Sharp Electronics' Robot for Security, Surveillance and Maintenance Safety Inspections Added to U.S. Security Associates' P3 (Prepare. Predict. Prevent.(SM)) Technology Platform

MONTVALE, N.J., March 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharp Robotics Business Development (SRBD), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC), announced the appointment of U.S. Security Associates (USA) as an authorized guard services reseller of the Sharp INTELLOS™ Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle (A-UGV). Introduced to consumers of security technologies and human guard services by Sharp at the ASIS International September 2016 security exhibition in Orlando, Florida, the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV is a cost-effective, multi-terrain, mobile sensor platform that can capture video, audio and environmental data, while providing a visible deterrent. The data collected by the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV can enhance outdoor surveillance, security, safety and maintenance inspections, helping organizations meet the challenges of an ever-changing security landscape by augmenting a skilled guard force.


Cliff Quiroga, Vice President of SRBD, lauded the relationship with USA. "Robots in security will help protect people, infrastructure and assets. To Sharp, protecting people means caring first for those who care for the rest of us - our frontline security officers. The human workforce can be availed of tedious, repetitive and often dangerous tasks. Instead, their attention can be focused on more intelligent-based work."

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
