autonomous efforts
Kontron and Intel experts explain how rugged, modular COM Express solutions reduce
complexity and allow retrofit of autonomous systems on heavy mobile equipment.
by Jack London and Andrea Thomas
Kontron and Intel are helping embedded system developers
address design requirements for mobile equipment with
onboard edge-computing platforms based on industrystandard
components.
C
ontinually transformed with more than a century's advances in
capabilities, hydraulics and fuel efficiency, today's heavy mobile
equipment must also become more intelligent and better
connected. Technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI),
deep learning, big data, GPS, 5G and computer vision are proving their
mettle - empowering far more efficient ways of carrying out unique
and demanding tasks via advanced telematics, advanced driver assistance
systems (ADAS) or varying levels of autonomy.
Heavy mobile equipment (HME) that can gather and apply data in
real time operates and
makes decisions in ways that
humans cannot. This evolution
toward automation
promises not only leadership
for manufacturers of more
advanced systems, but also
increased safety, economy,
efficiency and ecological
compatibility.
Automated performance
is the next step for these
indispensable vehicles, yet
automating them is a deeply
complex mission. For system
designers and operators,
transforming these
machines requires well-defined
fleet strategies and
fleet-specific software and

hardware that can be applied to a variety of use cases.
Modular standards-based COM Express solutions
demonstrate high value here, often compatible with
manufacturers' existing systems and playing a key role
in developing connected machinery. These small-footprint
systems blend high performance and rugged characteristics
to enable heavy-equipment fleet operators to
capitalize on cloud services, benefitting from machineto-cloud
and machine-to-machine communications.

" Automated performance is the next
step for these indispensable vehicles...
Retrofitting of systems is breaking new
ground in this effort. "
COM Express
supports smart
retrofit
Standards-based Com
Express modules provide developers
with design flexibility
and a path to an openarchitecture
platform that can
be deployed across a given
vehicle portfolio. The COM
Express standard defines a
variety of form factors, allowing
developers to strike a
strong balance between cost
and performance as well as
flexibility needed for a spectrum
of embedded devices.
As such, COM Express is
