Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI), a developer of unmanned vehicle systems, and Sharp have announced the launch of the Sharp Intellos Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle (A-UGV), an automated security robot that can capture video, audio and environmental data as it patrols assigned areas.

“When it comes to the shifting demands of private and public sector security, the industry integrators and their customers will now have a safe, reliable and cost-effective robotic tool working to safeguard people, assets and infrastructure,” states Doug Albregts, President, CEO, and Chairman of Sharp Electronics Corporation.

Similar to the recently unveiled CNH Industrial autonomous concept tractor, this security robot is built on ASI’s hardware and software platform. Mobius, ASI’s command and control software, enables a single operator to oversee the coordination and cooperation of multiple A-UGVs.

Onboard the vehicle, the ASI electronics and software facilitate the fusion of multiple sensors like cameras, lasers, and gas and chemical sensors to help the vehicle autonomously perform its missions. ASI relies on Rajant radios to carry vital communications information from the autonomous vehicle back to its servers. This real-time data is relayed to a command center operator who can then monitor the video and analytics. ASI’s agile technology platform will also allow the adoption of any new and relevant technology into the system.

Mel Torrie, CEO of ASI said, “It is great to see solutions built on ASI’s technology platform being rolled out by world leading companies in industries like mining, agriculture, automotive, construction, military and now security. Sharp has been brilliant in their rollout planning to ensure scaling to high quantities very quickly and we are thrilled to be their partner.”
