RocketBoots shares enter the stratosphere

Investors are fighting to get a hold of RocketBoots shares following the company’s significant announcement.

According to its release, RocketBoots advised it has been accepted to the NVIDIA Metropolis Partner Program.

Headquartered in California, NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) is one of the world’s leading tech companies. It’s famous for developing integrated circuits, which are used in everything from electronic game consoles to personal computers (PCs).

The company is also a leading manufacturer of high-end graphics processing units (GPUs).

The business has a market capitalisation of roughly US$468 billion and employs over 22,000 people worldwide.

Being included in the Metropolis ecosystem allows RocketBoots to leverage NVIDIA developer tools and software development kits to enhance its AI-vision applications and services.

RocketBoots will use NVIDA’s high-performance computing platform to deliver advanced computer vision capabilities to its flagship software, Beehive.

Deployed and managed remotely, the software product collects physical world activity data through cameras and sensors. It is centred upon solving challenges in workforce management, property management and loss prevention.

Being admitted to the program provides RocketBoots the opportunity to gain early access to NVIDIA technology updates.

Furthermore, it creates another pathway for RocketBoots to market and sell its software in unison with NVIDIA.

Under the partnership, either party can terminate the agreement on immediate notice.
