NVidia Jetson TX1 is a specialized developer kit for running a powerful GPU as an embedded device for robots, UAV and specialized platforms. I envision it's usage in field trucks for intermodal, utilities, telecommunications, delivery services, government and other industries with field vehicles.
Installation and Setup
You will need a workstation running Ubuntu 16 with enough disk space and network access. This will be to download all the software and push it over a network to your NVidia Jetson TX1. You can download Ubuntu here (https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop). Fortunately I had a MiniPC with 4GB of RAM that reformatted with Ubuntu to be the host PC to build my Jetson. You cannot run this from a Mac or Windows machine.
You will need a monitor, mouse and keyboard for your host machine and a set for your NVIdia Jetson.
First step boot to your NVidia Jetson and set up WiFi networking and make sure your monitor, keyboards and mouse work.
