AI is a core component of deploying truly autonomous vehicles in commercial, industrial and defense applications.
Artificial Intelligence is a core component of deploying truly autonomous vehicles in commercial, industrial and defense applications. These AI Transportable applications require no-compromise performance deployed in harsh operating environments supporting real time decision making. Autonomous vehicles are outfitted with specialized high performance edge computing equipment with high bandwidth data ingest components tied to a myriad of video, radar and LIDAR sensors, high capacity and low latency storage subsystems and high-performance compute engines that can perform the AI machine learning and inference tasks needed to enable the vehicle to see, hear, think and make decisions just like human operators.
Providing ISR with advancing AI technology, in order to process the increasing size and precision of data collected.
AI-based autonomous driving systems enable trucks to respond to real-time highway conditions, including road construction, that are often overlooked by GPS mapping systems and to effectively perform obstacle detection and collision avoidance. Deployment of autonomous vehicles goes well beyond commercial automobiles to include industrial long-haul trucks, construction, mining and agricultural heavy equipment, buses, subway, freight and passenger trains. All of these applications require specialization of AI capable computer equipment in terms of form factor, cooling and ruggedization to meet unique harsh environmental conditions.RELATED PRODUCTS
Technologies such as advanced high-performance computing, storage, and connectivity can be packaged in compact, ruggedized enclosures.
Industrial UAV solutions use AI to navigate and perform their specialized job function with limited human intervention. Large format aircraft from helicopters to unmanned planes perform tasks in public safety, security, construction, and mining. All of these AI Transportable applications have requirements for no compromise AI computing based on large, acquired data sets but have constrained design limits in terms of size, ruggedization, weight and power along with potential sensitivity to humidity and altitude.RELATED PRODUCTS
