at the annual event 5G Summit At the event, Qualcomm unveiled a new platform and new reference designs for 5G and edge AI robotics solutions.
With the introduction of the new Qualcomm Robotics RB6 platform and RB5 AMR reference design, the company’s new solutions will support the creation of more productive, autonomous and advanced robots.
However, these new solutions will unlock new commercial applications including autonomous mobile robots (AMR), delivery robots, highly automated manufacturing robots, collaborative robots, urban air mobility (UAM) aircraft, industrial drone infrastructure, autonomous defense solutions, and more. It will also help you.
By combining 5G capabilities with Qualcomm’s own AI engine, advanced applications and possibilities, including greater autonomy for delivery robots, seamless fleet management across AMR in industrial spaces, and next-generation intelligence to enable safe and autonomous UAM transportation are now becoming feasible. will be .
RB6 Platform and RB5 AMR Reference Design
The Qualcomm Robotics RB6 platform and Qualcomm RB5 AMR reference design enable OEMs and robot manufacturers to integrate ground robots in industrial use cases across a variety of industries including government, logistics, healthcare, retail, warehousing, and construction.
The RB6 platform provides state-of-the-art 5G connectivity supporting the global sub-6 GHz and mmWave bands in mainstream, enterprise and private networks. Qualcomm’s robotics platform also has a flexible architecture thanks to expansion cards that can be added to existing devices.
Meanwhile, the Qualcomm RB5 AMR reference design is the world’s first AMR reference design to deliver tightly integrated AI and 5G capabilities. This new solution will help accelerate the development of commercial, enterprise and industrial robots.
Dev Signh, Qualcomm’s Senior Director of Business Development and Head of Autonomous Robotics, Drones and Intelligent Machines, provided additional insight into the company’s latest release. press releasetalking:
“Building on the successful growth and traction of Qualcomm Technologies’ leading robotics solutions, the expanded Solutions Roadmap provides advanced AI and 5G technologies to support smarter, safer and more advanced innovations across robotics, drones and intelligent machines. “We’re fueling this. Robotic innovation with 5G connectivity and premium edge AI will transform the way we think and approach in the digital economy and the ever-evolving industry expectations.”
The Qualcomm RB5 AMR reference design is now available for pre-sale through ModalAI and the Qualcomm Robotics RB6 development kit is available for sale through Thundercomm.
