High-Speed Autonomous Vehicle Control
RacerX is an autonomous vehicle application for our Quest(-V)
project. It features an on-board PC for sensor data processing,
telemetry, and navigation. By equipping the vehicle with a
virtualization-aware processor, software faults and soft errors
(hardware bitflips and spurious signal errors) can be handled in
real-time. RacerX supports failsafe methods such as Triple Modular
Redundancy (TMR) to recover from errors, without affecting vehicle
mission objectives, where possible.
