Vision4ce is a leading developer of rugged image and video processing solutions for unmanned systems electro-optics in all domains – land, sea and air. Our hardware processing platforms and integrated software products provide detection, tracking and targeting capabilities for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), drones, UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles) and a variety of other robotic platforms.
Our products are highly customisable, allowing you to tailor a solution for any unmanned systems requirements in the harshest of environments.
GRIP Rugged Computing Platforms
High performance PC hardware for image and video processing
Our rugged GRIP PCs, packaged within environmentally sealed enclosures and designed for harsh environments, provide high-performance image and video processing for UAVs and unmanned vehicles. Based around the latest Intel Core i7 CPUs, they also feature NVIDIA GPU options for high-spec graphics and GPGPU computing applications.
All units feature a 2.5″ SSD SATA hard drive, PCIE expansion capabilities and a variety of I/O options, and can be equipped with up to 16GB of RAM.
Rugged computers deployed in harsh environments require effective cooling of high performance electronics. Our GRIP PC’s utilise proven cooling methods to ensure high reliability, with options for conduction and convection cooling of the overall unit.
A low-cost desktop development unit is also available, functionally equivalent to the rugged GRIP units and ideal for applications testing and R&D.
GRIP Alpha – Natural convection cooled rugged PC
GRIP Delta – Forced air cooled rugged PC
GRIP Delta LP – Natural convection cooled rugged PC
Rugged processing and routing of multiple video sources
Our Video Processing and Distribution Unit (VPDU) provides low-latency processing and routing of multiple video sources to multiple output displays, and is ideal for unmanned systems such as UAVs with different video payloads for targeting, detection and situational awareness.
Supporting up to 24 input sources, the VDPU features a modular architecture that can be tailored to particular combinations of input and output requirements, including PAL, NTSC, 3G/HD-SDI, YPbPr, STANAG, HDMI, RGB, VGA and GigE Vision.
The system combines an Intel 4th or 6th generation Intel Core i7 processor with an AMD GPU to drive up to 6 displays. A range of middleware libraries, based on our GRIP VMS software, are available to take advantage of the VPDU’s capabilities, including:
Low latency video capture and display
Video detection and tracking
Video compression, streaming and recording
Panoramic image formation.
We can undertake the development of a complete bespoke application for the VPDU – contact us for more information.
