Data acquisition

Data-acquisition hardware on board of the Robocom robot is based on PCBricks. These are small, custom-built x86 PC modules, fitted with mini-ITX motherboards. For Rawseeds, three of them were mounted on the robot, interconnected through a TCP/IP network (also equipped with a wireless link to connect to remote machines). Operating system of Rawseeds’ PCBricks is […]

Data synchronization

RAWSEEDS’ datasets are composed of multiple, heterogeneous data streams. These streams need to be precisely time-synchronized between each other and with respect to the ground truth data. To achieve such result, we used custom software built upon the IEEE 1588 protocol, or Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol for Networked Measurement and Control Systems (PTP).
