Syslogic targets AI agricultural apps with Jetson AGX Xavier based PC

May 4, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 235 views

Syslogic’s RPC RSL A3 is a robust AI computer equipped with the Nvidia Jetson AGX Xavier Industrial module and optional 4G/5G support. The RPC RSL A3 was designed for applications that require vision computing, real time sensor fusion and sophisticated control of autonomous machines used in agricultural settings.

To complement its industrial processor module, the RPC RSL A3 successfully meets the requirements for IP67 and IP69 protection ratings. The IP67 and IP69 are one of the highest protection levels against dust, airborne particles, high pressure water and high pressure temperature. Syslogic’s states that their ultra rugged PC is suitable for operation in temperatures that range between –40 °C to +70 °C.


Furthermore, the company ensures internal pressure equalization to avoid dew formation caused by drastic temperature changes. The RPC RS A3 design does not have any moving parts and its enclosure is shock and vibration resistant,

Other robust features include electrically isolated and overload protected digital I/Os (12V-24V input) which is required for vehicles and other mobile systems. The device also offers 2x Gbit Ethernet, 4x Gbit PoE Ethernet and 2x isolated CAN interfaces. 

The wireless connectivity available for the RPC RSL A3 includes 4G with GNSS. Alternatively, the PC can be equipped with 5G and a GNSS module that also supports heading. According to Syslogic, heading is used to determine the rotation angle of a vehicle or machine.
