SMP Robotics Autonomous Security Robots Keep Getting Smarter

S5 HD, the new version of S5 security robot is now enhanced with video management solution, security guard detection and object recognition is coming soon

SMP Robotics ( a manufacturer of autonomous mobile robots presented the new version of its S5 Security Robot enhanced with video management solution and demonstrated the prototype of the security guard detection and object recognition functionality to 29,000 security professionals at ISC West Conference in Las Vegas in the beginning of April.

The new functionality of the S5 HD Security Robots includes:
Integration with Milestone Systems Video Management solution. The Milestone video management software collects video from the robot built-in cameras and streams to the monitors allowing security officers to view what the video captures.
Security guard detection and object recognition functionality. The users will soon have the option to enhance S5 security robots with NVIDIA Jetson TX2 Module. Al embedded supercomputer can detect the security guard uniforms and distinguish them from the intruders. The prototype of the intruder recognition system was released leading up to ISC West conference. The feature was tested and demonstrated at the INVIDIA ISC West booth. The commercial version will become available in the summer of 2017.
S5 Autonomous Security Robot was presented at ISC West by SMP Robotics distributors Robotic Assistance Devices and WeSecure. Speaking at "How Drones and Video Technology are Redefining Situational Awareness" panel, Steve Reinharz, the founder and CEO of Robotic Assistance Devices (RAD), said: "S5 security robot is fully autonomous, it can operate for roughly 12 hours, covering the distance of 10 miles on a single charge and is programmed to do different things based on time of the day and geo-location, report back to on-site guard or whatever the SLPs are for that particular enterprise. The ability to detect and identify humans and vehicles is taking that degree of autonomy to the next level."
"ISC West demonstrated that the interest in autonomous security robots continues to grow and S5 remains the leader in this segment," said Marina Kahl, VP of Marketing of SMP Robotics. "To remain an industry leader, we must be at the forefront of innovation and SMP Robotics is able to do that thanks to our close working relationships with our distributors. They are an invaluable resource for education, training, information, support and candid customer feedback."
S5 HD Security Robots are available through companys ever growing distributor network. The SMP Robotics has dedicated distributors around the world and thanks to them S5 security patrolling robots are being used by an increasing number of organizations around the world. The company continues to expand its distribution network.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
