Open source SOAFEE Open AD Kit with arm64 ROS 2 dev workstations

AVA Dev Platform by ADLINK Technology, Ampere Computing, Arm for cloud native robotics development with Open Robotics ROS 2, Eclipse foundation ROS middleware Cyclone DDS w iceoryx & Zenoh described here and Autoware Foundation. ADLINK AVA is the development platform for SOAFEE and Open AD Kit.

ADLINK AVA Dev Platform is available with Ampere Altra 32, 64, 80-core and testing is already underway with larger CPU that is 6x more powerful than the x86 ADLINK AVA-3501 in the Indy Autonomous Challenge racecars. NVIDIA GPUs are supported and we think AVA is a great developer workstation for anyone using Jetson. ADLINK has been shipping these AVA workstations to autonomous driving developers and Arm engineers since August.

AVA Dev Platform launch partners and customers include Arm, ADLINK, Ampere, Apex.AI, AutoCore, Capgemini Engineering, Continental, CARIAD, Green Hills Software, Linaro, Marvell, MIH Consortium (Foxconn), Red Hat, SUSE, Tier IV, Volkswagen, Woven Planet (Toyota Research), Zing Robotics.

“SOAFEE” Scalable Open Architecture For Embedded Edge info here. It fits robotics well, though you’ll see that autonomous driving and software-defined vehicles are the first marketing push.

Why are you promoting this specific computer here?

giving a heads up about open source SOAFEE, Open AD Kit with ROS 2 and development HW we created to support those. Wasn’t sure which category to put it in.
