The industry is rushing to build Autonomous Robots to perform a variety of activities that can increase productivity and safety of people. The ARs require a reliable and low latency, high speed connectivity while on the move. Doodle Labs’ Mesh Rider technology offers the high speed private wireless solution required by autonomous machines.

Long Range

A common requirement of all AR manufacturers is for a long operating range. Rover height and operating frequency play an important role in the achievable range. Lower frequency helps with deep penetration in the NrLOS conditions but unfortunately has the biggest Fresnel zone obstruction. Doodle Labs has a large family of form factor compatible models in 100 MHz to 6 GHz frequency bands for an optimum selection of operating frequency. Our  customers have achieved several Km range even with very low height robots.

Smart Radio

Doodle Labs has integrated the Mesh Rider technology in it’s field proven Smart Radio platform. These ready to deploy products simplify implementation of industrial-grade license free private mobile mesh networks. Here are some salient features of the Smart Radio. Please visit the Smart Radio home page to learn more about this feature rich platform.

Interference Avoidance
State-of-the-Art RF

State-of-the-art COFDM and MIMO technology for exceptional multi-path and NrLOS performance in harsh, noisy environments. Mesh Rider provides spectral scan and channel selection across the entire mesh network to avoid interference.

Reliable,
Low Latency C&C

The Mesh Rider’s Ultra Reliable Low Latency Channel (URLLC) for Command & Control provides reliability and low latency that is simply not possible with public LTE networks. All URLLC traffic is transported with special priority for latency as low as 3-30ms.

Optimized 4K Video

A primary use for the robots is to stream live video back to the Ground Control Station. Mesh Rider has advanced channel for streaming low latency, crystal clear video. The video can be multi-cast to multiple GCS for simultaneous viewing.

Mobile Mesh

Self-forming and self-healing multi-hop relay capabilities of Mesh Rider improves the robustness, extends the penetration and provides adaptive coverage in the deep obstruction zones.

License Free Bands

The Smart Radios are available in form factor compatible license free 915 MHz, 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz license free bands for global applications. 

The Smart Radios are available even in the newly released CBRS innovation band. Check out our Mesh Rider solution for the CBRS band.

Encryption and immunity against cyber attacks

Many applications transmit highly sensitive data. Communications must be secure and the network must be protected from unintended parties gaining access.

Regulatory Certifications

Smart Radios are modular certified in many countries so that our customers can readily start deploying the regulatory compliant license free private wireless networks.

Rugged MIL specs

Smart Radios have been deployed in some of the harshest conditions on Earth. They are certified to work through extreme temperatures and high vibration.

Affordable

Private networks with Mesh Rider technology can be deployed with low capital investment. They have virtually zero operating costs in stark contrast to the recurring monthly cost of using the public LTE network.

Extensible Platform

Smart Radio leverages the highly popular and mature open source OpenWrt Linux based routing OS. The OpenWrt is used in most major commercial wireless routers, powering few hundred million devices in the world. OpenWrt allows full customization in ways never envisioned. OpenWrt ecosystem offers many thousand apps to extend the Smart Radio functionality. Visit Doodle Labs Ecosystem gallery to learn about many other popular integrations.

DARPA Challenge

Doodle Labs is continuously honing the Mesh Rider technology for various IoT applications. We are proud to sponsor multiple teams competing in the DARPA Subterranean Challenge. Teams are leveraging Mesh Rider technology to learn from challenges in creating underground network for autonomous drones and ground vehicles, leveraging multi-hop mesh capabilities and navigate in non-line of sight situations.

902-928
License Free ISM Band – USA, Canada, Mexico, Central, South and Latin Americas, Australia, New Zealand and China

The 900 MHz band is license free for use in many countries around the world. At lower frequencies, the radio signals can travel farther and penetrate through the walls and vegetation, providing better NLOS operation. The 900 MHz band provides an excellent alternative to the crowded 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi band.
