2024/7/2 10:30

New Taipei City, Taiwan, July 2, 2024 - Vecow Co., Ltd., a team of global embedded experts, and Kudan, a leading provider of real-time simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) software, today announced a progressive milestone in their partnership to release Vecow’s Turnkey SLAM Kit (VTK SLAM Kit). This collaboration integrates Vecow’s Ultra-compact Fanless System with additional sensors and IMUs, infused with Kudan’s SLAM technologies. This strategic partnership aims to meet the growing demand for solutions that navigate and map unknown environments.

 

 

The Vecow VTK is a comprehensive turnkey solution designed to facilitate AI (Artificial Intelligence) and AP (Artificial Perception) applications at the edge, including traffic vision, surveillance, and factory automation which are realized by previously released VTK Traffic Vision and VTK Public Security solutions. The solution supports real-time AI inferencing for video analytics, object recognition, and data processing, enabling businesses to make swift and precise informed decisions.

 

 

Vecow remains at the forefront of innovation, continuously enhancing the VTK solution. The latest addition, the Vecow VTK SLAM Kit, a ROS (Robot Operating System)-based system, is optimized for robotics, autonomous vehicles, and RTLS (Real Time Location System) offering precision positioning, real-time 3D mapping, and enhanced safety features.

 

The VTK SLAM Kit showcases advanced hardware and software integrating, featuring the Vecow Ultra-compact Fanless System - SPC-7100 with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7/i5 processor, Movella Xsens MTI-670 IMU, Intel® RealSense™ Depth Camera D455, and Ouster OS0-32 Lidar. Supported by Kudan’s SLAM software, this kit delivers enhanced performance and unlocking capabilities beyond traditional localization approaches.

 

Solution Highlights:

  • 3D-LiDAR based SLAM or Visual/camera based SLAM software is pre-installed for mapping and positioning functionalities.
  • Capable for multi-sensor fusion, including IMU, GNSS, Wheel Odometry, 2D-LiDAR, multiple cameras or multiple 3D-LiDARs
  • Quickly access to best-in-class localization and mapping technology, and help accelerate development of products and solutions that needs accurate and reliable position tracking in both indoor and outdoor environments.
  • Perpetual software license is granted. User can use the solution kit without time limitation.
