Today’s buses are safer and more efficient than ever. School Buss Fleets aren't the only ones getting tech upgrades, ask us about what tech can do for your fleet.
Asset management is a systematic process of developing, operating, maintaining, upgrading, and disposing of assets in the most cost-effective manner (including all costs, risks and performance attributes). Companies do a great job at managing their product inventory, but don't often have time, knowledge, or software infrastructure in place to manage all the data that goes into technology infrastructure management. Let us design a custom data management system for your technology, and help you manage life cycles, service, and more.
ROAD-MAPPING & CONSULTATION
Technology road-mapping is a flexible planning technique to support strategic and long-range planning, by matching short-term and long-term goals with specific technology solutions. Road-mapping techniques help companies to survive in turbulent environments, and help them to plan in a more holistic way to include financial and non-financial goals and drive towards a more sustainable development. Developing a road map has three major uses. It helps reach a consensus about a set of needs and the technologies required to satisfy those needs, it provides a mechanism to help forecast technology developments, and it provides a framework to help plan and coordinate technology developments.

Augmented reality is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information, sometimes across multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somato-sensory and olfactory modalities. Common applications include heads up data, training, and information displays, product media and information linked to product locality, and virtual representation of future project developments such as architecture and construction planning.
International studies indicate that the use of smart mobile devices and their accompanying educational applications (apps) can revolutionize young children’s learning experiences. Although there is a vast array of educational apps for preschoolers, they are not actually educational in their majority. To evaluate educational mobile apps, we suggest creating a rubric in four areas: content, design, functionality, and technical quality. We have found the best solution to be guided custom curriculum development.
Customized system control has evolved substantially over the last decade.

Today, new technologies such as smartphones and social media platforms offer new ways to communicate with the public, and the information ecosystem is much broader. Include additional official channels, such as government social media accounts, opt-in short message service (SMS)-based alerting systems, and reverse 911 systems. Integrate mainstream media outlets and weather applications on connected devices; and unofficial channels, such as first person reports via social media.
Many media and entertainment organizations struggle with the challenges of content storage, transformation, and distribution. As production standards rise from HD to UHD/4K, 8K, and beyond, the amount of data associated with any given project grows exponentially. Adding to these concerns are the rapidly changing methods of bringing media content to consumers.

MOTION SENSING & TRACKING
When it comes to the advanced capabilities that many camera and IR based security systems have, there are two mentioned most often – motion detection and motion tracking. Sometimes uttered in the same breath as is if they were interchangeable, motion detection and motion tracking are two very different things in the world of security technology. We can tell you what you need to know about both motion detection and motion tracking to differentiate one from the other, and find the solution that works for you.
NETWORKING FOR AUDIO & VIDEO
AV over IP stands for “Audio-Visual over Internet Protocol”. It is the transmission of audio-visual data over a network such as a LAN, WAN, or the internet. As opposed to traditional AV environments, AV over IP (also known as AV/IP) refers to the use of network equipment to transmit and switch video and audio. Specific networking hardware is sometimes required. Factors across all network topology layers both physical and virtual must be considered to properly distribute media over vast networks with quality and efficiency.
PUBLIC ADDRESS SYSTEMS
A public address system is an electronic system comprising microphones, amplifiers, loudspeakers, and related equipment. It increases the apparent volume of a human voice, musical instrument, or other acoustic sound source or recorded sound or music. We can provide you with a customized solution no matter the scope of your project.

SMART BUILDING AUTOMATION
Smart Buildings, or building automation is the automatic centralized control of a building's heating, ventilation and air conditioning, lighting and other systems through a building management system or building automation system (BAS). The objectives of building automation are improved occupant comfort, efficient operation of building systems, reduction in energy consumption and operating costs, and improved life cycle of utilities. The future of smart building management is here today.
SOUND MASKING & ACOUSTICS
Sound masking is an ambient sound distribution system, it plays a sound similar to that of airflow, that’s specifically engineered to the frequency of human speech. With this, you can target conversational distractions and make them less distracting. Adding sound to a space actually makes the space seem quieter. It sounds counter-intuitive but it’s true. This is because the added sound reduces the intelligibility of human speech. When you can’t understand what someone is saying, their words are less distracting — in fact, you probably don’t even notice them.
TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT PLANS
The impact technology failure has on effective communication and collaboration in the meeting space is expensive. Postponed or relocated meetings, inability to view the prepared content, external attendees unable to see or hear are a few of the common issues found in improperly configured systems. Most of us wouldn’t buy a car and not service it, or set up infrastructure without maintenance arrangements. Because AV is often sourced through the construction process, or because the default support arrangement is ineffective, AV support is often overlooked until it is too late. Remote Design Group is committed to changing the technology support paradigm with a combination of Prevention and Cure services to decrease down time, and enable real time status monitoring.

Unified communications (UC) is a business and marketing concept describing the integration of enterprise communication services such as instant messaging (chat), presence information, voice (including IP telephony), mobility features (including extension mobility and single number reach), audio, web & video.
Unified communications has become an important part of our everyday business lives, affecting the way we conduct business or simply communicate with each other.
The term access control refers to the practice of restricting entrance to a property, a building, or a room to authorized persons. Physical access control can be achieved by a human, through mechanical means such as locks and keys, or through technological means such as access control systems. the latest innovations employ pass-codes, smart badges, key fobs, and bio-metric access for entry. Granting access has never been easier with full support for mobile apps and remote control and monitoring. Remote Design Group can provide consultation and design, system penetration testing, and help manage your assets. We also provide road mapping, and help managing vendor / manufacturer relationships.
Video surveillance involves the act of recording or observing a scene and looking for specific behaviors that are improper or that may indicate the emergence or existence of improper behavior. The video surveillance design process includes the identification of areas of concern and the identification of specific cameras or groups of cameras that may be able to view those areas. If it is possible to identify schedules when security trends have occurred or may be likely to occur, that is also helpful to the process.
