The ARCHADE is a multi-purpose ubiquitous supercomputing framework and middleware that transforms a set of entities, such as:
into a single cooperative unit, into a supercomputer that can be used and reused for anything.
The ARCHADE includes an API and a high-level language to describe any mission to be carried out by ubiquitous supercomputing systems. It is in fact a multi-agent technology, where each agent controls a single entity, all under the control of a central agent representing the system and humans, as the entities with the highest hierarchy. The following videos show a set of examples of The ARCHADE. Using the API, you can create all kind of missions, or we can do it for you, if you want. We will be happy to create your ubiquitous supercomputing system. For more information please contact us. :D
In this video, a rover, powered by The ARCHADE, autonomously search for a target and returns home
In this video, two rovers, powered by The ARCHADE split an area among each other and scan their individual sub areas. All collected information is shared between both the robots and with th ground station. In fact, the three entities are set as a High Performance Robotic Computing Cluster (HPRC), where the ground station is the master entity and the two rovers, two slaves. For more information about the new computer science field HPRC, please visit the published paper introducing it. We thank the Barcelona TECH ICARUS research group for borrowing the two rovers used for these missions.
In this video, we show two complete missions carried out with the two rovers. Follow me and ethical hacking. To the best of our knowledge these are the first ever hackrovers. This mission is shown to demonstrate The ARCHADE's potential to create all kind of missions, even those uncommon in the world in robotics. A detailed explanation is given in the video.
In this video, we show The ARCHADE running in the ground station and the two rovers. Enjoy fully autonomous control of multi-robot systems :D
