Vigilus Mobile Camera Platform Invited To Exhibit At Inaugural Security Robotics Zone At ESX In Nashville

"Having an area dedicated to robots specifically designed for the security market indicates the need for this type of technology"

DENVER, June 18, 2013 -- Vigilant Robots, Colorado-based manufacturer of the Vigilus™ Mobile Camera Platform, an autonomous patrol-and-report security robot, has been invited to exhibit at the inaugural Security Robotics Zone within ESX, the Electronic Security Expo, in Nashville this week.


"We were thrilled to find out there had been an actual section of the exhibit floor carved out for robotics," said CEO Dr. Louise Gunderson. "Having an area dedicated to robots specifically designed for the security market indicates the need for this type of technology," she continued. "Most important to us, however, is the focus on Security Integrators. This show is for them, and it is the Security Integrator who is looking for the cutting-edge solutions for their customers that we hope to connect with this week."

"ESX is the perfect venue to show our robots, and we'll have one on patrol both days of the exhibition. We want to show integrators that while an autonomous robot is high-tech, and a perfect addition to some security teams, it is composed of mostly off-the-shelf components so service is a simple matter." Pam Gheysar, Vice President of Business Development continued, "Our product offers a less-than one year ROI for the end-client, a profit at the sale for the Security Integrator who installs the robot, and RMR via an annual service contract and that is a triple win."

The award-winning robot (ASIS Accolades Sept 2012, SIA New Product Showcase Honorable Mention) may receive a third security industry award in as many competitions. "Our research has paid off; we asked experts in the security industry what our robot had to do to be useful and that is what we built," said Dr. Louise Gunderson. "Moving forward we will continue to listen to industry experts as we develop future generations. Those Intetgrators who add robots to their inventory of products and service skills will help us form the future of autonomous security robotics and that is very exciting!"

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
