Remote Assisted Reality based technology brought into the market by San Diego based Visual Mobility Inc. is leading the charge to bind communities, businesses and governments together anywhere in the world.
The National Geographic held a screening of a new documentary called “Worlds Smart Cities” in May of last Year in San Diego. In this documentary San Diego was profiled for its’ ground breaking advancements in life improvement and focused on three key areas, Talent, Innovation and Technology. The program which airs on the National Geographic Channel, illustrates how San Diego’s city officials worked with key businesses, to develop and promote community improvement solutions that bolster San Diego’s citizen’s quality of life and accentuate their ability to live and play well.
WHERE SHOULD WE FOCUS OUR INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS FOR THE FUTURE?
Among several areas highlighted in the documentary was San Diego’s prowess for technology and innovation where San Diego has a flourishing technology community. It is home to many major telecommunications firms such as Qualcomm, Novatel (MIFI), Kyocera and many others. This vertical industry has seen enormous growth and continues to see new and emerging business use cases. Of key interest is the technology innovation in progress for live video consumption and broadcasting technologies for faster transfer of high definition multimedia rich data through wireless communication channels such as 4G LTE and Wi-Fi. Both of these wireless communication channels are key success factors for facilitating Remote Assisted Reality (RAR) based technologies. The incredible efficiencies that can be leveraged off such technologies demand serious consideration in the government, community and business circles in San Diego and every other populated areas in the world.
REMOTE ASSISTED REALITY CONTRIBUTES TO THE SMART CITIES INITIATIVES
In addition to creating new job opportunities, Remote Assisted Reality technology is leveraging its ability to make businesses in several verticals including government agencies more efficient and less expensive to run by delivering 25% operating process improvements. VMI’s RAR technology achieves this by coupling live HD audio-video streaming smart glasses with in-house developed web and mobile applications. They vastly improve law enforcement, security and surveillance operations, commercial and residential property management operations, field service operations, calibrations and inspections and substantially reduce regulatory risk. Field personnel can now be equipped with these special smart glasses with a live video/voice streaming capability allowing them to share live audio/video streams and collaborate in the resolution of live situations with an expert sitting at a desk anywhere in the world. Experts can render assistance instantly without having to travel to a repair site to perform corrective actions. RAR technology can significantly advance communities of the world by facilitating such real-time collaboration through live audio-video content.
Remote Assisted Reality based technologies offer a very important social benefit targeted to our wounded and disabled veteran community in military cities such as San Diego. Essentially, when remote field personnel need assistance, they can collaborate live with experts literally anywhere in the world. The expert can offer real time support to the field agent, regardless of the expert’s physical disability, as long as they have the qualifications to provide such support. This is important because any firm who embraces RAR technology, is enabled with the ability to hire wounded and disabled veterans whose new mission becomes to support the field personnel. We are working with our elected representatives to develop a state sponsored stipend that provides a 3% to 7% reimbursement to firms who acquire our technology and hire wounded and disabled workers to fill key support roles.
In addition to the wounded veterans who can be re-trained and employed into mainstream society through the power of Remote Assisted Reality based technologies, Smart Cities now have the option to also include civilians with mobility related disabilities to also be included into mainstream commerce and value added services.
