VIF SPIDER Use-case

The Smart Physical Demonstration and Evaluation Robot (SPIDER) is an autonomous vehicle, with omnidirectional movement capabilities, a weight of around 380kg and a top speed of 50km/h. Given the technical specification, the SPIDER has to fulfill highest requirements regarding safety and security preventing human harm. The technologies covered in this demonstrator in which safe and autonomous decisions are required span from autonomous vehicles to robotics, and automation industry since in this demonstrator we are deploying Linux OS on top of COTS FPGAs deploying multicores architectures similar to the ones found in commercial boards for autonomous systems on the edge.
