Flexible Real-Time Environment for Traffic Control Systems

Objective

The system will have three basic components:

a set of radar sensors
a parallel data processing system based on Transputers
a real-time user console

The parallel data processing system is being developed as an image processor on a configurable parallel architecture. The real-time user console performs synthetic data fusion, rendering of classified objects and graphics. The development is supported by a hard real-time development environment with mechanisms for scheduling and interprocess communication. A radar simulator collects scenarios to be used for validation and performance evaluation.

Work has now proceeded to the integration phase, having successfully completed the development of the individual system components.

The first prototype system will be targeted at vessel traffic control applications. Post-project exploitation plans currently go in the direction of customisation and tuning of the vessel traffic control application and reuse of parts of the real-time console for a training application and simulator.
