The days of futuristic robot security guards have finally arrived. Viewed as a potential replacement for human security guards, robot security guards operate more like mobile surveillance machines, collecting far larger amounts of data than a human ever could. These unmanned robot security guards are popping up in a wide variety of locations to provide increased security. Examples of areas where you may begin to find these guards are outside of offices, manufacturing plants, and even malls and other public spaces. To learn more about some of the key components and capabilities that these innovative bots offer, continue reading.
The data-collecting capabilities of unmanned robot security guards are largely contingent on the presence of numerous sensors. For example, Cobalt released a line of security bots that contain roughly 60 sensors in each bot.
Such sensors may include day-night cameras, thermal sensors, motion sensors, and badge readers. The presence of these sensors allows the bots to provide low-level surveillance by gathering large quantities of data in various forms ranging from facial recognition scans to license plate information. In some cases, robot security guards can even scan phones. In doing so, the bot can scan unfamiliar devices and keep any unwanted individuals from certain areas.
The large amount of video and thermal imaging data that needs to be processed in real-time often requires a 10G backbone on the robot. Antaira’s line of industrial-grade 10G Ethernet switches has been designed with this application in mind. This line of switches includes Gigabit PoE ports for GigE Vision cameras and also multiple 10G ports for connection to an industrial PC.
Another key component of unmanned robot security guards is high-speed communications. Security robots typically use embedded IEEE 802.11AC gigabit wireless adaptors to process bandwidth-intensive real-time data applications. Antaira’s line of industrial wireless access points is an ideal solution for these types of scenarios. The ARX-7234-AC-PD series, ARY-7234-AC-PD series, and ARS-7231-AC series wireless access points are designed to support up to 867Mbps of high-throughput wireless data transmissions. Gigabit Ethernet ports ensure seamless interconnections back to high-speed backbones.
By using industrial access points, unmanned robot security guards are able to transmit continuous data streams back to monitoring stations where personnel can take action or alert police of possible threats. Without such transmission capabilities, these new centuries would not be able to provide the support and protection organizations are looking for heading into the future.
