The Kria KR260 Robotics Starter Kit is a scalable and out-of-the-box development platform for robotics. It provides a seamless path to production deployment with the existing AMD-Xilinx Kria K26 adaptive production SOMs. The SOM starter kit enables rapid development of hardware-accelerated applications for robotics, machine vision and industrial communication and control. The KR260 delivers nearly a 5-times productivity gain, up to 8 times better performance/watt and 3.5 times lower latency compared to competitive GPU solutions.


MP1000R Autonomous Mobile Robot

Using Bosch Rexroth’s ROKIT Locator Software, the MP1000R, made in collaboration with mobile robotics company Geek+, can navigate autonomously in highly dynamic environments without additional infrastructure. The MP1000R is a scalable solution which can replace manual forklifts and tuggers, leading to improved efficiency and safety. The MP1000R can safely and autonomously transport materials on pallets or shelves within a facility with flexibility similar to human-operated equipment and has a max payload of 1000 kilograms.

The new UR20 cobot can handle heavier loads up to 20 kg with a greater reach of 1750mm. It’s the lightest robot on the market in its payload and reach class, weighing only 64 kg with a small footprint of about 245 mm. The cobot features an all-new joint design, increasing all joint torques approximately 25%, joint speeds by as much as 65%, and TCP speed of 100%. The updated software brings smoother motion and increased uptime.
