ARON, A FUTURISTIC FREE WI-FI ALTERNATIVE
An American company named Surefire is well known to produce the illumination products and using the other daily devices. In 2018, CES unveiled ARON as its new communication system that works without internet.
Whereas ARON stands for “augmented reality optical narrowcasting”. Surefire said that technology is based on the Alexander Graham Bell’s invention Photophone. It is a type of wireless data transfer system which uses the infrared lights and optical beacons as well. Moreover, it has a range of 400 meters in the daytime and almost 1200 meters in the night time.
However, the product’s web page states that ARON establishes the data-rate, range and miniaturization like never before. Rather it offers an unprecedented power, flexibility, and freedom. Thus allowing the users an easy access to AR surrounding views and fetching the information as well.
ARON has the ability to transmit the type of digital information where it can be very easily installed in a vehicle and even in a phone. You can also transfer the data without any effective cost.
Apart from being free, this technology could turn out to be useful in the areas with limited internet connectivity. It can also be used to establish a communication channel in times of natural disaster that can wipe out the existing communication networks.
