Axiomtek AIE900-XNX – A 5G connected fanless Edge AI system for AMR, AGV, and computer vision

Axiomtek AIE900-XNX is a fanless Edge AI computing system powered by NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX system-on-module designed for autonomous mobile robots (AMR), automated guided vehicles (AGV), and other computer vision applications.

The system delivers up to 21 TOPS thanks to the 6-core NVIDIA Carmel ARM v8.2 (64-bit) processor, NVDLA accelerators, and 384-core NVIDIA Volta architecture GPU found in the Jetson Xavier NX module. The AIE900-XNX Edge AI computer also comes with a 5G module for high-speed cellular connectivity and supports SerDes, PoE, and MIPI CSI cameras for video processing.

Quad PoE camera Edge AI systemThe system runs Ubuntu 18.04 (that should be NVIDIA Jetpack) and supports wall, DIN Rail, and VESA mounting options. Axiomek also highlights the ability to connect to oToBrite SerDes cameras in order to provide “navigation capabilities for compute-intensive applications such as AMR, obstacle detection, as well as simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM)”, as well as optional support for Allxon swiftDR OOB Enabler to bring disaster recovery services using “specialized OOB technology” and reduce unplanned downtime.

Axiomtek AIE900-XNX 5G connected fanless Edge AI system will be available for purchase in June 2022. Additional information may be found on the product page and the announcement.
