Perrone Robotics at Embedded World

Together with our real-time VM partner Aicas, Perrone Robotics Inc. (PRI) will be demonstrating the MAX platform at the Embedded World conference and exposition the week of February 27.  Aicas is an important partner for PRI as they enable our real-time operation needed for safety critical operations of our platform.  This means that our perception and control threads will execute when they need to and won’t be blocked by any other processing that may be going on because they are higher priority threads.  Aicas allows PRI to use Java as our main development language, and still obtain the hard real-time control needed for autonomous operations.

What you’ll see there

At Embedded World we’ll show our MAX platform in action using Webots simulation software from Cyberbotics.  We use this simulation software extensively as part of our development process, and it will allow you to see how MAX functions in the real world.  We’ll also have some videos showing MAX in action in some of our autonomous cars.

Dave Hofert will be there giving a talk about Innovations in Perception and Control for Autonomous Vehicle Operation with Dan Isaacs from Xilinx.  This talk will be on Tuesday at 3 PM in the Autonomous Vehicle track.  Read here for more information.

You can find us and other Aicas partners in their stand 303 in Hall 4 at the Nürnberg Messe, Nuremberg, Germany.

Free guest tickets are available. Enter Aicas’ code B377386 to redeem your ticket.

Thank you!

Thank you to Aicas for inviting us to be part of their booth.  I look forward to seeing everyone there!
