GE Uses Nvidia’s Tegra K1 for Defense Imaging Applications

While we were at Nvidia’s GTC 2014 in San Jose, Ca this week we were able to check out some really interesting applications of their new Tegra K1 SoC in various applications. One of the most interesting applications was one that Ge Intelligent Platforms had developed using a Tegra K1 Jetson development kit board and a SICK Lidar system. With the combination of the Lidar system, a Tegra K1 Jetson board and a TV, we were able to get a real time tracking of various people’s distance from the lidar system as well as a visual representation of where everyone and everything was within 8 meters.
