    360 Degree Perception for Autonomous Vehicles

    The limits of human visual perception are rarely more evident than when driving. From your perspective in the driver’s seat, you may feel like you have a clear view of the road ahead of you, but your vision is limited by the physical barriers of the car itself. The frame of the car obstructs your […]

  • Ensuring Safety and Reliability for Driver Out Autonomous Trucks

    Ensuring Safety and Reliability for Driver Out Autonomous Trucks

    In our last post, we explained details of our Driver Out runs, including the advanced driving capabilities of our TuSimple Driver, and the setup we chose to ensure operational safety. Another important element of safety is optimizing the reliability of the autonomous truck. The world’s most safety-critical technologies and systems like spacecraft, power grids, and […]

  • An Autonomous Solution for Truck Weight Stations

    An Autonomous Solution for Truck Weight Stations

    Many people conjure up images of a fantastical future when asked to describe a world with autonomous trucks. This is a future of redesigned trucks without driver or passenger cabs, where human interactions with the truck are considerably reduced or deemed irrelevant. However, before we get to that point in the autonomous revolution, the world […]

    TuSimple 1,000-Meter Perception System

    Why 1,000-Meter Perception is Critical to Enable Level 4 Autonomous Trucking Semi-trucks weigh up to 80,000 pounds and operate mainly on highways with a maximum speed of 75 mph. Due to their size and limited maneuverability, semi-trucks take much more time than passenger vehicles to brake, change lanes, and make left-hand turns. The braking distance […]
