SMP Robotics S5.1 Robot Deployed at Shopping and Warehouse Center to Enhance Security and Intelligent Monitoring

SMP Robotics is pleased to announce that its S5.1 security guard robot has been deployed at a large, U.S.-based shopping and warehouse center where the autonomous solution will monitor the perimeter and the adjacent parking lot to improve security and efficiency.

The S5.1 security guard robot patrols from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m, focusing on 0.8 miles of the parking area. The robotic solution monitors parked cars and surrounding areas to prevent loitering on the property. In the case an unusual activity is identified, the robot will transmit an alarm signal to the security command center.

Robotics Assistance Devices (RAD), the exclusive North American assembly and distribution partner for SMP Robotics, worked closely with the retail leader to customize the RAD solution. RAD equipped the robot with state-of-the-art artificial intelligence technologies, which enable the solution to operate in an autonomous manner and execute swift identification. The SMP S5.1 security guard serves as a force multiplier and removes security personnel from potentially dangerous situations, reducing liability. The combination of human personnel with robotic technologies creates a strong value proposition that results in new levels of security and streamlined operations.
"We are very pleased with the success of the S5.1 security guard robot's implementation at this leading retail facility," said Leo Ryzhenko, CEO, SMP Robotics. "The SMP all-terrain system combined with RAD's artificial intelligence technology elevates the S5.1 robot to perform at the levels the retail sector requires. The combination of the two technologies delivers the ideal solution to anyone looking to augment their security force with robotics."
SMP Robotics is currently expanding its worldwide distribution network and welcome new distributors.

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.
