Introduction to Embedded Supercomputing

What is Embedded Supercomputing ?

Embedded Supercomputing brings high performance computing capacity to devices and applications which need to process large amount of data but have limitations of power and space.

Jetson TK1 is an embedded supercomputer with a 192 core GPU, an ARM CPU and a power consumption of 5 watts and can integrate with any kind of embedded applications. For example, the IIT Bombay's autonomous vehicle team has fit it into their car and uses it for path planning and image processing.
