Cogniteam Ignites Robotics AI Capabilities with NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin Edge AI and Robotics Platform

Cogniteam used the Jetson AGX Orin to enable AI on robots using the Nimbus Operating System. “The NVIDIA AGX Orin is a huge leap for manufacturers and developers who want to see greater AI capabilities on their edge robots,” said Dr. Yehuda Elmaliah, Co-Founder & CEO of Cogniteam.

Cogniteam, a robotics company and creator of the Nimbus low-code robot development operating system, has integrated the latest NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Orin™ platform into its existing robot software packets. As a Preferred member of the NVIDIA Partner Network, Cogniteam had early access to the AGX Orin developer kit, which allowed the company to prepare a streamlined process for the next generation of edge robot capabilities.

Creating greater ease of development, testing, and deployment has cut the development times for robotics software dramatically. Yet, companies still face challenges when integrating new technologies. This is especially true for those who are looking to deploy a brand new system-on-module, such as the recently released Jetson AGX Orin.

To address the concerns of the industry and ease deployment, Cogniteam was able to include all the necessary Jetson Orin drivers and software components into its Nimbus software platform. Using Nimbus, it is now much quicker to get a robot with Jetson Orin up and running for inspection, maintenance, sanitization, service, and various data-intensive scenarios that require a high degree of autonomy. With a few clicks from the browser, developers are now able to drag and drop ready-made NVIDIA Isaac software development kit GEMs as Nimbus dockerized components. Users also have better support for ROS2 components and can upgrade them remotely, from anywhere in the world.

"The NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin is a huge leap for manufacturers and developers who want greater AI capabilities on their edge robots," said Dr. Yehuda Elmaliah, Co-Founder & CEO of Cogniteam. "We were pleased to see that the development of this new module integrates seamlessly with the Nimbus Operating System, enabling deployed robots to handle greater AI computational abilities."

As more robots gain cloud connectivity, AGX Orin's greater computing power will meet the market's demand for outfitting robots with greater autonomous capabilities, including AI decision-making. "Relying on Nimbus with Jetson AGX Orin, we dragged, dropped, and ran multiple AI models simultaneously on the robot," said Ari Yakir, VP of Research & Development at Cogniteam. "These skills included localization, gesture recognition, skeleton recognition, object recognition, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), and beyond."

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
