WADE-8067 Helps Cornell Win RoboSub Competition

American Portwell Technology Inc., a global leader in the embedded computing market, announced that by using the WADE-8067 an embedded Mini-ITX motherboard of Portwell, Cornell University’s Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (CUAUV) team won the 2010 RoboSub competition organized by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) from July 13-18, 2010 in San Diego, California.

The dimension constraints of Cornell’s on-board computer and its limitation to a Mini-ITX form factor or slighter made them employ Potwell’s WADE-8067. The low-power Mini-ITX entrenched board of WADE incorporated with an Intel Core 2 Extreme quad core processor delivered necessary computing power to perform all tasks including striking a targeted buoy, maneuvering torpedoes to specific windows and dropping pointers in bins, thereby helping the team to win the competition.

JB Rajsky of Cornell University’s AUV team confirmed the 25%  rapid achievement of the visual elements when compared to the previous year competition. According to Daryl Davidson, AUVSI Foundation’s executive director, on-board computers and circuit boards of Portwell played a major role in the performance of the submarine.
