Drones and robots are headed to ISC West 2017

Spencer Ives for Security Systems News:  Drones and robots will have a notable presence at ISC West 2017 with the show’s inaugural Unmanned Security Expo @ ISC West.

Incorporating this new technology fits ISC West’s development. “This is part of our regular process here at ISC. We always look at the show as a constantly evolving entity. We never want to deliver the exact same event year after year. We want to constantly be on the forefront with new technology and really reflecting the future of the industry,” Sherida Sessa, industry vice president for ISC Events, told Security Systems News.

The Unmanned Security Expo will have its own section of the show floor, marked by banners and different colored carpeting. The area will feature a “flying cage” that allows ground-based robots and aerial drones to display their movement capabilities. The expo currently has about 30 exhibitors, according to Sessa, with more still joining as of mid-March.

In the very early phases of the Unmanned Security Expo, ISC West was looking primarily at aerial drones. “We’ve learned that really it goes much further than that and, so, the Unmanned Security Expo reflects that,” said Sessa. “It’s not just the drones in the air—although that is a significant portion of it. There’s a nice selection of ground robots … as well as all of the software and applications that support those products.”  Full Article:

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.
