Introducing substantial innovations to outdoor autonomous mobile robot technology, the new RBX-I2000 robot controller expands what’s possible in the era of Industry 4.0. The first robot controller with integrated time synchronization capabilities, the RBX-I2000 offers precise, centimeter-level positional accuracy in real-time by providing multichannel synchronization with Velodyne, Xsens and stereo cameras. Equipped with the 11th Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3/Celeron® Processor SoC, the RBX-I2000 also provides fast, accurate algorithmic processing and Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics for a more sophisticated and versatile device.
The RBX-I2000 is the only robot controller that contains integrated, hardware-based time synchronization capabilities, with an I/O equipped with four 1PPS and ToD output ports to improve sensor fusion on two connectors. As a result, the RBX-I2000 has a substantial advantage over devices relying on software-based time synchronization, reducing the controller’s latency from 100 ~ 200 microseconds to approximately 20 nanoseconds.
Centimeter-Level Positional Accuracy
With sophisticated 4-channel sync ports, the RBX-I2000 is able to provide more precise positional accuracy data via a wider range of sensors, with each port supporting two channels of 9600bps and 115200bps. This, along with T-BOX time synchronization and built-in Xsens MTi-670 9-axis IMU support allows the robot controller to utilize Movella™ Xsens RTK to produce centimeter-level positional data, along with signal data from the RBX-I2000’s integrated 3D LIDAR SLAM script.
Exceptional Processing Power and Graphic Sophistication
Supporting both hardware and software-based time synchronization features, multiple sensors, and a comprehensive interface of ethernet, USB, RS-232/485, and GPIO ports; the RBX-I2000 requires a sophisticated yet powerful CPU. With the 11th Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3/Celeron® Processor SoC, the RBX-I2000 is armed with 4 cores, 8 threads, and Intel Iris Xe Graphics, providing the computing power to support its time and positional accuracy features along with complex algorithm processing.
