A security guard robot
Secom has introduced in Japan a new robotic security guard prototype. The machine can be used to securely transfer funds, following human security agents and avoiding obstacles or stairways when it is moving. It obeys to voice orders and is equipped with a wireless camera and many sensors.
The 380 kg robot can travel at 4 km/h and can be completed with several defense weapons, such as sound or lamp menaces, electric shocks or smoking device.
