Research and Markets: First Responder, Border Patrol, Homeland Security, Law Enforcement, and Security Robots: First Responder Type Robot Markets Are Anticipated To Reach $1.6 Billion By 2018

First Responder Type Robot markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the next generation robots systems provide a way to improve law enforcement services delivery in the communities of the world

DUBLIN--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pfmmfx/first_responder_b) has announced the addition of WinterGreen Research, Inc.'s new report "First Responder, Border Patrol, Homeland Security, Law Enforcement, and Security Robots: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2012 to 2018" to their offering.


WinterGreen Research announces that it has published a new study First Responder Type Robots: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2012 to 2018. The 2012 study has 463 pages, 183 tables and figures. Worldwide First Responder Type Robot markets are poised to achieve significant growth as the next generation robots systems provide a way to improve law enforcement services delivery in the communities of the world.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the study, "In the new global economy supported by the Internet, communication between countries has become ubiquitous, enterprise teams are comprised of people from many different countries working together to make the enterprise work. In this context the need for homeland security and first responder actions by one country against another country becomes far less necessary. In this context, first responder robots can be deployed situationally to achieve control of those who would disrupt or steal from law abiding citizens."

The iRobot 210 Negotiator is a surveillance robot for public safety professionals is illustrative of devices that are likely to proliferate to every law enforcement agency worldwide. The iRobot 210 Negotiator performs basic reconnaissance. The robot increases situational awareness in dangerous scenarios. Instead of going into a dangerous situation and getting shot, it is better to send in a robot.

First Responder Type Robot markets at $440.4 million in 2011 are anticipated to reach $1.6 billion by 2018 as next generation robots are introduced to manage situational response to community threats. Robots will see increasing use in protecting borders.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
