Abstract : We created an intelligent, reliable, and efficient compute scheduling and management system aboard an AV by employing a cluster of embedded computing systems to improve upon the following areas: Vehicle adaptability (i.e. re-planning and reconfiguration), computing, and technology adaptation. This work deviates from the current methods of using independent systems that are activated as needed for vehicle sensing and computing. Instead, a centralized system where resources are placed in a shared pool and tasks are dispatched and executed when availability and functionality permits, according to the task classifications and user described priorities.
