April 15, 2016 - AAEON announced that the Intel RealSense Robotic Development Kit will be powered by the UP computer board

The depth-sensing camera, Intel RealSense R200, can recognize items and determine the size, shape and contours of an object. This development kit supports Linux for the first time and provides API’s which interface with ROS (Robotics Operating System) in a cross platform. 

The UP board was selected to be a part of the development kit because of a wide range of operating systems support, such as Linux (Ubilinux, Ubuntu, Yocto), Android and Microsoft Windows. Due to the versatility of its 40 pin I/O connector, it is compatible with some of the existing Raspberry Pi2 expansions.

In the interim, the UP team is working on validating industrial field bus protocols such as CAN bus, EtherCAT and Profinet generally used to communicate with industrial robots and industrial machineries.
