Brain Description

The farm-ng Brain brings supercomputer performance to the edge, in a ruggedized packaged designed for the harshest environments.  The Brain contains a NVIDIA Xavier NX which has up to 21 TOPS of hardware accelerated computing power for machine learning and AI applications, and paired it with a touch-screen display designed to be outdoor-visible, creating both a user-interface and sensor hub in a single, waterproof package.  This provides quick entry into the world of artificial intelligence, and a single packaged solution for developing tools and interfaces for outdoor autonomy.  

Includes CANbus, USB, and GIGe ethernet bus options.
