Mesa, AZ, April 1, 2009 -- Iveda Solutions is showing off again, this time at ISC West in Las Vegas. They are giving people a taste of how their security applications will be mobilized in the future. (Actually, the future is now, as the data infrastructure that makes their solution so robust has already been built and is currently in use.)

In addition to showing their technology and services, John Deere (the heavy equipment manufacturer) will be sharing space in their booth to show their product, the R-Gator. It is a an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) vehicle designed for patrolling areas that might be dangerous or inefficient for people to patrol. This includes huge installations like wind farms and power plants, or even border patrol areas. It carries on-board cameras that can be connected to the Iveda Solutions data center via wireless broadband cellular or other connections to the Internet. This is a really cool application and all press representatives are invited to swing by booth 38027 to see it.

This is the introduction of the proof of concept designed to help companies or agencies with large properties or facilities secure their locations. The R-Gator, configured for security applications, is an adaptable, high-tech, robotic surveillance vehicle, that helps security services and organizations by allowing more coverage of large or remote areas where it is not safe or economically feasible to have human presence. This is especially good news for those who are faced with diminishing budgets for security personnel. It is ideally suited for areas that are spread out, often with loosely defined borders, or huge areas of unprotected property, that can be easily accessible to uninvited guests.

Iveda Solutions brings video transport and hosting capabilities to the R-Gator for an even more complete security solution. John Deere’s involvement with Iveda Solutions signifies the mission critical needs for commercial integration of the highest quality and service levels. Centralized remote management of IP video, and other data, needs a robust infrastructure to handle both the potential capacity and magnitude for R-Gator deployments across the country or around the world. Iveda Solutions is the proven leader in IP video hosting and real-time surveillance services with a true mission critical infrastructure backed by the nation’s top tier-4 data center capable of providing the R-Gator centralized remote surveillance capabilities.

The R-Gator has been developed for patrolling large, open areas like:

• Border Patrol areas
• Wind Farms
• Railroads
• Airport perimeters
• Utility companies
• Pipelines
• Chemical plants
• Large Construction sites
• Disaster zones.

The R-Gator is offered to the US military (www.deere.com/en_US/contractsales/fedmilitarysales/cce/r_gator/r_gator.html), and is now being made available to the commercial sector.
