The URP Platform enables and accelerates developments spanning a breadth of domains including : image processing and compression with two high-res cameras, multi-motor drive with high-efficiency high-RPM controller IP, inertial measurement with position and environmental sensors, autonomous navigation and control, algorithms and autopilot, high performance low latency deterministic embedded compute, algorithm acceleration using Software programing of PL kernels.
The URP is a feature-rich, highly-integrated, small form-factor, off-the-shelf solution. The UAV and Robotics Platform consists of a processing board with integrated and versatile sensors, Linux based software stack, FPGA reference design and a comprehensive user application. It supports autopilot integration and interfaces with the Robot OS. All sensors required for autonomous operation are integrated on the board. Additional functionalities, like ultrasound and radar/lidar type of sensors, can be integrated easily. Extending the board with other processor boards is also relatively easy due to the high-performance board-to-board connectivity. Software defined radio and other desired features can also be integrated easily. For example, on-chip 4K video stream capture, manipulation and H264/265 compression are ready to use.
