Key Benefits

AMR environments pose unique challenges due to the inherent variability of warehouse operations and factory lines. These challenges include task-specific complexities like load pickup and drop-off. Artificial intelligence (AI) can address these complexities through advanced 3D perception capabilities, offered by Isaac Perceptor, built on ROS 2. This combination ensures optimal performance and modularity for your specific needs.

Fully Optimized for Mobile Robots

NVIDIA solutions are custom-built for autonomous forklifts and various industrial mobile robots. They’re packaged with robust visual odometry and 3D surround vision for obstacle detection and occupancy mapping.

Scalable Sensor Architecture 

Tap into the industry’s first scalable architecture for one to eight cameras with time synchronization across all the cameras and Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs). 

Ready for Deployment 

Isaac Perceptor comes with pre-integrated, extensively tested subgraphs for mobile robots, ensuring seamless integration with existing software stacks and robots.

Nova Developer Kit
Nova Carter is an advanced reference robot assembled and ready to use along with Isaac Perceptor

Nova Carter

This advanced reference robot comes fully assembled and ready to use along with Isaac Perceptor. It includes an NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin™ system-on-module with up to 275 TOPS of compute and uses lidar and a set of stereo cameras for surround perception, mapping, and navigation. The robot is calibrated and tested to work out of the box, giving you valuable time to innovate on new features and capabilities.

Nova Carter is ideal for collecting data for mapping test areas like a warehouse or a factory. The processed data can then be deployed into Carter to achieve full autonomy.
