Rajant’s Kinetic Mesh selected for Intellos A-UGV
Sharp Electronics will use Rajant's Kinetic Mesh wireless technology as the wireless communications infrastructure platform for its Intellos automated unmanned ground vehicle (A-UGV), the company announced on 5 April.
The A-UGV is designed for outdoor surveillance, security, safety and maintenance inspection patrols.
Using a combination of BreadCrumb wireless network nodes and InstaMesh networking software, Rajant's Kinetic Mesh networks employ any-node to any-node capabilities to continuously and instantaneously route data via the best available traffic path and frequency, for any number of nodes. Rajant BreadCrumbs can communicate with any Wi-Fi or Ethernet-connected device to deliver low-latency, high-throughput data, voice and video applications across the meshed, self-healing network.
Bob Schena, chairman and CEO of Rajant, said: '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.'
