Edge AI Platform powered by NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier
Neousys Technology has announced a new Edge AI inference platform, the NRU-110V. Powered by NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier, it supports 8 GMSL automotive cameras and has one 10GBASE-T Ethernet port for massive real time video data transfer.
With the ever-increasing need for outdoor AI applications, a capable transmission scheme for low-latency and High Dynamic Range (HDR) videos becomes critical. With the support of GMSL cameras that feature 3-exposure HDR, LED flicker mitigation, light-sensitivity and IP67 waterproof characteristics, they enable the NRU-110V to capture clear images with minimal latency.
The ability to quickly and automatically adjust the camera's exposure value according to changes in light, shadow and auto white balance are some of NRU-110V’s biggest traits. Another unique function of NRU-110V is its synchronise mechanism to simultaneously capture high quality images from 8 GMSL cameras while accepting GPS PPS signal to align image data with other sensors.
In addition to supporting GMSL cameras, NRU-110V also has comprehensive I/Os for connecting a wide range of devices. Of which, the 10Gb Ethernet is designed to transmit mass image data volume to another GPU computer that performs high-speed sensing applications and the connection helps realise sensing and planning on the same platform.
There are 32GB of eMMC storage but NRU-110V also comes with an M.2 2280 NVMe socket for installing an SSD for fast read/ write data performances. Other expansions and connections include one mini-PCIe socket for WiFi or 4G module, 1x GPS PPS for cross-platform synchronisation, 3-CH isolated DI and 4-CH isolated DO for communication with external devices.
"NRU-110V consolidates outdoor AI applications by bridging low latency HDR automotive camera to powerful GPU x86 computers with industrial-grade features. It is a turnkey solution that features on-board GMSL deserialisers to pre-installed Board Support Package (BSP) with drivers for selected cameras. It is suitable for AI-based vision applications requiring continuous interaction with surroundings in dynamic lighting conditions.
For example, autonomous driving, mobile robots, precision agriculture, intelligent V2X, to teleoperation," said Kaichu Wu, Product Manager at Neousys Technology.
With the integration of GMSL camera support, GPU deep learning, transcoding capability through the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier module, the Neousys NRU-110V is an innovative platform designed for modern edge AI applications.
