Abstract
With increased use of autonomous platforms, including ground robots and drone aircraft, there is much more video and audio feed than has been the case. The commercial / entertainment world has developed a multiplicity of both audio and video formats for use in commercial recorders, players, etc. With cost savings to be realized from using COTS products, it is desirable to leverage the capabilities of the commercial world. These capabilities include the hundreds different digital video/audio formats that have been developed. Some of the video formats (MPEG, AVI, WMV, MOV) and the audio formats (MP3, WAV, AAC) are popular. IAI"s innovative approach is the Agent-based Scalable Virtual Streaming (ABVS) Framework. The ABVS framework is deployed in the context of a SOA architecture. When a new CODEC is added, a new service description is added to the UDDI Repository. The user (software program or human) may request a translation through a Web service interface. Architecturally, ABVS is a hybrid architecture that is an integration of the net-centric SOA Web service architecture with an Agent Framework. Agent types include Wrappers for various CODEC, Translation Request Handlers, among others.
