Technology for AI logistics
With the increase of Artificial Intelligence and mapping accuracy over recent years, more companies are seriously considering taking logistics to a new level of sophistication. With the profitability of letter deliveries remaining low, most delivery companies are making the most of on-line purchases by focussing on parcel deliveries to homes and offices.
If the stumbling blocks to adoption in the past have been technology, these are improving daily too. Artificial Intelligence (AI), logistics, encrypted, remote guiding, tracking on gps (for sabotage – stealing purposes) have all made significant progress in the the latter part of the 2010’s.
Drone logistic delivery
With the reduced cost of high definition cameras, parcel deliveries can use videos for each operation, which would ensure that their command centre can see where the drones are going. Although many deliveries would initially be piloted and therefore requiring live stream broadcasting to the pilot, in order to ensure buildings, electricity wires and other obstacles are avoided. Even pre-programmed GPS drones would benefit from live streaming, to ensure the safe delivery of products.
Secure logistics with live transmission technology
The way Soliton has deployed the H265 hardware based encoder results in at least 50% more efficiency in bandwidth usage compared to traditional solutions. For example: a 3 Mbps Soliton H265 stream provides the same video quality as a stream doing 6 Mbps in H264. The 4G Bonding algorithm has also been improved dramatically compared to the traditional 4G bonding systems. The overall result is a much improved picture quality, even with less latency, which is typically under half a second. It is even possible to have 2 way communication between the camera team and the editorial people with minor delay via the ZAO.
The 4G bonding system, ensures that live, encoded video transmissions would be distributed between multiple networks to the Milestone or HD View systems, This collectively adds another level of difficulty to an already complex system to hack. As the transmitted video signals are fragmented though different carriers, even if the signals are hacked they could only hack fragments and not sections of the broadcast.
About Soliton Systems: Soliton Systems manufacture a range of mobile video streaming, video encoding and security products. Its flagship products, the Smart-telecaster Zao and Zao-S, is in use by range of broadcast, sports production companies, emergency services and first responders for live mobile video surveillance and outside broadcast.Go to public safety Live broadcasting solutions
