NRU-110V - Ruggedized Edge AI Platform Supporting 8x GMSL Cameras
Learn about the new NRU-110V by Neousys Technology. Powered by NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier, the NRU-110V is perfect for outdoor AI applications supporting 8x GMSL automotive cameras enabling captures of clear images with minimal latency.
Neousys Technology , an industry-leading provider of rugged embedded systems, today announced a new Edge AI inference platform, the NRU-110V. Powered by NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier, it supports 8 GMSL automotive cameras and has one 10GBASE-T Ethernet port for massive real-time video data transfer.
With the ever-increasing need for outdoor AI applications, a capable transmission scheme for low-latency and high dynamic range (HDR) videos becomes critical. With the support of GMSL cameras that feature 3-exposure characteristics, they enable the NRU-110V to capture clear images with minimal latency. The ability to quickly and automatically adjust the camera’s exposure value according to changes in light, shadow and auto white balance are some of NRU-110V’s biggest traits. Another unique function of NRU-110V is its synchronize mechanism to simultaneously capture high-quality images from 8 GMSL cameras while accepting GPS PPS signal to align image data with other sensors.
In addition to supporting GMSL cameras, NRU-110V also has comprehensive I/Os for connecting a wide range of devices. Of which, the 10Gb Ethernet is designed to transmit mass image data volume to another GPU computer that performs high-speed sensing applications and the connection helps realize sensing and planning on the same platform. There are 32GB of eMMC storage but NRU-110V also comes with an M.2 2280 NVMe socket for installing an SSD for fast read/ write data performances. Other expansions and connections include one mini-PCIe socket for WiFi or 4G module, 1x GPS PPS for cross-platform synchronization, 3-CH isolated DI and 4-CH isolated DO for communication with external devices.
