Qualcomm® Robotics RB6 Development Kit

Purchase Development Kit from Thundercomm

You’ve demonstrated to your customers that you can deliver robotics solutions. Next, show them how you can deliver autonomous machines and robots that are even smarter and safer.

With the Qualcomm® Robotics RB6 platform, you can now build 5G connectivity, high compute, intelligent sensing, and on-device processing of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) workloads into power-efficient robotic applications. The Qualcomm Robotics RB6 development kit is designed for developers working on innovative robotic designs that require multiple cameras, video processing, 5G connectivity, and accelerated AI on a tight power budget.

In the enterprise, ideal applications include:

  • Automated machine robots (AMRs)
  • Delivery robots
  • Inventory robots
  • Picking and sorting robots
  • Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) base stations
  • Urban air mobility

Industrial applications include:

  • Intelligent factories
  • Automotive/electronics manufacturing
  • Cobots (e.g., fixed robotic arms)

The heterogeneous computing architecture of the Qualcomm Robotics RB6 platform in the development kit delivers 70 to 200 tera-operations per second (TOPS) with a low thermal profile and low power consumption. It can perform on-device video processing and its image signal processor (ISP) supports up to 24 concurrent camera feeds. The kit offers high AI and ML accuracy, and developers can add LTE/5G/CBRS connectivity (with support for global sub-6GHz and mmWave bands) through a mezzanine card.

The Qualcomm Robotics RB6 platform combines the Qualcomm Robotics RB5 platform with the AI inference acceleration of the enhanced Qualcomm® AI Engine. Take advantage of the Qualcomm® Intelligent Multimedia SDK to tie together multimedia, AI and ML, computer vision, and networking in your robotic applications.

The Qualcomm Robotics RB6 development kit is available now for prototyping and testing. The kit is designed to help you commercialize enterprise and industrial robotics that accelerate AI at the network edge with LTE/5G and low power consumption.

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

  • Object tracking, detection and classification
  • Object depth and avoidance
  • Face detection and recognition
  • Scene classification and understanding
  • Gesture and hand tracking
  • Voice activation and audio classification
  • vSLAM (visual localization and mapping)
  • Visual inertial odometry (VIO)
  • Path planning and 3D map formation
  • Obstacle avoidance
  • Deep learning
