Sharp Electronics names Rajant as partner in Roboalliance program

June 7, 2016 – Rajant, a provider of mobile mesh technology for private wireless networks, announced its role in the Robolliance program, an initiative tasked with educating the security industry marketplace about ground-breaking security robotics products.

Rajant makes mobile, scalable and highly reliable kinetic wireless mesh network technology, which provides an always connected communications network so critical applications can be accessed in real time. Worldwide spending on robotics is expected to reach $67-billion by 2025, more than double the current market, according to the Boston Consulting Group. 

Autonomous and robotic applications allow vehicles or equipment to operate independently without anyone behind the wheel, using sensors, software, computers and other technology to give the machines a limited understanding of their environments. This data then is used by control algorithms to determine the next action the machines need to take for given tasks. 

To maximize performance, the network infrastructure supporting this data has to deliver low-latency, high-throughput and continuous-communication capabilities. Operations leaders across multiple industries – including oil & gas, mining and municipalities – have implemented Rajant kinetic mesh wireless networks to facilitate autonomous applications because they help ensure all three requirements.

Rajant wireless nodes create a private wireless mesh network when deployed with other nodes. The more nodes added to the network, the more paths for communication are established, a differentiating factor relative to other networking technologies. 

The nodes use multiple radios to perform multiple functions concurrently. Each node is independent with full routing capabilities and communicates in full duplex.  That means each node can send and receive data simultaneously, and enable multiple-hop routing effectively and efficiently.
