SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE

The solution includes hardware and software components. The hardware system is provided as a reference design, allowing partners to integrate Perception Engine into their robots easily.  The software is provided as an SDK which can provide all the real-time data on the edge. External connectivity, when enabled, allows for additional cloud based services 

Software & API

Perception Engine provides perception data over its API.  This data is then consumed by the robot control system which is responsible for path planning and autonomous behaviors.  The reference design supports multiple communication protocols including CAN bus and Ethernet.  The API can be accessed via C++, UDP, or ROS1/2 Wrapper.

System Hardware

The minimum hardware system reference design includes a single  Camera Module with built-in sensors and the Processor.  Optional components include additional Camera Modules, the Illumination Module, and a wide variety of supported sensors.  

RGo Robotics’ Evaluation Kit for Robot Manufacturers
Evaluation Kit

The Evaluation Kit is a fully integrated system with convenient connectors allows for efficient evaluations and proofs-of-concept.  If you are interested in testing Perception Engine in your application, please contact us.

HARDWARE REFERENCE DESIGNS

Perception Engine runs on ultra-low-cost, low-power hardware that uses commercially available components.  RGo Robotics offers the hardware for evaluations and low volume production.  For high volume production, manufactures can license the reference design and source the hardware from their preferred vendors.
