VIVOTEK Joins Enova Robotics Police Robot Project to Enforce COVID-19 Lockdown in Tunisia

Each "P-Guard" Robot Delivers 360 Degree, Zero Blind-Spot Surround Imagery by Utilizing Two VIVOTEK MS9390-HV 180 Degree Panoramic Network Cameras

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 4, 2020 - In times of uncertainty, as a global leading IP surveillance solution provider, VIVOTEK (TWSE: 3454) is honored to be part of the police robot "P-Guard" project in Tunisia. Produced by ENOVA Robotics, the P-Guard robot has been deployed on the streets by the interior ministry of Tunisia to impose lockdown restrictions on citizens and to help slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).


The police robot, "P-Guard," was originally invented for security patrols of sensitive open areas. To deliver 360 degree, zero blind-spot surround imagery, each P-Guard robot is equipped with two VIVOTEK MS9390-HV 180 degree panoramic network cameras. Since its debut in 2018, this has been VIVOTEK's most iconic multi-sensor camera. The MS9390-HV features dual 4-megapixel wide-angle lenses, seamless 180 degree panoramic views, and IR illuminators effective up to 20 meters, making it the ideal camera to provide superb image quality for both day and night surveillance. Also, the face-shaped housing design of MS9390-HV is perfectly matched to the robot appearance and makes the P-Guard robot look friendlier to citizens.

With its field-beating cameras, Lidar technology, and extensive network connectivity, the P-Guard can be remotely operated to perform security missions to all corners of the city, making sure that people are staying at home during the nationwide quarantine.

"Enova Robotics' core philosophy is knowing today what our customer needs tomorrow," stated Mr. Anis Sahbani, CEO of Enova Robotics. "We will help people handle the most difficult, dangerous or repetitive tasks with artificial intelligence robots."

Added Alex Liao, President of VIVOTEK, "Over recent years, VIVOTEK has aspired to become the ‘Eye' in IoT. We believe our products have unlimited potential to be integrated into a wide variety of system applications, and we look forward to more cooperation with cross-industry partners. While the world is facing a challenge that no one has imagined before, VIVOTEK hopes to contribute to society by securing people's safety in smarter ways and is prepared to fight any future crisis together with all our global partners."
