The A-UGV provides outdoor surveillance, security, safety and maintenance inspection patrols. An optional feature can detect toxicity levels, capture images and sounds, and use light detection and ranging to measure variable distances. The mobility, reliability and scalability of Rajant’s network were key reasons for the company’s selection, a statement said.
“The Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV outdoor security robot is a strategic investment for companies that desire a visible deterrent to potential intruders as well as an A-UGV capable of managing repetitive tasks in dangerous environments,” said Cliff Quiroga, vice president of Sharp robotics business development. “Capturing video, audio and environmental data, and communicating that information to a command-and-control center, requires an advanced network. Rajant’s Kinetic Mesh wireless technology gives INTELLOS a best-in-class mission-critical network infrastructure.”
