Thursday, 29 February, 2024 | Supplied by: Tekdis


Axiomtek has launched the ROBOX500, a ROS 2 AMR controller designed for navigation and control applications in heavy-duty industries. The robotic control system is powered by the 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor (code name: Alder Lake P). It provides a 4-channel GMSL interface for low latency and a high-resolution camera for long distances. Designed to support a range of sensors, the AMR controller features comprehensive I/O connectivity with an M12 lockable design for secure connection. The ROBOX500 also enables performance across temperatures ranging from -20 to +70°C and can withstand vibration up to 5 Grms. The AMR controller is suitable for heavy-duty autonomous vehicles such as driverless forklifts and autonomous road rollers.

The rugged AMR controller features Intel Iris Xe Graphics with 96 execution units, making it suitable for light AI inference. It also features an M.2 Key M 2242 slot for expanding AI capabilities with an optional AI module. The controller can also take a wide voltage input, from 9 to 60 VDC.

The device features a 4-channel GMSL interface, currently supporting the Intel RealSense D457. The AMR controller can also be bundled with the Ubuntu 22.04 LTS OS environment. In addition, it supports the Axiomtek AMR Builder Package to foster fast time to market. The software package includes ROS 2 nodes with docker images, a web-based management system, AprilTag and shape detection, precise positioning and obstacle avoidance.

The AMR controller also has two DDR4 SO-DIMM slots with up to 64 GB of system memory. One M.2 Key M 2280 slot with a high-speed NVMe interface is available for additional storage needs. For low-latency data transmission and rich expansion, the ROBOX500 supports an M.2 Key E 2230 slot for a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module, an M.2 Key B 3052 slot for a 5G module, as well as one SIM slot. A variety of I/O options include two M12 X-code GbE LAN, four M12 A-code USB 3.2 Gen1/USB 2.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, one USB 3.1 Gen1 port, one DIO (16-CH DI/8-CH DO) with isolation, four 4-wire RS-232/RS-422/RS-485, one RJ45, two CAN 2.0 A/B with isolation, four GMSL camera interfaces, one HDMI 1.4b, one Mic-in, one Line-out and four antenna openings.
