Gopher Protocol (OTCQB: GOPH) CTO Danny Rittman has announced that it has expanded its tracking technology functionality to include drone tracking.
As quoted in the press release:
Danny comments on the expansion of the Company’s mobile tracking technology to revolutionize the emerging drone industry starting with a proprietary security function.
Danny tells Investor Ideas that Gopher has recently begun R&D to modify its existing product offerings of mobile tracking to include a drone tracking security feature. This new feature includes a cutting edge enhancement that will enable trigger drone operation by “obeying” a remote order being transmitted using the GopherInsight™ radio technology from any remote location. When this phase of development is complete, the system (hardware & software) will deploy a drone response to a potential crime scene and may provide law enforcement with real-time video of the scene. Gopher bought the domain dronerespond.com and will present its development on said domain.
“Here we are implementing our existing tracking technology within drones, enabling accurate location and dispatch in case of emergency. In addition, our future AI engine will provide the drone with learning capabilities regarding locations, shortcut paths, and more,” said Dr. Rittman.
At this point, due to confidentiality, Gopher is not disclosing all of their upcoming features but Gopher has extensive, advanced plans to embed its technology and concepts in drones, creating an Intelligent Drone.
Drone tracking and identification has become a major issue within the industry. According to recent news from the FAA, “The first meeting of the UAS Identification and Tracking Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC) on June 21-23 advanced key policies of concern to the FAA, industry and law enforcement.”
The FAA has also published the ARC’s charter and the list of 74 members as of June 8, 2017 including Amazon Prime Air, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Ford and Verizon. https://www.faa.gov/news/updates/media/UAS_ID_ARC_Confirmed_Membership.pdf
According to its charter the ARC will: Identify, categorize and recommend available and emerging technologies for the remote identification and tracking of UAS; Identify requirements for meeting the security and public safety needs of law enforcement, homeland defense, and national security communities for remote identification and tracking; evaluate the feasibility and affordability of the available technical solutions, and determine how well they address the needs of law enforcement and air traffic control communities.
