E-Commerce Giants Select NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier for Next-Gen Delivery Robots

Leading China e-commerce companies and Meituan have selected the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier platform to power their next-generation autonomous delivery robots. Over the past decade, China’s e-commerce has grown to represent more than 40 percent of the world’s online transactions —accounting for hundreds of billions of dollars in trade annually. 

That’s larger than the combined total in the U.S., Japan, Germany, UK, and France, according to the McKinsey Global Institute. To support this tremendous growth, China’s leading e-commerce companies are developing AI delivery robots to move goods to and from warehouses, speed up last-mile deliveries and deliver products to consumers and businesses.
