"Bytes By Design was absolutely critical to the success of the Bowman Perfusion Monitor and probe calibration system. They developed a beautiful UI with real-time numerical, graphical and status displays, and the multi-threaded system architecture. They took the initiative to find solutions to complex technical problems and were a great pleasure to work with.

Problem:
The new generation of "smart weapons" includes intelligent robotics systems. To be effective, weapons of this type must be able to navigate in the field, communicate with other robots, update the command center and leverage machine vision and acoustic sensor technologies. They must provide maximum functionality in a very small space, consume low power, be low cost, and offer high maneuverability and reliability.

Solution:
With these parameters in mind, we developed distributed, multiple embedded microprocessor systems dedicated to each of the core subsystems, which included navigation, motion control, vision, sonar, acoustic and communications. In addition, we designed real-time operating systems for TMS32020 DSPs, Zoran Vector Processors, 68020 processors, as well as a custom array processor. Finally, we created a PC-based Command Center with a rich, graphical interface which is used to coordinate the field robots, load the terrain maps, and display sensor information.

The Advanced Mobile Test Bed allowed us to develop cutting-edge machine vision, sonar and navigation algorithms.


Just some of the advanced embedded sub-systems we developed...

The Advanced Mobile Test Bed machine vision processor optimized for high-speed filtering, edge detection and feature extraction.

The Advanced Mobile Test Bed motion control and sonar mapping processors.

Command Center 3D-graphics visualization processors.

The Advanced Mobile Test Bed navigation and communications processor.
