Nvidia has teamed with Segway-Ninebot to launch a robotics development platform to accelerate the development and deployment of Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs).

The Nova Carter AMR gets its mobility from Segway’s RMP Lite 220 chassis and is powered by Nvidia’s chips, algorithms and sensors with Segway handling their integration. It also has 360-degree perception thanks to cameras and lidar, as well as high-performance computing modules, sensors, autonomous driving development software and tools. 

Once integrated into an AMR, the platform creates a robot that is ready to use out of the box, capable of completing a variety of tasks including surround perception, 3D mapping and autonomous navigation.

It also features high-performance computing modules, multiple sensors and “powerful autonomous driving development software and tools” to support the development of autonomous driving technology, making the training and deployment of AMR fleets more streamlined and efficient. 

Additionally, the Nova Carter AMR has data-collection capabilities, allowing it to map test areas such as warehouses or factories and leveraging this data for  autonomous operations. 

“Nova Carter expedites the transition from manual forklift and guided vehicles to full autonomy,” according to Segways website. “With its rich sensor portfolio, powerful AI compute capabilities, and customization, Nova Carter can operate safely among humans in highly dynamic, unstructured environments.
