SparkFun Machine Learning @ Home Kit for NVIDIA Jetson Nano

We have all been spending a lot of time at home this past year! We have all been staring at the walls, looking at the pile of dishes and wondering what to do with our time and effort.

With the Machine Learning @ Home Kit for the NVIDIA Jetson Nano we are killing two birds with one stone for you. The first is helping you take the next step in exploring machine learning with the NVIDIA Jetson Nano and SparkFun Qwiic Ecosystem and the second and more important bird is trying to make your life around your home just a little easier by making Machine Learning work for you.

This kit is designed as an extension kit of the NVIDIA DLI Course Kit that acts as an introduction to Getting Started with AI on Jetson Nano. The kit brings machine output and interaction into the picture through a number of different SparkFun Qwiic boards for you to turn machine learning into machine working!

The kit also includes a PDF Hookup Guide (coming soon) that walks you through three different machine learning applications that will help you around the home as well as teach the basics of taking the examples of machine learning you find in the DLI Course and working towards deploying those projects beyond an example in Jupyter Notebooks!

Pick up this kit, extend your knowledge around Machine Learning and make your home a little smarter.

  • Project Examples:
    • Machine Learning Pet Feeder
    • Smart Kitchen Assistant
    • Personalized lighting / appliance controls

Working with Qwiic on a Jetson Nano through Jupyter Notebooks

April 23, 2020

We created a few Jupyter Notebooks to make using our Qwiic boards with your Jetson Nano even easier!

Core Skill: DIY

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

1 DIY

Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

4 Programming

Skill Level: Experienced - You will require a firm understanding of programming, the programming toolchain, and may have to make decisions on programming software or language. You may need to decipher a proprietary or specialized communication protocol. A logic analyzer might be necessary.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.
