Wireless networking capabilities are added to a Jetson TK1 using an Intel 7260 mini PCIe card. This video covers the installation, setup and demonstration of the Intel 7260. The 7260 is also compared to a $10 USB wireless dongle from Edimax.
The Jetson is running the custom kernel “Grinch” 19.3.6 for Jetson TK1 which enables wireless goodness.

NVIDIA rolls out Jetson TX2 platform for drones and robots
NVIDIA has unveiled Jetson TX1’s successor at an event today, and it was developed to run doubly as fast while drawing under 7.5 watts of power. The item aptly called Jetson TX2 is an AI platform for drones, robots, smart cams and other embedded devices. It can be utilized for navigation, image and speech recognition, among other purposes. Because it’s much more powerful than its predecessor and was specifically made for “edge computing” — data processing at or near the source in place of in the cloud or a data center — it can be leader to speedier, cleverer plus more accurate equipment.
Deepu Talla, vice president and gm of the Tegra business at NVIDIA, said:
“Jetson TX2 brings solid AI capacities at the edge, making possible a brand new class of intelligent machines. These devices will empower intelligent video analytics which maintain our cities cleverer and less hazardous, new types of robots which boost manufacturing, and new collaboration which helps make great distance career better.”
The chipmaker furthermore has stated that around a dozen partner enterprises are already applying the TX2 in a different way. Cisco is utilizing the platform for an all-in-one collaboration device which enables screen sharing, interactive whiteboarding and interactive video. An enterprise called Fellow Robots depends on TX2 to record on-shelf stock and to find goods and quantity in store. The platform moreover permits Live Planet to stitch 4K 360-degree videos for live streaming. It strengths the vision-based algorithms in a small-yet-powerful MIT drone, as well.
NVIDIA is already taking pre-orders for the TX2 Developer Kit in the United States Of America and European countries, with other zones to follow. It’ll set you back $599 to acquire the carrier-board-and-module combo, but you are going to at least get the package when it gets started shipping on March 14th. The module-only TX2 will run you $399, nonetheless it won’t get started shipping until someday in the 2nd quarter. NVIDIA will in addition keep promoting the TX1 Developer Kit for $499.
