At $1,099 NVIDIA’s Autonomous Robot Brain “JETSON” Goes on for Sale
Autonomous machines do more than simply complete tasks. They learn, evolve, and react to the world around them with the power of AI. NVIDIA® Jetson™ is the world’s leading platform for high-performance, energy-efficient AI computing. NVIDIA announced on Wednesday that its Jetson AGX Xavier module, designed to be the brains of autonomous machines, is now available for purchase — but only in batches of 1,000 or more, starting at $1,099. Robots, drones, and intelligent cameras can now harness the power of deep learning with NVIDIA Jetson TX2, the embedded supercomputer designed for edge devices. With AI at the edge, you count on fast, accurate inference in autonomous machines without worrying about network constraints.
NVIDIA Jetson is the world’s leading AI computing platform for GPU-accelerated parallel processing in mobile embedded systems. Its high-performance, low-power computing for deep learning and computer vision makes it the ideal platform for compute-intensive embedded projects.
These are AI supercomputers the size of a credit card that come loaded with incredible performance. They also feature NVIDIA Jetpack, a complete SDK that includes the BSP, libraries for deep learning, computer vision, GPU computing, multimedia processing, and more to accelerate your software development. NVIDIA Jetson modules are supported by the Jetson developer site, which includes documentation, tutorials, and an ecosystem of partners and developers. NVIDIA Jetson modules are full-featured development platforms for AI computing. NVIDIA Jetson modules are ideal for applications requiring high computational performance in a low-power envelope and designed to get you up and running quickly. Both the Jetson TX2 and TX1 dev kits come pre-flashed with a Linux environment, include support for many common APIs, and are supported by NVIDIA’s complete development tool chain.
The NVIDIA Jetson platform taps into the power of deep learning to enable groundbreaking applications.
- Real-time intelligent video analytics (IVA) systems are powering smarter, safer AI cities.
- Drones can now perform complex analysis on the edge for faster, more accurate response.
- Autonomous robotic systems can train and collaborate with other robots and people to boost efficiency.
- Businesses can build more efficient and predictable supply chains and logistics.
- Makers and developers have powerful new tools for exploring the future of AI computing.
NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier module is the newest member of the Jetson family which is a collection of differently performing AI systems to suit various needs. Each one can be accompanied by a complementary developer kit to ease the application development process. The chips went on sale in worldwide distributors Wednesday. Volume pricing starts at $1,099 for 1000+ units. NVIDIA already has a number of customers lined up, including Chinese shopping giant JD.com (delivery bots), Yamaha (drones) and Nanopore (DNA sequencing).
