Speeding Autonomous Vehicle Research at Mississippi State University with Quantum R-Series Edge Storage

Posted by

The Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS) at Mississippi State University (MSU) is uniquely positioned to define the future of autonomous vehicles. By driving test vehicles on the university’s 55-acre off-road environment, dubbed ‘the Proving Ground,’ faculty and students collect critical sensor data about the outdoor terrain. That data is then fed into MSU’s powerful high-performance computing (HPC) systems, which are used for simulating thousands of additional drives.

By sharing all this data with teams across and beyond MSU, CAVS is helping drive additional vehicle research and fueling development of navigation software. Ultimately, this work will provide the foundation for next-generation autonomous vehicles used by the military as well as agriculture, energy, construction, and forestry organizations.

To reliably collect test-vehicle data in challenging off-road conditions, the CAVS team selected Quantum R-Series Edge Storage. R-Series systems are ruggedized, in-car devices designed for high-speed data capture in the field. “We needed storage that could reliably collect sensor data as vehicles traverse rough trails and other challenging terrain,” says Daniel Carruth, associate director for advanced vehicle systems. “Quantum R-Series Edge Storage is dependable even in the most demanding conditions.”
