Looking at "Jetson Nano " Quad Core ARM64 @1.47GHz with max 4GByte RAM and max 16GByte eMMC.

It comes with a Ubuntu install, so seems like a good match,

Is this memory footprint enough for an autonomus droid with cameras and Lidar ?

This is plenty enough. You can run ROS with GUIs on a Raspberry Pi 3 (with 1 GByte of RAM) using the desktop environment with no problem.

With the desktop environment disabled on my Raspberry Pi 3 I have a 70 Mbyte RAM footprint. If you are going to compile big projects (using multiple jobs with gcc/g++) make sure to create a swap file in case you fill the RAM!
