NVIDIA Jetson GPU Meetup
June 15, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
The NVIDIA Jetson Interest Group is interested in understanding and using the NVIDIA Jetson GPUs (TK1, TX1 and TX2). These GPUs are specialized pieces of hardware that can do high speed image processing as well as execute the newest neural networks. They are designed for low power operation so they can be used in embedded systems like cars, robots and drones.
In fact the Nvidia Jetson TX1 is the chip that powers the amazing Skydio drone (https://www.skydio.com/). This drone does all of its maneuvering using a series of 6 pairs of navigation cameras and a ton of video/image processing on the TX1. There is a 13th camera to record the user and I suspect it is processed by the TX1 as well.
The TX2 chip is at the heart of the Open Source Robotics Foundation’s robot stereo camera system: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1NCimNJTRP6g3ESWhmaqi4t3dOprq7Yvne_JLeCTt3io (on GitHub https://github.com/osrf/ovc).
While this group is initially looking at the NVIDIA Jetson family of GPUs, most of our discussions will be completely general and appropriate to anyone interested in programming or using NVIDIA GPUs of any flavor.
