Qualcomm Robotics RB5 Development Kit

Pre-Order Development Kit from Thundercomm

As new opportunities for robotics continue to arise, how will developers find high compute, AI, computer vision, 5G and edge connectivity without exceeding their power budget?

Qualcomm® Robotics RB5 Development Kit is based on the Qualcomm Robotics RB5 Platform, and it delivers cutting-edge connectivity and high-accuracy AI and Machine Learning (ML) inferencing technology. Our robotics platform facilitates accelerated development of innovative, power-efficient, high computing robots and drones for enterprise, industrial and professional service applications.

The Qualcomm Robotics RB5 development kit combines the promise of 5G with the computing power for AI, deep learning, computer vision, 7-camera concurrency, rich multimedia and security. It is designed for OEMs, ODMs and developers who are building heterogeneous computing and comprehensive connectivity into their robots and drones.

At the heart of the kit is the Qualcomm® QRB5165 processor, customized for robotics applications, which offers powerful heterogenous computing architecture that delivers 15 Tera Operations Per Second (TOPS) of compute. The processor also offers incredible machine learning (ML) accuracy, a powerful image signal processor (ISP) with support for seven concurrent cameras, a dedicated computer vision engine for enhanced video analytics (EVA), as well as the new Qualcomm® Hexagon™ Tensor Accelerator (HTA). Its fifth-generation Qualcomm® AI Engine powers inferencing and accuracy with the dedicated Hexagon Tensor Accelerator. QRB5165 can support an industrial temperature range of –30C to +105C, with long life support. The kit can also offer LTE/5G/CBRS communications via a mezzanine card.

Our QRB5165 processor and Qualcomm Robotics RB5 platform cater to wide range of applications such as autonomous mobile robots (AMR), inventory robots, retail robots, cobots, pick-sort-place robots, cleaning robots, first mile robots, last mile delivery robots and delivery drones, prosumer and commercial drones, industrial & manufacturing robots, healthcare robots, defense robots, etc.

For robotics designers who need heterogeneous computing and LTE/5G with low power consumption, the Qualcomm Robotics RB5 development kit offers a base for proofs of concept and rapid prototyping. The kit is made to streamline development and shorten time to commercialization.

The development kit includes tools to add the following to your robotics development:

  • - Object tracking, detection and classification
