Cloud-enabled robot is powered by Nvidia Jetson AI

Software development teams and hardware teams can work in parallel to develop robotic systems, cutting development time by up to 80 per cent, using the Nimbus software, says Cogniteam. The company has announced that the cloud-based robotics development and deployment platform now supports Nvidia Jetson edge AI technology.  The Nimbus’s packaging of field-tested software, such as sensors and AI capabilities, accelerates development time, with rapid up-time for cameras, spatial awareness sensors, and other advanced technologies, which can now be instantly uploaded to assets via the cloud.

The latest Nvidia Isacc release includes support for the Robot Operating System (ROS) developer community, where Nvidia has released new Isaac GEMs, hardware-accelerated software packages to build AI-enabled robots on the Jetson platform. Software developers can install advanced AI algorithms from Nvidia Isaac ROS GEMs and standard ROS packages in just a few clicks, says the company. 

“Pulling from open source to commercial libraries, developers can work harmoniously to test AI algorithms without the worries of compatibility hassles,” said Cogniteam’s co-founder and CEO, Dr. Yehuda Elmaliah.

Nimbus is easy to use, meaning that basic programming can be achieved with minimal experience, according to the company. “This allowed us to begin addressing complex development challenges nearly immediately, without reinventing the wheel,” said Gal Frenkel, co-founder and CEO of RoboDeck. “We worked with Cogniteam to implement their industry-tested sensor technologies with Nvidia’s advanced algorithms and ROS capabilities. Nimbus gave us a powerful investor-ready prototype way ahead of schedule, getting us better prepared for production.”

Customers can use Nimbus to take advantage of their Nvidia integrations and simulate tests for the robots in various environments. Once deployed, teams can remotely update drivers and firmware. In other words, a single platform can be used to deploy a scalable fleet of robots, says Cogniteam.
