Adaptive Computing in Robotics

Demand for robotics is accelerating rapidly. Building a robot that is safe and secure and can operate alongside humans is difficult enough. But getting these technologies working together can be even more challenging. Complicating matters is the addition of machine learning and artificial intelligence which is making it more difficult to keep up with computational demands. Roboticists are turning toward adaptive computing platforms which offer lower latency and deterministic, multi-axis control with built-in safety and security on an integrated, adaptable platform that is expandable for the future.

KR260 Starter Kit for an “Instant-On” Robotics Experience

kr260-kit-w-sd-card

The KR260 Robotics Starter Kit integrates high-performance industrial interfaces and features native ROS 2 support. Designed for robotics and industrial applications, the KR260 is the fastest way to develop intelligent factory solutions for production volume deployment with the K26 SOM.

Kria App Store

Achieve embedded design simplicity for vision AI applications with production-grade accelerated applications targeting the Kria K26 SOM and KV260 Vision AI Starter Kit. Explore this new paradigm for software-based design while maintaining FPGA performance benefits and system-level flexibility for edge applications.

Develop

The Kria robotics stack (KRS) is an integrated set of robot libraries and utilities that use hardware to accelerate the development, maintenance, and commercialization of industrial-grade robotic solutions. It adopts the ROS 2 Software Development Kit (SDK) and enables a ROS 2-centric development approach that spans from the creation of computational graphs to the commercialization of ROS 2 overlay workspaces found in the AMD Xilinx App Store.

Download the stack now and access documentation and tutorials on our GitHub page.
