Robotic Computing on FPGAs

The authors of this new book in our Computer Architectureseries have over 40 years of combined research experience utilizing FPGAs in robotic applications, both in academic research and commercial deployments. They have demonstrated that, by co-designing both the software and hardware, FPGAs can achieve more than 10× better performance and energy efficiency compared to the CPU and GPU implementations.

This book provides a thorough overview of the state-of-the-art field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based robotic computing accelerator designs and summarizes their adopted optimized techniques. This book delves into the details of how FPGAs have been utilized in robotic perception, localization, planning, and multi-robot collaboration tasks. In addition to individual robotic tasks, it also provides detailed descriptions of how FPGAs have been used in robotic products, including commercial autonomous vehicles and space exploration robots.
