Nova Carter

Autonomous Robotics Development Platform

Powered by NVIDIA

Nova Carter, powered by Nova Orin™ reference architecture, is a complete robotics development platform that accelerates the development and deployment of next-generation Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs). Nova Carter integrates the Segway RMP Lite 220 differential drive system, the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin, and a comprehensive sensor suite into a fully functional robot, ready to use out of the box. Thanks to Segway’s years of expertise in robot design and engineering, Nova Carter is packed with design features that are not only ideal for prototyping, but also ensure reliable large-scale deployment.

Nova Carter is engineered to seamlessly integrate with the best-in-class NVIDIA Isaac™ AMR autonomy platform, which enables Nova Carter to proficiently execute tasks such as surround perception, 3D mapping, and autonomous navigation. By harnessing the full range of software offerings in the NVIDIA Isaac™ platform, training and deploying entire fleets of AMRs becomes streamlined.
