Get Your Hands on Robots and Drones at SX Create 2016

by Lynette Farinas

Attention, hardware hackers and makers: We’re bringing the best of DIY intelligence to SX Create this weekend.

Our Embedded Computing team is heading to Austin, Texas, March 11-13, with some of our favorite robots, drones and industry experts in tow to join the other exhibitors and enthusiasts shaping the future of new technologies.

Whether you booked tickets months in advance or need a little nudge to secure a last-minute flight to SX Create, here’s what to expect from NVIDIA.

We’ll be showcasing the power Jetson TX1 brings to embedded computing applications at our booth at the Palmer Events Center and at a panel discussion about the future of DIY intelligence powered by maker-friendly hardware.

Learn about the impact of deep learning on robotics with our own TX1-powered robot, Turbo 2. See live demonstrations of our VisionWorks software development package for computer vision and image processing solutions for robotics, drones, intelligent video analytics and more.

Plus, our booth will host two amazing partner companies that use Jetson. Barcelona-based Herta Security will share cutting-edge facial recognition solutions that harness Jetson’s visual computing process for intelligent analytics. And Stereolabs, out of San Francisco, will present its groundbreaking ZED 3D camera and highlight its applications for environment mapping.

Besides the demos and experts at our booth, we’ll have a mini-theater featuring five daily sessions designed to get you up and running – or rather, making – with Jetson:

  • NVIDIA Jetson and Tools
  • NVIDIA Deep Learning
  • Building the Jetson Turbo 2
  • Adding Vision to your Robot
  • Adding Stereovision to Your Bot (Co-hosted with Stereolabs)

That’s not all. On Sunday, March 13, at 3:30 pm, we’ll take the SX Create Stage as part of a “DIY Intelligence” session. Jerry Chen, one of our resident deep learning experts, will join a panel discussing a future where artificial intelligence is well within the reach of makers, researchers and startups. It’s a future NVIDIA is working toward with low-cost, high-performance tools like the Jetson TX1 Developer Kit.

While you’re checking out everything our booth has to offer, be sure to enter a raffle with prizes including an NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV, SHIELD Tablet and, of course, a Jetson TX1 Dev Kit. Swing on by this Friday through Sunday.
