RGo Robotics and Theobroma Systems Announce a New Solution for Intelligent Robots

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., USA / VIENNA, Austria - (March 07, 2024) – RGo Robotics (RGo), a pioneer in artificial perception for mobile machines, and Theobroma Systems, a CHERRY Group company and a provider of high-quality System-on-Modules and Single-Board Computers for a wide range of applications, have announced the immediate availability of an integrated solution powered by RGo’s Perception Engine™ on Theobroma’s JAGUAR board.

The integrated solution is based on Theobroma’s new JAGUAR Single-Board Computer SBC-RK3588-AMR. JAGUAR has been designed and optimized, in terms of connectivity, real-time processing power, memory and energy efficiency for advanced robotics applications powered by AI and visual perception. The integrated solution can be quickly and effortlessly integrated into a wide range of industrial robots such as autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and automated guided vehicles (AGVs), as well as professional service robots such as those used in transportation, hospitality and agriculture.

RGo’s Perception Engine is fully integrated into JAGUAR. Installations on customer platforms demonstrate the groundbreaking capabilities of the joint solution. It can track the robot pose, location and heading robustly and reliably to centimeter-scale accuracy. It works reliably in dynamic, unstructured or repetitive environments, indoors and outdoors, and on fast-moving machines such as forklifts and tugger carts. The technical advantages of JAGUAR together with RGo’s software enable robot manufacturers to quickly upgrade to state-of-the-art visual perception.

JAGUAR incorporates Rockchip’s RK3588 SoC that features a powerful octa-core CPU, a Mali G610 GPU and an NPU with up to 6 TOPs and supports up to four cost-effective MIPI CSI cameras.

“The new JAGUAR platform with our Perception Engine allows robot manufacturers to easily upgrade their machine with visual perception. The hardware is designed for industrial mobile robots and has all the functionality and connectors needed for the entirety of the robotic solution’s lifecycle, from initial integration to series production. Its reliability, affordability and ease of integration makes the solution an appealing option for robot manufacturers when considering whether to use visual perception,” says RGo’s CEO and co-founder, Amir Bousani. “The platform is powerful enough to run our advanced perception technology and can leave room for the robot control software.”

“Theobroma Systems, a CHERRY Group company, has a proven history of reliable, high-quality embedded systems for many industries. Both the development and production of JAGUAR are carried out by a closely coordinated, experienced team in Vienna in the very heart of Europe. This ensures seamless integration of software and hardware, and top manufacturing quality at a highly competitive price, making JAGUAR the perfect platform for RGo’s Perception Engine in a wide range of robotic products. In this way, the joint solution offers a perfect balance between performance and cost, enabling manufacturers of robots and industrial automation machines to rapidly open up new business areas with innovative products,” says Dr. Stefan Roth, managing director at Theobroma Systems.

The RGo team will be available to answer questions at Modex 2024 in Hall A, Booth 9518 (March 11-14 at the Atlanta Expo Center) and at LogiMAT in Hall 6, Stand D25 (March 19-21 at the Stuttgart Convention Center).
