Embedded Computing Technologies for Unmanned Vehicles

The range of computing technologies required by unmanned vehicles is broad. The ability to capture and process video information in challenging environments. The ability to process sensor-acquired data. The ability to ensure robust communications onboard the vehicle and with a ground station. The ability to take autonomous action based on the data it acquires. Abaco Systems solutions for challenging military and aerospace applications feature many of those technologies. This white paper looks at some of the technology challenges that have to be overcome in order to maximize the effectiveness of unmanned vehicles.
