VCU

Guide unmanned vehicles safely with the system control from Alpha Robotics.

The VCU (Vehicle Control Unit) is a system control developed by Alpha Robotics consisting of various hardware and software specifications to safely guide unmanned vehicles (UAV/UGV). Here, the available base vehicle is not so important initially. Rather, the focus is on enabling the respective system operators to interact with their system in a way that is weather-independent, ergonomically smart and, if necessary, of long duration.

VCU II Alpha Wolf R1 | Sprinter

The perfect addition to the Alpha Wolf R1 as a tactical unit

In addition to the mobile remote control solution of the Alpha Wolf R1 via tablet, the VCU II based on a Mercedes Sprinter chassis complements the Alpha Wolf R1 to form a tactical unit for command and control over long distances and to allow the Alpha Wolf R1 to penetrate danger areas independently of a person. It is controlled via a long range radio connection. The operators in the VCU are supported here by aerial reconnaissance using drones with normal and thermal imaging cameras and by the vehicle-mounted cameras of the Alpha Wolf R1.
 By integrating the VCU II into the Alpha TacticNet it is possible to make the drone images and those of the Alpha Wolf R1 visible in the Alpha TacitcNet app for operations personnel with authorised access.
