Baro Vehicles launches its LITA Carrier Board for the NVIDIA Jetson  Nano and the Xavier NX. A single-board with the purpose of robotics applications, designed to be used with the JETSON line processors.

To offer its technological developments, Baro Vehicles opens a new division, Baro Engineering, which will focus on the commercialization of robotics components, engineering services, implementation and integration.

After the presentation at the Advanced Engineering in 2018, Baro decided to extract the AI ​​computer from the robotic platform of the Baro One golf cart and reengineer it into a modernised, smart, compact form factor. Thereby, retaining all the power of its predecessor. But, having integrated the new technologies that are very much in keeping with today’s standards. 

Suitable for indoor and outdoor robots 

The LITA Carrier Board for the NVIDIA Jetson was delicately thought to be the brain of a robot that could operate in indoor and outdoor areas. For example, if the GPS device had lost its connection to the satellite while in motion. The robot could continue operating, thanks to its dead reckoning technology and built-in IMU.

Secondly, there is the ability to connect up to 4 MIPI CSI-2 cameras in order to provide 360-degree computer of vision. And thirdly, in terms of connectivity, the carrier board provides a high speed and reliable PCIe interface for wireless communication. Utilizing the  3G / 4G module that can be installed using the onboard M.2 KEY B slot. Providing a cellular data connection, which relaxes the constraints of wi-fi and can also be operated in conjunction with the built-in Bluetooth module.

In addition, for AI products that need a human-machine interface based on voice synthesis. The LITA Carrier Board has the ability to integrate speakers and a microphone. To maintain a bi-directional communication between the user and the robot.

And finally, thinking of robots with wheels, this All-in-One board has a powerful high-speed CANBUS-FD connection that allows you to control canbus devices that are compatible with the traditional CANBUS protocol of 1 Mbps or the new CAN-FD technology with up to 5mpbs.

Key features of the product:

  • ARTIFICIAL VISION
  • Localization: GPS with dead reckoning, IMU
  • Communication: 4G/5G, Bluetooth 5.0
  • CAN-FD interface (compatible CANBUS) to control actuators
  • MULTICAM interfaces up to 4 cameras x 2-lane MIPI CSI-2

LITA carrier board for NVIDIA makes peripheral integration easy

Baro Vehicles has been actively participating in the ecosystem of self-driving cars. Through the development of our product, the LITA Carrier Board. “We challenged ourselves with developing a solution, which integrated the necessary peripherals that are fundamental in a modern autonomous vehicle. In that development process, we were faced with many challenges that you may also now be facing. For this exact reason, today We are offering this highly integrated solution to help creative people realize their ideas and facilitate the development of AI products.”  – Gabriel Giani, CEO & CTO of Baro Vehicles.

“When we were designing the LITA Carrier board we think of its specific destination, to be used in a robot, to be scalable, integrable, and with an incredibly small form factor that is ideal for robotics applications.”- said the systems engineer Giani.  “We are making peripheral integration a thing of the past, LITA is the only board you will need to create an AI product with wheels. Our motto is Dream it and Build it! and making that possible today.”

Facilitating the development of robots for Industry 4.0

The pandemic has strengthened the development of artificial intelligence products, mainly those destined for logistics or industry 4.0. The manufacturing companies that had implemented this technology had continued operating throughout the COVID19 crisis and were able to obtain a competitive advantage to face the economic and financial catastrophe. 

The crisis has forced many companies to reevaluate their digital transformation processes and invest in these solutions to continue operating. As a result, we are now faced with the need for social distancing. For that reason, co-bots are becoming an almost essential investment in some industries. Where AI robotics has become a necessary component in maintaining reliable operations. The LITA Carrier Board in combination with the NVIDIA Jetson is a versatile system that can be implemented in many artificial intelligence applications.

Some use cases:

  •       Robotic arm platform
  •       Mobile robot-platform
  •       Intralogistics robotic supply platform
  •       Tracked robot.
  •       Camera platform – robotic survey
  •       Delivery bot
  •       Security bot
  •       Fumigation or sanitization platform
  •       … and more

Dream it & Build it! Partnership with RobotShop

Baro has decided to strengthen its banner motto “Easy deployment of AI products. Dream it & Build it!”. Therefore, launch the product, the LITA carrier board, through the RobotShop platform.
