UP Bridge the Gap partners with Intel to offer robotic development kits

12 January, 2023

UP Bridge the Gap has partnered with Intel to release two new generations of robotic development kits to simplify robotics evaluation and development. UP Bridge the Gap is a brand belonging to AAEON, the manufacturer of AI Edge hardware solutions.


Developing and deploying a complete robotics solution is a complicated process that can often take years. Developers face serious challenges when selecting the right components, developing the robotics software, and integrating the software onto the robotics hardware. However, companies want to be able to implement robotic solutions quickly because they have been proven to save money, improve efficiency, and reduce safety risks.

To help address these challenges, UP Bridge the Gap created two new generations of robotic development kits that offer a fully integrated four-wheeled robot prototype that can move omnidirectionally, sense and map its environment, avoid obstacles, and detect people and objects.

“We developed a complete solution so customers do not have to start from scratch,” says Daniele Cleri, AI and IoT senior software architect at AAEON Europe. “The hardware and software are already integrated within the kit to allow a seamless start for the developers. Customers can have a working robot to start from with the basic functionalities already implemented. Then, they can easily customise the robot to their specific use case and start deploying it right away.”

The robotic development kits are a complete package that come with the compute unit, vision unit (Intel RealSense Depth Camera D435i), a motion unit (includes a motor control board, four motors, and four mecanum wheels), and the Intel Edge Insights for Autonomous Mobile Robots (Intel EI for AMR) software development kit. Every component works seamlessly together to simplify the robotics development experience.

Developers can choose between two computer units to power the robotic development kit: UP Xtreme i11 or UP Squared 6000. For high-performance and artificial intelligence applications, developers can choose the UP Xtreme i11 Robotic Development Kit, powered by the 11th Generation Intel Core processors with Iris Xe graphics. For impressive power efficiency and extended battery power, developers can choose the UP Squared 6000 Robotic Development Kit, powered by the latest Intel Atom x6000E Series processors.

The Intel RealSense depth camera D435i has an inertial measurement unit (IMU) inside, which opens the door for rudimentary SLAM and tracking applications, allowing for better pointcloud alignment. The IMU allows applications to refine location awareness in any situation where the robot moves.
