An unmanned ground vehicle will be equipped with an advanced wireless communication and connectivity network. Rajant announced recently that Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC) will use its Kinetic Mesh technology as the wireless communications infrastructure for the Sharp INTELLOS Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle (A-UGV).
The mobility, reliability, and scalability of Rajant’s network are key reasons for the company’s selection. Its radios, software, military-grade security and cryptography support the autonomous applications and network infrastructures of some of the largest companies in the world.
“The INTELLOS outdoor security robot is a strategic investment for companies that desire a visible deterrent to potential intruders as well as an A-UGV capable of managing repetitive tasks in dangerous environments,” Cliff Quiroga, Vice President of Sharp Robotics Business Development told roboticstommorrow.com. “Capturing video, audio, and environmental data, and communicating that information to a command & control center, requires an advanced network. Rajant’s Kinetic Mesh wireless technology gives INTELLOS a best-in-class mission critical network infrastructure.”
As a mobile platform capable of operating in various terrains, the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV provides outdoor surveillance, security, safety, and maintenance inspection patrols. The Intellos also has an optional feature that can detect toxicity levels, capture images, and sounds, and uses LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) to measure variable distances.
“The Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV extends the impact of traditional security forces, so it stands to reason that it would require a network infrastructure capable of supporting continuous connectivity and real-time communications of sensor and monitoring data,” said Bob Schena, Chairman and CEO of Rajant. “Sharp made a commitment to bringing a best-in-class robot to market, and Rajant is proud of its contribution toward reaching that goal.”
