Vehicle Connectivity & Wireless Communications

Enabling Coordinated Mining through Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

Reliable network in even the worst mining conditions

Vehicle connectivity is a critical infrastructure that most technologies rely on. Much of RIGID ROBOTICS solutions rely on different forms of connectivity to operate (Peer-to-peer communication for collision awareness, office connectivity for RIGIDportal remote management, and more). To this end, RIGID ROBOTICS offer a connectivity portfolio with a belief that mining vehicle connectivity should be modular, open-API, secure and easy to manage. Our connectivity solutions enable PoE operation, no-RF-cabling and modularity to minimize total cost of ownership.

Elegant Basics

This is how we describe our networking portfolio. It consists of:

  • Ruggedized 8-port and 16-port PoE switches for vehicles
  • A full-fledged 1W mining 2.4 GHz WiFi client/router add-on
  • Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) add-on for peer-peer communications
  • UHF add-on for high precision positioning

Together, they enable mine operations to move to an efficient PoE-based, all-Ethernet-cabling with remote management capability at a low-cost.

Universal Machine Support

Reduce inventory and maintenance costs with identical parts and cabling across your entire fleet.

[Optional] Remotely managed with RIGIDportal

All of our systems can be monitored, maintained, and managed remotely via  RIGIDportal web interface.
