Paper Abstract

Low-bandwidth digital video wireless transmission is essential for Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) teleoperation. In this paper, we propose, for the first time, audio-like bandwidth (64 kpbs) wireless TV-class digital video communication (210 Mbps-original bandwidth) based on POC's Soft-Computing and Soft-Communication (SC2) technologies, which integrate: highly-parallel electronics (256 processors, in parallel); super-computer-class processing power (8 BOPs, or eight billion operations per second); small power consumption (1-2W, and small packaging (2x3);leading in the near future to business-card-size, fully upgradable PCMCIA packaging. The proposed technology has applications in UGV communication platforms, providing communication and autonomous image and signal processing.
