ESCONDIDO, Calif., April 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — One Stop Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: OSS), a leader in cutting-edge transportable AI solutions, has confirmed two new self-driving truck programs with a pioneer of autonomy-driving technology and a subsidiary of one of the world’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturers using level 4 driving automation. Management believes these victories reflect OSS’s focus and success in a rapidly growing multi-billion dollar self-driving truck market segment.
OSS worked closely with customers to define the attributes of Centauri that would make this product ideal for the self-driving truck market. Centauri is a rugged PCIe Gen 4 NVMe storage product offering high capacity in a compact, hot-swappable cartridge that slides into the Centauri chassis.
Large amounts of data are collected while an autonomous truck is on the road. This can be used to enhance or “learn” its self-driving capabilities from the many sensors deployed around the vehicle, including LiDAR, radar and video.
The combination of fast Gen 4 NVMe memory, rather than the previously used SATA drives, along with Centauri’s easily accessible location in the “saddle bag”, an external compartment of the long-haul self-driving truck, enables collection much more efficient and data suppression to keep the truck on the road as much as possible.
Autonomous trucking can increase truck transit time, creating greater efficiency and significantly improving the economy of shipping across the country. Self-driving capabilities allow trucks to cross the United States in two days instead of the current four days in a standard truck.
When a truck enters the depot, the waiting team can quickly remove the data-filled cartridge from the saddlebags, rather than climbing back into the truck where the compute server resides. An empty memory cartridge can be easily reinserted, allowing the truck to quickly resume its road trip. The cartridge filled with data can then slide into an OSS SDS compute server to be uploaded to the truck’s data center.
The SDS server is available today, with the Centauri storage product shipping before the end of the week. Product shipments are expected to begin in June 2022 against confirmed purchase orders.
“These wins continue to validate our strategy and transportable AI technology,” said David Raun, President and CEO of OSS, “and we believe establish OSS as a market leader in enhanced compute and storage for self-driving trucks. Autonomous trucking represents a perfect example of a rapidly growing market that demands “uncompromising performance” in harsh environments and where we believe we have a clear competitive advantage. »
Several self-driving truck innovators have chosen OSS platforms because the company has solved the power, cooling, vibration, form factors, and durable quality issues needed for AI deployed at the edge. To date, OSS products have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles in self-driving trucks.
“Unlike self-driving passenger cars,” Raun continued, “the self-driving truck market is operational today, driven by strong economic benefits and immediate return on investment. We will continue to work closely with our valued partners to continue to define specific products for this vast market.
OSS AI Transportables technology is aimed at the rapidly growing autonomous truck market which, according to a PitchBook report, is expected to grow from more than 16,000 Level 4 trucks sold next year to 1.6 million sold in 2030. The value global autonomous trucking market is expected to grow from USD 528 million in 2023 to USD 166.8 billion in 2035.
Centauri stores up to 128 terabytes in an eight-disc cartridge. Although the system is compatible with NVMe and SATA drives, its PCIe Gen4 with NVMe interface facilitates high-speed storage throughput with 3.5x to 5x faster data transfer compared to SATA performance.
Centauri is designed to meet MIL-STD-810G ruggedness requirements. Its 3U form factor, half-rack width, and shallow 20-inch depth make it an ideal storage expansion for any system designed to capture data in high-end applications. Additional features include dynamic fan speed control, a lightweight aluminum enclosure, and IPMI 2.0-based system monitoring over dedicated Ethernet.
OSS is showcasing Centauri today at the AUVSI XEPONENTIAL 2022 conference in Orlando, Florida. This annual event brings together leaders and end users from across industries to solve real problems in autonomous and unmanned technology. The conference is organized by AUVSI, the world’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to advancing autonomous systems and robotics.
Conference attendees can view Centauri and the full line of OSS systems for transportable AI applications at booth #1414. OSS products can also be ordered directly from OSS sales engineers at [email protected]. Application engineering and the company’s unique suite of software tools are also available upon request.
