"Land Cruiser Emergency Network" that can construct a mesh network with off-road vehicles and send rescue signals even in remote areas without a network
If you get into trouble where you can not use mobile lines, it is certain that you will have trouble getting help. Troubles in such an adverse environment can directly lead to the danger of life, making a mesh network using the popular four-wheel drive vehicle "toyota / land cruiser" that does not even have a bad road and is easy to drive, and emergency Experiments are being conducted to propagate signals to create mobile networks.

More than 65% of the land in Australia is still a "network-unplugged area" where mobile networks such as mobile phones can not be used at all. It's huge that this area is wider than the whole of Europe.
If you travel on this desert, wasteland mountains, mountainous areas, you have to bear the risk that you can not contact anyone.
In the place without such a network, if the car breaks down ... ...
It is unlikely to encounter the danger of life.
A project to build an emergency network that saves lives in a network-unfriendly area is "LandCruiser Emergency Network"
"In the area such as the outback of the desert area of Australia, the share of the land cruiser in the area cars will be 90%," said Brad Kram, Toyota / Australia.
In harsh land, land crediters with high reliability are overwhelmingly endorsed.
According to Mr. Kram, even the most popular land cruiser in the world has the largest market share in Australia.
It is impossible to eliminate the risk of accidents and failures even though the land cruiser has high running performance and durability.
To prepare for risks in the rough earth leads to the protection of the driver's life.
Toyota · Australia and Flinders University jointly develop "Land Cruiser Emergency Network".
A yellow object that a man holds is a unit for the LandCruiser Emergency Network.
Cylindrical capsules are attached to the window pane.
After plugging in, OK.
This capsule is a network terminal that can transmit and receive Wi-Fi and UHF radio waves.
When I give a rescue signal in case of emergency ...
The Land Cruiser Emergency Network terminal installed in a land cruiser running within a radius of 25 kilometers catches a signal.
I will send that information to the Land Cruiser within a radius of 25 kilometers.
The emergency signal with geotagged position information propagates like a bucket brigade one after another via a land cruiser.
LandCruiser Emergency Network terminals are used on the interplanetary InternetDelay tolerance networkIt also said that it corresponds.
Emergency signal messages that are transmitted one after the other are sent to the nearest rescue headquarters.
After that, the rescue helicopter is based on the geotag, and it is a mechanism to go to help trouble place.
"The encounter between landcruiser and this mesh network system is wonderful."
Toyota · Australia and Flinders University are conducting mesh network construction experiment by LandCruiser Emergency Network using 10 land candlers. If the LandCruiser Emergency Network is put to practical use, the reliability to Land Cruiser will be further increased.
