The surveillance robot, which will be introduced under a partnership agreement with Secom, can autonomously navigate patrol routes, using a laser sensor to identify its location. Capturing images with its built-in cameras, it is also capable of monitoring various areas. After the patrol, the robot stops at a designated position and oversees the surroundings.
