Advanced Security Group, a New Zealand electronic security integrator, have announced the arrival of their fully autonomous security robot. For more information see the IDTechEx report on mobile robots.
"We continue to embrace new technology and make this available to our customers. The robots are faster, safer and more cost effective than the traditional security guard model," says Group CEO, Mike Marr.
The robots remove the need to put a human guard in to a dangerous situation and work alongside traditional guards saving customers 30-50%, pricing starting at just $12.00 per hour.
A reliable security solution, providing surveillance, presence and peace of mind. The robot can patrol continuously for up to 20 hours; autonomously following a patrol route, avoiding obstacles and notifying of any significant security events or changes. The robot will autonomously re-charge itself and continue patrols without human support.
The system is highly configurable and its inbuilt artificial intelligence allows it to learn and understand its environment/terrain and make decisions on routing and obstacle avoidance. Utilising the ground robots, provides a significant 'Presence' to a site, and allows the surveillance to be completed without the gaps that are a limitation of fixed camera systems.
The introduction of robots into a security system will allow the guard force to be optimised and only committed to incidents where the threat can be properly assessed. The robot can be used effectively indoors or outdoors and can patrol large areas very effectively.
They are fully equipped with closed circuit television cameras that operate smart technology with these streaming back to a centralised operator.
This product release follows VigilAir, sister company of Advanced Security, who announced their integrated security drone response system in November last year. The VigilAir system integrates drones with electronic security systems to deliver smarter outcomes to customers.
