The TurtleBot3 Burger is a popular Robot Operating System (ROS) platform retrofitted with an Ultra96-V2 board, upgrading the capability from the Raspberry Pi board. Using Xilinx SDSoC and Vivado HLS tools, a compute intensive portion of the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm is accelerated within Xilinx Programmable Logic and accessed via a ROSstyle abstraction layer for the hardware accelerator.
