Advantech has announced the launch of its AMR-S100 Box PC to accelerate autonomous mobile robot (AMR) development, industrial automation, and Edge AI deployments. 

The AMR-S100 incorporates the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin system-on-module for powerful AI computing capabilities. AMR-S100 is designed to provide a production-ready solution for companies aiming to advance NVIDIA Isaac Perceptor from prototyping to the production phase. Additionally, it is seamlessly compatible with the NVIDIA JetPack SDK and approved sensor modules in the NVIDIA Nova Orin development kit, so customers can deploy AMR as well as other robot configurations and applications more efficiently in terms of time and cost. Advantech also provides its own ROS 2 Suite package to customers, allowing users to operate via remote control, perform hardware status monitoring, security management and more.

Pablo Lin, Director of Advantech ACG, appreciates support from the NVIDIA Nova Orin team for assisting on product development of the AMR-S100. “We closely collaborated with NVIDIA's engineering and product teams to make this the first product compatible with NVIDIA Isaac Perceptor, a collection of foundation models, robotics tools and GPU-accelerated libraries,” said Mr. Lin.

The AMR-S100 aims to be an ideal off-the-shelf product, as well as a key tool for ODM opportunities. By selecting Nova Orin compatible AMR-S100 and sensors, customers can get a head start on developing their application software, without having to worry about system software for the compute, sensors, performance, and thermal design. Advantech ACG plans to continue collaborating with NVIDIA on the latest technology to deliver the best platform for the autonomous mobile robot industry.
