In-Vehicle Data Capture

Quickly Capture Sensor Data in any Edge Environment

Data captured in an autonomous vehicle can generate up to 20 TB per hour, per vehicle, and petabytes a week, quickly reaching multi-petabyte scale. Vast amounts of unstructured data—high-res images, LiDAR sensor data, and machine data–-are being generated in an environment that requires small form factor, large storage capacity, durability, and performance based on NVMe flash. The Quantum R-Series is purpose built to meet all these requirements.

Edge Storage with Reliable, Durable Data Capture

Quantum’s R-Series was specifically designed for edge data capture use cases, such as ADAS and autonomous vehicle research, surveillance monitoring, M&E production, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. The R-Series addresses the demanding requirements of data capture in any challenging environment - from military vehicles on rough terrain in the desert to research vehicles navigating potholes and road obstacles at high speeds.

The R-Series supports SSD and NVMe form factors with adjustable capacity based on requirements. The drives are situated in a removable canister, making it easy to swap full canisters and put in empty canisters - ready to capture more data. The removed canister can then be inserted into a chassis in the data center for further analysis.
