By Chrissie Cluney July 29, 2020

Qualcomm Technologies has created the Qualcomm Robotics RB5 platform.

Utilizing the successful Qualcomm Robotics RB3 platform and its broad adoption of robotics and drone products available, the Qualcomm Robotics RB5 platform is comprised of an extensive set of hardware, software and development tools. This platform is the first to bring together the Qualcomm Technologies’ expertise in 5G and AI to empower developers and manufacturers to create the next generation of high-compute, low-power robots and drones. This product is aimed to the consumer, enterprise, defense, industrial and professional service sectors.

“Qualcomm Technologies is the world’s leading wireless technology innovator with a strong foundation in AI, mobile computing and connectivity. By applying its deep-rooted mobile systems expertise to the robotics industry, Qualcomm Technologies is helping to enable the creation of more powerful, secure, and intelligent robots than ever before,” said Dev Singh, senior director, business development and head of autonomous robotics, drones and intelligent machines, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “With the Qualcomm Robotics RB5 platform, Qualcomm Technologies will help accelerate growth in a wide array of robotics segments such as autonomous mobile robots (AMR), delivery, inspection, inventory, industrial, collaborative robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), enabling Industry 4.0 robotics use cases, and laying the foundation for the UAV Traffic Management (UTM) space.”

Qualcomm Robotics RB5 Development Kit assists developers to have the customization and flexibility they need to make their visions a commercial reality. Presently, the company has engaged many leading companies that have endorsed the Qualcomm Robotics RB5 platform. This includes over twenty early adopters in the process of evaluating the platform. Additionally, thirty plus ecosystem players are developing necessary hardware and software to enable various robotics applications.

“We are very excited to support the Qualcomm Robotics RB5 platform as the latest addition to the 96Boards.AI initiative,” said Dr. Yang Zhang, director, 96Boards. “Qualcomm Robotics RB5 featuring QRB5165 Robotics Processor, is the first 96Boards compliant platform offering 5G, AI, Heterogeneous Computing, Computer Vision Engine, Advanced ISP Multi-Camera Concurrency for a large range of applications. With our partners, we believe this product will revolutionize the robotic and drone market as we know today. We are pleased to see our member Qualcomm Technologies continue to deliver its commitment to the wider developer ecosystem, with a clear path for production.”
