Abstract

Unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, have drawn extensive attention during the last decade together with the maturity of the technology. Often, real-time requirements are needed when they are deployed for critical missions. The increasing computational demand for drones leads to a shift towards multicore architectures. However, the timing analysis of multicore systems is a challenging task due to the timing interference between processor cores. In this demonstration, we deploy a parallelized flight controller system on a multicore architecture. We provide timing analysis of the system, and test it with a processor-in-the-loop setup, which includes a flight simulator connected to the flight controller running on a time-predictable multicore platform.
