Autonomous control & robotics

The UAV and Robotics Platform (URP) is designed to meet typical processing requirements encountered when designing robotics and UAV applications. It is a Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ based platform and therefore has a broad spectrum of processing capabilities. The board combines a small form factor with integrated functionalities of sensors-on-board, software and FPGA logic. With its motor control units, position sensors, obstacle detection interfaces and communication resources the URP can be used for many applications.

Key features

  • Support for robotics and aerial and driving applications

Product description

The UAV and Robotics Platform is a highly integrated solution. It is reliable, powerful and adaptable. The 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.

The URP board is developed in close collaboration with Xilinx as a commercial end-product or as a development kit for rapid prototyping. The board supports the ZU4/5/7 variants of the Zynq Ultrascale+ family of Xilinx System-on-Chips.
