The UGV market is reaching a tipping point of adoption as various industries realize the potential of productivity improvements by unmanned vehicles. UGV manufacturers are rapidly innovating to enable new use cases. An acute pain point for UGV designers, however, is finding connectivity solutions that allow their systems to reach their full potential. The communications link is the lifeline between the rover and the control station, and it is necessary to have a highly reliable, low latency, high throughput wireless communication link for Command, Control and streaming sensor data (e.g. 4K video).
Doodle Labs has an extensive portfolio of wireless building blocks developed specifically with the UGV applications in mind. Its research is focused on leveraging the benefits of COFDM and MIMO technology to address the inherent RF challenges that unmanned ground systems face. As a part of this effort, Doodle Labs has developed a set of UGV-focused features within its BII® technology that extend the rover’s communication range and support operation in harsh RF environments.
