The SparkFun JetBot AI Kit is a robot platform powered by the Jetson Nano Developer Kit by NVIDIA. This SparkFun kit is based on the open-source NVIDIA JetBot! We understand that not everyone has access to multiple 3D printers on each floor, and a whole warehouse of electronics so we wanted to build a kit from ready to assemble parts to get you up and running as quickly as possible. The SparkFun JetBot AI Kit is a great launchpad for creating entirely new AI projects for makers, students and enthusiasts who are interested in learning AI and building fun applications. It's straightforward to set up and use and is compatible with many popular accessories.
The NVIDIA Jetson Nano is a low cost AI computer designed for learners and developers. The SparkFun JetBot AI Robot is a cool kit powered by Jetson Nano that comes with everything you need to learn practical AI applications such as object tracking and collision avoidance. The robot is compatible with popular AI frameworks such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, Caffe, and MXNet.
The open-source JetBot AI robot platform gives makers, students, and enthusiasts everything they need to build creative, fun, smart AI applications. It's powered by the small but mighty NVIDIA Jetson Nano AI computer, which supports multiple sensors and neural networks in parallel for object recognition, collision avoidance, and more. All in a variety of cool configurations that let you build something that's uniquely you. Try JetBot for yourself and see where it takes you.
A group of hackers have built a robot that can crack a safe. A team from SparkFun Electronics in Colorado took their robot to the underground hacking convention, Def Con in Las Vegas. They bought a SentrySafe safe the day before the demonstration and opened it onstage Friday. The robot took about 30 minutes to crack the safe, discovering the combination was 51.36.93. The audience clapped and cheered when the safe was opened.
The hexapod robot in the foreground was constructed by Larry Watkins and Todd Heinze. In the background, a robot constructed by Ben Greer ambles along. The challenge of the Autonomous Vehicle Competition, hosted by hobbyist electronics vendor SparkFun at its Boulder, Colorado, headquarters, seems simple enough: Build a robot that can navigate itself around the company's parking lot. Though the AVC course is dotted with small obstacles, it's really just one lap -- a distance of less than 900 feet. But for the majority of competitors, it feels more like the path into Mordor.
