MXcarkit Specifications

Start straight away with the MXcarkit!

The basic version of the MXcarkit is the ideal first step into the world of autonomous driving research. Alternatively, you can opt for a Jetson NX with more computing power. For an additional charge, there are several optional updates, such as a lidar, vehicle illumination and ultrasonic sensors.
