JetBot AI Kit v3.0 (NVIDIA Jetson Nano board not included)
JetBot AI Kit v3.0 is a new solution by SparkFun for working on robotics projects that include artificial intelligence, machine learning and the Internet of Things using the NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit.
What is JetBot AI Kit v3.0?
It’s a brand-new kit that includes all the hardware and electronic components you’ll need to work on your project. And to get you even more rapidly up and running:
- A 64 GB microSD card pre-flashed with the software, code libraries and the drivers you need to get started with the SparkFun Qwiic ecosystem
- A wide-angle camera
- Motor and WiFi adapters
- A SparkFun Qwiic Micro OLED display
To use your kit, you’ll need a NVIDIA Jetson Nano board, a Jetson Nano Developer Kit and a Phillips head screwdriver. But no need for soldering thanks to Qwiic!
The kit includes version 4.3 of the NVIDIA Jetpack, an SDK designed to make integrating end-to-end AI applications easier.
Machine vision, machine learning, autonomous navigation...
The NVIDIA JetBot open-source platform opens the door to a whole new world of robotic creations, including the construction of complex neural networks. Whether you’re a teacher, researcher, designer or simply an enthusiast, you’ll have access to a complete range of projects integrating machine vision, navigation with obstacle detection, object tracking, etc.
