Robotics RB3 Platform

A dedicated robotics platform designed to accelerate computing and connectivity capabilities for consumer and industrial robotics.

The Qualcomm® Robotics RB3 Platform supports the development of smart, power-efficient, and cost-effective robots. The Qualcomm Robotics RB3 platform uses heterogeneous computing and Qualcomm® Artificial (AI) Engine to support on-device machine learning, computer vision, robust security, multimedia, Wi-Fi, and cellular connectivity capabilities. It is based on the Qualcomm® SDA845/Qualcomm® SDM845 SoC.

Comprised of a comprehensive set of hardware, software, and development tools, the Qualcomm Robotics RB3 platform is designed to help manufacturers and developers create robotic products, ranging from large industrial and enterprise robots to small battery-operated ones with challenging power and thermal dissipation requirements.

From development board offerings for prototyping, to off-the-shelf system-on-module (SoM) solutions to speed commercialization, to flexibility for chip-on-board designs, the Qualcomm Robotics RB3 offers flexible options for development and commercialization.
