NEW YORK – Persistent Systems LLC in New York is introducing the Rugged Display and Controller (RDC) for the MPU5 mobile ad hoc networking (MANET) device to enable users to interact with other users, unmanned systems, and sensors.
The wearable RDC offers improved ruggedness, ergonomics, and enterprise-class management in one of the few Android end-user devices made in America.
The controller enables the operator to receive voice, video, and situational awareness data from every user, unmanned systems, and sensor on the network.
Designed for tactical users who wear gloves, the RDC has buttons that include the Android standard Home, Back, and app overview buttons. When connected, the RDC appears to Android as a game pad input device with two joysticks, rocker-switches, A-B-X-Y buttons, and an emulated D-Pad.
Joysticks on the wearable device enable users to navigate their applications to zoom in, and hot keys help users switch between functions.
The unit's accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, thermometer, pressure, light sensors, and rear-facing camera incorporate motion, orientation, and environmental data.
