More and more large companies are betting on IoT and the world of robotics. So much so that the last to offer something to this market is Intel itself. The large processor company is betting on IoT but also on other markets. And as a result of this experience, Intel has released the Euclid Developers Kit. This kit is a development pack that helps the developer to create a better robot or prototype of it.
In essence Euclid Developers Kit is nothing more than a computer that works as a brain for robots, but there are some differences from other minipcs. One of these differences is the sound and microphone emission. Something not very substantial but that Euclid Developers Kit has and allows to improve the reception of orders and data entry.
Euclid Developers Kit is here available for developers at the price of $ 399 a kit, a fairly low price for the possibilities it offers, although if we take into account its similarity to a pc, the price is quite logical.
Euclid Developers Kit can work as a powerful minipc with Ubuntu
This robotics kit consists of a plate containing an Intel Atom processor, 4 Gb of ram, 32 Gb of internal storage, wifi, bluetooth, GPS, USB 3.0, microUSB, microHDMI and a 2.000 mAh battery. As you can see, the features of this kit are very similar to those of a powerful smartphone or a high-end tablet, however the purpose is something else.
In terms of software, it seems that Intel has given up on free software and offers Robotics Operative System, an operating system that is based on Ubuntu 16.04.
Intel's product is not very different from other kits, but the success is not in their kits but rather in the possibilities that we can do with these kits, something that seems promising with Euclid Developers Kit, but Will it really be like this?
