Jetson AGX Orin

Nova Orin–more sensors for full autonomy.

Nova Orin adds more sensors to boost 3D perception around an AMR. This helps it operate in very large environments consisting of highly dynamic obstacles, other AMRs, and humans. 3D understanding also ensures higher uptime and availability.

Ultrasonic

Surrounding ultrasonic sensors for obstacle detection.

Camera

A mix of wide-angle fisheye cameras for teleoperation and stereo camera for perception tasks.

Lidar

A combination of short-range 2D lidar to ensure safety and 3D lidar for navigation and mapping.

Odometry

IMU, Wheel Encoder, and GPS for precise odometry.

* High-fidelity 4D ground truth sensors verify and validate existing sensors and provide data for creation of robot navigation maps with Isaac map.

Advanced compute system architecture.

Get production-ready with flexibility for safety requirements.



Our autonomous system architecture supports vision-based navigation, multi-sensor localization, and mapping. It’s ideal for navigating dynamic environments in large spaces and recording events. It also supports advanced tele-operation.

AMR
*Preliminary architecture; subject to change

In addition to all the features that our standard AMR supports, our autonomous safety PLC system architecture has safety integration for planar lidar.

AMR with Safety PLC
*Preliminary architecture; subject to change

In addition to all the features that our standard AMR supports, our autonomous 3D vision safety architecture features two NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin modules as main and safety computers. It runs software-defined safety models, uses 3D vision-based safety enhancing operational design domain (ODD), and implements the precision-time protocol (PTP) between these computers for synchronized time.
