PC & CPU Requirements

Computers, mini PCs and other developer boards come with either x86 or ARM64 chips. Click next to see hardware that has been tried and tested with Seirios
Processing power is crucial to run Seirios RNS with your robot. With more sensors installed, more computing powered will be required to be allocated - and less will be available for Seirios
The following are recommended PC/board specifications to take advantage of every feature available on Seirios RNS
  • PC with x86 processor (4 cores with 8 threads @ >3.1GhZ) OR ARM64 (8 cores)
  • 8GB DDR4 RAM
  • 256GB SSD
  • Ubuntu 20.04 & ROS Noetic (x86) OR Ubuntu 18.04 & ROS Melodic (ARM64)
  • WiFi connectivity 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
The following pages are specific PCs and developer boards that we have tested with Seirios RNS
x86-64 systems are used widely in most robotic systems and robots with compact form PCs. It has high computing power and support multiple hardware sensors connected to it.
Be sure that your robotic system has a large enough battery to accommodate its operations
