Karma Automotive Debuts Level 4 E-Flex Van

Karma Automotive, a Southern California-based car company, says its SAE1 Level 4 autonomous van with a battery electric vehicle (BEV) architecture has arrived.

The SAE1 Level 4 autonomous van is one of five platforms designed to offer new electric mobility solutions through extended-range electric vehicle (EREV) and BEV chassis systems.

Karma’s new L4 E-Flex Van is powered by the NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Pegasus autonomous vehicle computing platform, which achieves 320 trillion operations per second of deep learning. It is built on a scalable architecture, with two NVIDIA Xavier processors and two Tensor Core GPUs. This energy-efficient AI computer runs an array of deep neural networks simultaneously for safe, highly automated and fully autonomous driving. The L4 van’s software platform and sensors suite are supported by WeRide, which covers a full 360-degree field of view and provides precise, real-time localizations powered by multiple sensors including LiDar, radar, camera, GNSS and INS.
