Intel Euclid: Ideal platform for Robotics and Ubuntu Linux powers it

Intel announced Euclid development kit for robotics. It is Ubuntu Linux 16.04 based system. One can run, monitor and manage their robotics apps with the web interface. The software works with any ROS-based (Robotics Operating System) robot such as Arduino to build sensing capabilities in your project. You can use sensors and cameras to control a robot.

ADVERTISEMENTS

From the Intel page:

The Intel Euclid Developers Kit features the integration of Intel® RealSense™ depth camera technology and a motion camera with an Intel® Atom™ x7-Z8700 Quad core CPU to produce an all-in-one compute and depth camera device in a compact and sleek package. The Intel Euclid Developers Kit is designed to be operable out of the box with pre-installed software including an Ubuntu® operating system.

The Intel Euclid Development Kit is ideal for the robotics community, software developers, makers and other users that desire depth sensing, compute and communications in a mobile and compact package.

    Err.. where is the GPIO? Surely if its a robotics platform as claimed it should be bristling with GPIO pins to attach sensors, i2c buses, LEDs, switches and other roboticky goodness. Sorry Mr Intel, it looks like yet another failed “Pi Killer” to me.
