Remote control

As the workforce decreases, all sorts of companies are finding it increasingly difficult to ensure the workforce needed for essential work, not just companies in the construction, logistics, agriculture, and medical care fields. The inefficiency of simple work and the fact that only highly skilled workers can carry out sophisticated work are serious problems in all industries. Many automation attempts combining AI and robotics are being made to address these challenges in recent years, but it is not realistic in terms of technology and cost to completely replace human flexibility and sophisticated skills with automation.
In this context, we focused our attention on remote control technologies. You can create cost effective work processes by combining automation and remote manual operations. You can automate menial tasks and perform difficult-to-automate tasks remotely instead of trying to automate them with a brute force approach. With the increase in bandwidth and latency reduction of wireless communication networks, the kinds of work that can be done using remote control are expected to increase in the future. intdash establishes remote control in a variety of scenarios with excellent real-time performance and intermediary server architecture.

Use cases

Intervention to control unmanned robots such as delivery robots and work robots in a warehouse

Remote handling of construction machines in a danger zone

Workforce reduction through consolidation of forklift and other equipment operations in the central control room

Remote support for driverless vehicles that have encountered problems

Assistance for out-of-sight flight and takeoff and landing of drones

Remote operation of avatar robot

Challenges related to remote control

For remote control, the operator creates a feedback loop with the equipment to be controlled via an operating device. This is why remote control requires incomparably better real-time performance than unidirectional data transmission. Remote control also requires stable bidirectional data fusion streaming.

  • Excellent real-time feedback and bidirectional data streaming
  • Integrated streaming of fusion data including control data, sensor data, and video data
  • Support for control protocols specific to controlled equipment
  • Fail safe mechanism that prevents uncontrolled operation in case of network disconnection

Main features of DX Functions

Remote control via an intermediary server

The intermediary server architecture allows for a many-to-many connection between multiple operating devices and controlled equipment.

Bidirectional streaming between operating devices and controlled equipment

Control data for operation and feedback data such as sensor signals and video are bidirectionally streamed in real time.

Flawless collection of all live data

All data in operation sequences, including the operator's control data and response data from controlled equipment, is automatically recorded. You can use this data to develop advanced automation programs.

Low-latency video streaming

Video data sent from edge devices can be streamed with low latency using aptpod's proprietary protocol. Video data can also be converted into HLS or WebSocket format that is easy to use in various applications.
