Embedded Goes Autonomous - RTOS Considerations Vortragssprache Englisch

Embedded can mean anything across many market verticals. Autonomous features are appearing in cars, trains, trucks, aircraft, shipping and the next generation of robots will have some autonomous features appearing at least to act independently. This paper shall be concerned with aircraft, Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) and other airborne drones with the concept of embedded Operating Systems (OS), which may allow safe autonomous flight. The very mention of UAV conjures up a whole host of thoughts and discussions. We all know about the Reaper drone, as shown on military feeds on world news channels. Sure there are new 'drone' technologies for the military using weapons also known as Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV), Autonomous drones swarm drones and much more that we are not informed about... Swarm drones, yes that's right, swarms of drones using next generation technology, where a large number of drones are controlled from a manned aircraft or from one ground based system. Intel recently highlighted their 'Drone 100' project based on Intel technology showing 100 drones being launched and controlled by only four pilots. QinetiQ in the UK recently announced successful tests of four drones being controlled by an ex military experimental Tornado aircraft and crew. This is an indication of the future for manned military vehicles, where it takes many years to train fast jet pilots, but drones do not need to be trained, but only designed and manufactured! These next generation drone technologies will use wireless radio communications combined with onboard software to enable swarm control features, whether controlled by man or controlled autonomously by themselves. It's possible that these new drones may be susceptible to interference by external sources, where both safety and security shall become a prime consideration for any drone technology in the years ahead. But what if a single or even multiple drones flying in swarms were allowed to fly in commercial airspace along side commercial aircraft, even land at any airfield of choice? The implications to safety of life would be obvious. This paper will discuss hardware technology and Operating System technology for a safety and security driven approach to make the
