Talking NVIDIA Jetson TX1

Hello FIRST teams from NVIDIA Jetson team! Happy kickoff day to everyone!



We're truly excited to be involved in FIRST season 2016. Here's our FIRST landing page: http://developer.nvidia.com/FIRST

If you are interested in using Jetson TX1 for your robot, we are offering all teams a $299 discount for Jetson TX1. You can obtain your discount code through here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/edu-discount.html The discount codes are send out every Mon/Wed/Fri.

Also, Jetson TK1 is included in the Kit of Parts. You can obtain with FIRST credits.

NVIDIA's Jetson platform includes powerful software libraries like GPU-accelerated OpenCV, VisionWorks, and cuDNN/Caffe for deep learning. Leverage them to unleash the 1TFLOP+ of compute capability offered by JTX1 module and power your robot with smarter brains and advanced onboard autonomy.

We'll keep an eye here on ChiefDelphi to help out anyone with assistance, but also feel free to post board-specific tech support questions on NVIDIA's Developer Forums to quickly tap into the knowledge base of the Jetson community.

Our pals over at Stereolabs are also offering a discount for FIRST teams on their ZED depth camera, which uses GPU acceleration and easily integrates with both Jetson TX1 and TK1. Read more about it here: http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=141011

Like yourselves, we're also robot builders and tinkerers over here at NVIDIA, and nothing gets us more fired up then helping others enable their work. Hope to meet each of you out on the circuit and good luck!

Smile Re: NVIDIA Jetson TX1

Thanks Dustin for citing us! The Jetson TX1 is indeed the perfect companion board for the ZED.

As you said, we'll offering during the competition a special price for FRC teams who want to use the ZED 3D camera for their robots. You can find more details here on our blog.

Also, we would like to thank Team 900 (Zebracorns) who integrated the ZED during offseason and published their code here. http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/sh...stcount1506812
Great job guys!

During the competition, we’ll be here to help you, so feel free to contact our support team if you need anything. We wish you the best of luck for the upcoming Stronghold challenge!

Re: NVIDIA Jetson TX1

Any ideas on feasibility of getting labview(vision module specifically) running on the tx1 or tk1?

We're looking at using a ZED(http://www.stereolabs.com) camera with either a tk1 or tx1 and am already familiar with labview vision so if possibly would want to explore that path.

Sadly the TX1 is not a supported LabVIEW platform. OpenCV works great though!

Re: NVIDIA Jetson TX1

Does anyone know about getting these boards discounted internationally?

The website seems to only cater for US educational institutions.

Go to the Nvidia site and get in touch. They should be able to help you. I've seen some comments about international discounts on the Nvidia developer forums as well.

Re: NVIDIA Jetson TX1

The international academic discounts should be rolled out shortly, however for now we can help those FIRST teams directly. I send timytamy a PM.

Re: NVIDIA Jetson TX1

I have submitted two requests for the TX1 both under my school district email and personal email and have not heard anything since last Sunday.

Re: NVIDIA Jetson TX1

Sorry for the delay, looking into the issue why these weren't already sent out. I e-mailed you the code from your entry.

ZED was brought up in one of our teams brainstorms. Unfortunately, at $449 it exceeds the $400 price maximum for an individual component.

The only stereo camera I've found under that is the $399 Leopard Imaging camera.
