Digital Operations Smart Services (DOSS)

What is DOSS?

Digital Operations Smart Services (DOSS) is an operations management platform for static and mobile sensor platforms, including robotics. With DOSS, we are developing new capabilities in real-time analytics, sensor data and deep learning techniques to power flexible sensors, robotic solutions and our digital operations.

What are the features available?

  • Real-time analytics: Using standalone static sensors and sensor payloads mounted on robots, DOSS is developing video stream analytics and other deep learning-enabled capabilities, including:

    • Thermal sensing with human face detection (SPOTON v1.0)

    • Safe-distancing measurements (distance between two people)

    • People counting

    • Face mask detection

  • Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) control: BVLOS control allows robots to be piloted remotely anywhere over a 4G or 5G connection.

  • Robotics autonomy: DOSS is developing large-scale outdoor robotics autonomy to enhance remote operational capacity and efficiency.

Our team uses machine learning models (especially deep learning) and techniques like computer vision, Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM), and Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) in autonomy development.

  • ‘Follow-me’ and Flock control: These features enable robots to work together with human operators and other robots.

What are its sub-products?

  • Robotics C2 platform

DOSS is developing key software capabilities under a command and control (C2) platform for autonomous mobile robots (AMRs). This lightweight and flexible platform works with any robotic system to operate AMRs over land, air and sea – usually for tasks that are monotonous, high-risk or unsuitable for humans to perform.

SPOT

SPOT is a four-legged robot built by Boston Dynamics and the first robotic platform we are developing DOSS software capabilities on.

  • Smart systems and sensor payloads

DOSS is also developing smart sensor systems that can be deployed as standalone static sensors or as payloads mounted on robots.

SPOTON

SPOTON (v1.0) is a smart thermal scanner, and the first smart sensor payload we are developing using the DOSS platform.

What are some upcoming plans for DOSS?

DOSS will soon offer seamless integration with our smart sensor and robotic systems via APIs. We are also working to enable our sensor and robotic systems to transfer sensor data into Sensesurround, a 3D C2 platform for sensor data.

We are developing large-scale outdoor autonomy and other software capabilities to improve remote robotic operations. Autonomous mobile robots, including drones and underwater robots (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles and Remotely Operated Vehicles), will provide us with 360° real-time sensor data and smart operations over land, air and sea.

We are also developing new smart sensor payload capabilities under SPOTON 2.0.
