A scalable development platform for robotic systems, AMD’s Kria KR260 Robotics Starter Kit provides a smooth path to production deployment with the already available Kria K26 adaptive SOMs. With native ROS 2 support, the standard framework for robotics application development, and pre-configured interfaces for robotics and industrial solutions, the SOM Starter Kit enables the development of hardware-accelerated applications for robotics and machine vision. The Kria Robotics Stack (KRS), an integrated bundle of robotics libraries and utilities that leverage the hardware, is at the heart of the KR260 design experience. The Starter Kit costs 349US$.
Chromasens has introduced a 3D inspection system designed for detecting imperfections on the surface of metal cylinder heads requiring large field of views.
