Vecow Unveils VTS-1000 Time Sync Box Tailored for Mission-crucial Applications in Mobile Robots and Autonomous Vehicles

POSTED 01/02/2024

Vecow Co., Ltd., a team of global embedded experts, today announced the launch of the Time Sync Box designed to address the growing demands for multi-sensor synchronization. The VTS-1000 empowers a wide range of edge applications, from autonomous and manufacturing to AIoT/Industry 4.0. Running on a powerful FPGA and featuring Vecow Time Sync Technology, the VTS-1000 delivers exceptional driving safety, navigation accuracy, and reliability, facilitating mission-crucial for autonomous vehicles and robots.

 

Vecow VTS-1000 is powered by Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC and is paired with the Vecow innovative three key technologies – Time Winding, Time Stamping, and Time Keeping. These technologies will improve multi-sensor synchronization, perception, precision, and positioning capabilities. Time Winding ensures the synchronization of internal clocks for each sensor and then outputs signals in the required time format to the Time Stamping. Time Keeping provides continuous time information unaffected by GNSS reception conditions or interference, thus avoiding issues with time format output.

 

To enhance the integration of synchronization capabilities for sensors and controllers, the VTS-1000 supports tools such as the daisy chain, enabling the expansion of synchronization channels for sensor nodes and controllers. It integrates dual GNSS antennas and IMU yaw fusion algorithm, ensuring reliable information output through the Ethernet port. Python, one of the most popular entry-level programming languages, provides a user-friendly tool that enables developers to seamlessly integrate systems and configure synchronization protocols and frequency based on sensor requirements.

 

“I am thrilled to introduce the VTS-1000 Time Sync Box – an innovative solution meeting the growing demands of the autonomous vehicles and robotics industries, “said Thomas Su, Vice President at Vecow. “The VTS-1000 Time Sync box acts like modular building blocks that seamlessly integrate cutting-edge hardware and software features. This redefine the landscape of advanced applications. Moreover, the VTS-1000 enhances robot perception, precision, and positional capabilities, making it well suited for navigating the complexities of dynamic outdoor environments.”

 

“The launch of the VTS-1000 functions as critical addition to our Time Sync Solutions,” said Joseph Huang, Sales Lead at Vecow. “With the trend in sensor deployments in IoT use cases, we observe challenges associated with multi-sensor synchronization. Thus, we believe the VTS-1000 plays an important role in aligning data generated by the robot’s sensors, such as LiDAR, Camera, and GPS. It is capable of meeting our global partner’s needs."
