  • https://www.crystalrugged.com/crystal-group-accelerating-autonomous-vehicle-development-for-harsh-edge-environments/ HIAWATHA, IOWA, February 10, 2021 — Crystal Group, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of rugged computer and electronic hardware, announced today its increased focus on developing autonomous vehicle (AV) compute systems for industrial and military applications. Equipped to handle the harsh and unpredictable operating challenges inherent to edge environments, Crystal Group’s rugged AV servers deliver the critical combination of robust compute power with hardened physical assets. This ensures demanding AV applications, like military ground vehicles, submarines and aircraft, heavy construction equipment, and over-the-road trucking, can execute seamless performance regardless of ever-changing conditions. “Accurate, real-time situational awareness of an 80,000-pound autonomous semi moving down a highway at 70 miles an hour or a weaponized military autonomous aircraft can’t be compromised by even the slightest disruption, whether it’s rough terrain, supply voltage variation, shifting climate conditions or severe weather,” said Jim Shaw, executive vice president of Engineering at Crystal Group. “Our rugged solutions integrate leading-edge inference engines and compute capabilities with the power, stability and security. The result is intelligent operations optimized for safety and efficiency.” Crystal Group’s ability to bring reliable AV functionality to the edge stems from their ability to incorporate robust NVIDIA GPUs needed to process and prioritize the vast amount of data for comprehensive situational awareness with critical advanced thermal management designs. Managing the heat generated by power-hungry AV compute requirements is critical to prevent systems from throttling for seamless operation. Greater public awareness and government support for autonomous passenger and public transportation vehicles is proliferating the broad adoption of and investment in AV technology across the industrial and defense markets.

  • https://www.crystalrugged.com/crystal-group-brings-rugged-autonomous-vehicle-compute-solutions-to-the-edge/ HIAWATHA, IOWA, March 03, 2021 — Crystal Group, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of rugged computer and electronic hardware, announced it is working with trucking companies—including TuSimple, the world’s largest and most advanced self-driving truck company—and robotics developers to accelerate the seamless AI-enabled performance of autonomous trucks and heavy construction machinery in demanding environments. Crystal Group customizes its products, including the AVC0161, to enable application-specific requirements. Built to ensure seamless real-time situational awareness and operation regardless of ever-changing conditions, Crystal Group’s autonomous vehicle compute (AVC) solutions combine their proprietary ruggedization techniques and game-changing 12-V DC, ATX-compliant server with NVIDIA’s robust GPUs. Using a power supply that interfaces directly with the vehicle’s battery, these servers eliminate the need for a separate power converter while delivering 1,500 or 2,000 watts of power to interpret and act upon the massive inputs captured by the vehicle’s network of sensors, radar and cameras. An optional liquid cooling system outputs the waste heat to prevent throttling due to the significant heat generated by the power-hungry compute requirements. “Equipping these substantial machines for safe, successful driverless operation with little or no human intervention requires us to understand the operational requirements in tandem with the range of environmental conditions they may be exposed,” said Micah Snodgrass, technical director at Crystal Group. “Ongoing, candid collaboration with TuSimple resulted in a custom solution with enhanced processing power, thermal management and shock absorption that not only met their functional requirements, but also raised industry benchmarks for safety, efficiency and reliability.” Wide-spread adoption of AI-enabled autonomous capabilities is expected to proliferate across trucking and construction, as well as agriculture, mining, and oil and gas, given the significant benefits—including improved operating efficiencies, quality and productivity, reduced operating costs and risks due to human error, and safer roadways and work sites—that stand to be gained. By 2025, the self-driving truck market is projected to reach $1.67B while autonomous construction forecasts reach $14B by 2023. About Crystal Group, Inc.
