Introduction

NRU-51V series is a rugged Jetson Orin™ NX/ Xavier™ NX computer supporting GMSL2 cameras that can act either as a sensor hub or a perception unit for ADAS, teleoperation, autonomous mobile robots, and autonomous vehicles.

By supporting GMSL2 automotive cameras, they enable NRU-51V+ with greater vision capability by taking advantage of advanced features such as IP67 waterproof, high dynamic range (120dB HDR), auto white balance (AWB), and LED flicker mitigation (LFM). NRU-51V+ can obtain high quality images with minimal latency regardless of lighting conditions, from bright sunny days to pitch-black nights. Moreover, it has a unique synchronization mechanism capable of acquiring images from four GMSL2 cameras simultaneously within microseconds channel-to-channel skew. It can further accept GPS PPS signal to align image data with LIDAR or synchronize cameras on other systems.

Thanks to the great power efficiency of NVIDIA® Jetson Orin NX™ NX SOM, NRU-51V+ delivers 100 TOPS inference performance in its 25W power package. Users can transfer raw camera images through its built-in 10GBASE-T Ethernet to another GPU server for perception processing, but also leverage its significant TOPS for real-time object or ROI detection. For teleoperation applications, users can utilize its hardware H.264/265 video codec, to encode video streams from four GMSL2 cameras in real-time and transmit the live video feed to a driver at a remote location via 5G telecommunication with minimum latency.

The combination of GMSL2 interface and Jetson Orin™ NX makes NRU-51V+ much more than just a simple edge AI computer. With greater vision brought by automotive cameras plus I/O interfaces such as 10GbE, CAN 2.0, and M.2 for 5G broadband, NRU-51V+ plays a central role in a moving platform, as a sensor hub for ADAS, a perception unit for AGV/ AMR, or a teleoperation controller for off-highway vehicles.
