Bringing AI to the Rugged Edge

Bringing AI to the Rugged Edge

Bridging the gap between sensors and high-performance compute power is a growing challenge, especially in systems where quick, complex decisions are vital.

The concept of “the edge” in embedded systems has taken on new urgency in the federal space. The need to address the burgeoning amount of high-speed, vital data with powerful AI processing for immediate complex decision and reaction could be likened to the idea of stuffing a data center under the seat of a helicopter (if only!). “The edge” can be defined as “where it’s happening” and in government systems, that’s the field. Traditionally, the problem of linking high-speed sensors and actuators with super-powerful AI resources has been addressed with high-speed data communications. But that has serious limitations in terms of field operations where package size, speed, mobility, and reliability are paramount.

PCIe Gen 5 is a key technology for driving transportable or edge AI systems to higher performance, especially those with demanding space, environmental or cooling needs. But AI program managers should evaluate their technology suppliers’ Gen 5 implementations to ensure they fully realize the technology’s benefits.

Poor Thermal Design Will Cripple Truck-Mounted AI for Autonomous Driving
Poor Thermal Design Will Cripple Truck-Mounted AI for Autonomous Driving

June 29, 2022

Overlooking thermal design in today’s truck-mounted advanced driver assistance systems can cripple performance, cause critical safety problems, and expose vehicle operators and vendors to liability. Technical leads for autonomous trucks should carefully review ADAS vendors’ thermal design to ensure it meets their performance, durability, and safety requirements. The self-contained ADAS generates enormous heat due to its advanced graphics processing units, which enable the real-time AI inferencing that’s essential for autonomous driving. The heat from these compute units is so high that it strains conventional air-cooling. Liquid cooling is fast becoming a requirement in this emerging automotive market.
