Turing Pi 2

Turing Machines Inc., a company that builds compact clusters for edge computing, announced Turing Pi 2 – a new version of the cluster board that supports the recently introduced Raspberry Pi compute modules 4. The new compute modules come in 32 flavors with up to 8 GB of RAM including Bluetooth and WiFi options, and with a price tag starting at $25. The new Turing Pi 2 is a mini ITX 4 nodes cluster with up to 32 GB RAM, Mini PCIe, SATA III, and a Layer-2 Managed Switch with VLAN support. This is a huge difference in performance and I/O options compared to the previous Turing Pi version.

While working on the new cluster design, the company was guided by the following principles, Turing Machines CEO Constantin Alexandrov said, “We wanted to create a minimal cluster unit with options to connect external storage and extension boards like 5G modem. Next, we wanted the cluster unit to be cost-efficient and easy to scale by connecting and forming larger cluster federations. The speed of scale should be higher than connecting regular computers on the network and cheaper than the typical server hardware. Another thing, the minimum cluster units should be compact enough, mobile, energy-efficient, cost-effective, and easy to maintain.”

One of the most exciting updates in the Turing Pi 2 are 2x mini PCIe (Gen 2) and 2x SATA (Gen 3) ports. The first two nodes are exposed to mini PCI express ports, the third node exposed to 2-ports 6Gbps SATA controller. This allows connecting external SSDs to the cluster and using the network file system within the cluster to access the drives from all nodes. Connecting a network card to the 1st node via mini PCIe can give an extra 2.5 Gbps Ethernet port and can make the 1st node perform as a router for other nodes.

Another interesting approach is that with the Turing Pi 2, the company is implementing a unified compute module interface. This will allow connecting compute modules from other manufacturers and also combine different purpose modules to solve specific tasks like machine learning at the edge.

Use cases

Edge infrastructure for hosting applications & services

Turing Pi 2 is designed as a minimal cluster block for consumer / commercial-grade edge computing infrastructure. It gives an affordable and convenient way to migrate applications that are more cost-effective and practical to host at the edge. Cluster blocks can be linked together and form larger clusters. This can be done gradually without interrupting already established processes. Turing V2 can easily be implemented into the existing clusters (cloud or on-premises) and shared using Kubernetes RBAC.

CI/CD

The Turing Pi 2 cluster is architecturally similar to the AWS Graviton instances. The CM4 processor uses the ARMv8 architecture which allows building images and applications for AWS Graviton 1 and 2 instances. If you have existing local or cloud ARM clusters, the Turing Pi cluster can be used for compilation, testing, and continuous deployment to the production clusters.

The Turing Pi clusters already raised attention within the organizations like Red Hat, Rancher (SUSE), Toyota Connected, Sony, Electrolux, University of Berkeley, University of Santa Cruz, and others. The Turing Pi 2 opens a whole range of a new edge computing application and opportunities.

Advanced illumination releases its newest LED light for machine vision, the BL313 Medium Intensity Linear Backlight. This Linear Backlight delivers intense, diffuse illumination in a scalable design. Ideal for backlighting line scan applications and object silhouetting, the BL313 is customizable by peak wavelength and emitting length to provide tailored solutions for user applications.

The BL313 features 17x higher output intensity than the existing BL193, with 226 kLux in a highly uniform dispersion. Pre-engineered scalability translates to emitting lengths in 2” increments, eight peak wavelength options, and an optional washdown feature for harsh environments. The Medium Intensity Linear Backlight is also available with inline or external controls, providing varying power options for both strobed and continuous operation.

This new Linear Backlight is also an ideal diffuse light projector for applications requiring adequate light dispersion to minimize hot-spot reflection on specular surfaces, particularly where space constraints exclude standard diffuse lighting. As with every product from Advanced illumination, the Medium Intensity Linear Backlight has a standard five-year warranty from the original date of purchase.

Founded in 1993, Advanced illumination was the first lighting company to develop and sell an LED lighting product and has continued being a global leader in the machine vision industry ever since.

In these uncertain times, Tompkins Robotics’ lease program enables all companies to immediately capitalize on the benefits of automation.

Tompkins Robotics, a business unit of Tompkins International, has launched a new lease program for its customers, enabling retailers, third-party logistics (3PL) providers and other businesses to rapidly deploy the company’s t-Sort autonomous mobile robot (AMR) solutions with minimal capital expenditures.

Tompkins Robotics’ lease program allows customers to avoid the initial capital expense and also have the option to own the system at the end of the lease. Typical lease lengths are three, five or seven years and can be customized to best fit the customer’s needs.

“E-commerce continues to grow at rapid rates and the recent COVID-19 pandemic has further accelerated this trend, particularly in segments like grocery, which are currently experiencing double digit growth and struggling to meet rapidly evolving consumer demands,” said Mike Futch, president of Tompkins Robotics. “In these uncertain times, our lease program enables all companies to immediately capitalize on the benefits of automation.”

Ideal for small to large distribution operations, t-Sort is a portable, scalable robotic sortation system that operates similar to a tilt tray or crossbelt sorter without a fixed track, with independent robots that move freely along the shortest path to any divert or induction station. It can be used for both unit and parcel sortation in a variety of environments and applications, including e-commerce fulfillment, store replenishment, shipping and returns and retail and postal backrooms. Tompkins Robotics’ AMR suite also features the t-Sort Mini for sorting small and lightweight items and the t-Sort Plus, which is capable of handling items up to 66 pounds—six times the weight of the original t-Sort solution. This summer, the company also released t-Rail, which enables overhead transportation of goods without disruption to floor-level activities.

Robots are already being explored by many businesses as an attractive solution to combat rising costs and address an ongoing labor shortage. In addition to avoiding a large upfront investment, Tompkins Robotics’ lease program offers companies complete portability, unmatched flexibility and the ability to scale as needed. Additional robots can be quickly added or removed as volume fluctuates. The system can also be relocated to a different operation within just a few days—a great advantage for retailers or 3PLs that need to ramp up for peak seasons or unforeseen market changes.
