Pleora Demonstrating Real-Time Sensor Networking and Advanced Situational Awareness Software at IAV 2020

Sensor networking platform and integrated situational awareness software help vehicle crew perform tasks more effectively, efficiently, and safely while reducing cognitive burden

Pleora Technologies will be demonstrating how its RuggedCONNECT™ Smart Video Switching platform and situational awareness software provide critical decision-support capabilities to increase mission effectiveness for ground vehicle crew at the International Armoured Vehicles 2020 conference (Twickenham Stadium, London, United Kingdom, Jan. 20-23, stand #B4). To book a demo visit https://go.pleora.com/IAV-2020.


Pleora's RuggedCONNECT platform converts sensor data from multiple sources into a standardized feed that is transmitted over a low latency, multicast Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) network to endpoints. Manufacturers can design straightforward camera-to-display systems and cost-effectively evolve to fully networked architectures integrating different sensor and display types, switching, processing, and recording units. With all devices connected to a common infrastructure, vehicle crew can view information they need on a single display and know immediately if something has changed in their environment.

Combining the high-performance networking of RuggedCONNECT with the powerful GPU resources of the NVIDIA Jetson TX2i, designers can easily add machine learning-based decision-support capabilities to help reduce cognitive burden and increase mission effectiveness. Advanced situational awareness software, available as solution plug-ins for RuggedCONNECT, includes automatic threat detection, region of interest, and rollover warning capabilities to improve battlefield intelligence.

Pleora has announced technology partnerships with Mission Control Space Services and Lemay.ai to develop machine-learning artificial intelligence capabilities for military imaging platforms. For more on Pleora's artificial intelligence capabilities for military applications visit C4ISR.ai.

Global manufacturers are designing Pleora's military imaging expertise into local situational awareness (LSA), Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR), remote controlled weapon stations (RCWS), driver vision enhancement (DVE), and panoramic surveillance applications.

Presentation at IAV - 11:00 am, January 20

Pleora President Harry Page will be discussing how understanding challenges and mission goals for vehicle crew members is critical when developing new technology for the military market. Joining Mr. Page will be Alan Bolster. Mr. Bolster spent over 37 years in uniform with the Canadian army, and has experience both in Canada and internationally as a tank and reconnaissance officer with operational tours in Germany, the Middle East, and Afghanistan.

Pleora's presentation - "Real-Time Sensor Networking for Mission Critical Applications" - is on January 20th at 11 a.m., as part of the IAV 2020 MRO & Retro In-Service Support Focus Day.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
