"Between" Communication Capability - The Most Significant Differentiator for Man/Machine Public Safety
Tuesday, October 06, 2020: 1:00 PM - 1:45 PM
Teams of autonomous air, land, and sea robots working collaboratively in vast swarms on behalf of public safety to provide full situational awareness are a “force multiplier”. Continuous, uninterrupted communication to, from, and between these systems offers critical insights to isolate an urban objective. Whether that object is responding to a disaster, assisting with crowd management or providing added layers of security for a public event, the wireless network connecting all of these systems is key to their fail-safe, continuous connectivity to deliver audio, video, sensing and position information. Moreover, it is the “between” communication capability that stands as the most significant differentiator. Extreme IIoT data collection and coordination of autonomous operations enable all drones to act like nature’s swarms – together, in formation, independently, and without one-to-one controlled supervision. Full mobility and vast distance coverage become non-issues when drones are operating on a low-latency, high-throughput network. The primary reason for smart cities to use any autonomous air, land, or sea robot is to assist public safety manpower by providing sensory insights from areas too dangerous for humans. This is not a replacement, but an amplified augmentation of what can be achieved when man and machine work together. Here, again, the right wireless network can be used to connect communications between the two using the same system. Rajant Corporation’s VP of Crypto Security Robotics & Drones, Angela Quinn, facilitates a panel of drone manufacturers, end-users, and testing agencies in a practical discussion of what they are working on today, which is the enablement of “meshed” drone swarms. Full situational awareness is happening. Man and machine are using the same lighter, smaller, and faster radios over one network to communicate together for an array of public safety objectives. Look at what DARPA is doing with air, land, and sea as well as underground programs. Learn from customers the steps to statewide certification. Hear from manufacturers on what they look for when it comes to operational networking needs. Understand what it means to be working with a truly distributed mesh, unlike Wi-Fi and LTE. All of these topics, along with audience questions, will be addressed.
