In the future, robots will deliver all kinds of things for us. Postmates has just showcased its new NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Equipped Delivery Robot at GTC. Serve can carry 50 pounds of good within a range of 30 miles. It runs on electric power and moves at walking speed.
Serve has Velodyne LIDAR sensors to understand the world around it in real time. As Zhenyu Guo, Director of Artificial Intelligence at Posmates X explains:
Our team is using TensorFlow for model training, testing and developing. After we train the model in TensorFlow, we convert the model to TensorRT format and we deploy the Xavier platform using NVDLA….By Using FP16 half-precision together with NVDLA we got more than 40x speedup
People can interact with it via its touchscreen display. More info is available here.
