Qualcomm Technologies has launched its Robotics RB5 platform, an advanced and comprehensive offering designed specifically for robotics.

The platform is the first of its kind to bring together the company’s expertise in 5G and artificial intelligence (AI) to empower developers and manufacturers to create the next generation of high-compute, low-power robots and drones for consumers, enterprises, defense, industrial and professional service sectors.

The Qualcomm Robotics RB5 Development kit helps ensure developers have the customisation and flexibility required to make their vision a commercial reality.

The platform’s processor enables AI, machine learning, heterogenous computing, enhanced computer vision, multi-camera concurrency with advanced ISPs.

The platform will have 4G and 5G connectivity speeds via a companion module.
