time soon.

No truck drivers or their kids will be able to afford to build a gaming PC NVidia. Great job!

Let's just automate drivers, bank tellers, farmers, financial advisers etc with 1% of people with 99.99% of the wealth, and the rest have to lick rocks.
