Abstract:

This project focused on the design of an adaptable computing infrastructure to support DDDAS systems in the context of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles UAVs. A unifying theme that drives our research is the concept of responding and adapting to surprise. Some examples of surprise are 1 in-flight changes in mission objectives, 2 unexpected encounters with friends or foes, and 3 changes in the environment. Two examples of environmental changes could be a chipped blade which changes the dynamics of the UAV, or unexpected turbulence. In support of responding to surprise, research was pursued to allow elements of the computing platform to adapt to the system or tasks moving between different modalities e.g. real-time, high-performance, small-footprint, energy-conserving.
