SiliconFreak -> Fight Intruders With New Robot Security Guard (8/5/2004 9:10:09 AM)

A Japanese security company has developed a robot which it says can deter intruders.

Tokyo-based Secom says its six-wheeled Robot X can be either remotely controlled or pre-programmed, reports New Scientist.

It can chase intruders, take high definition video pictures of them, issue loud warnings and release a dense, billowing cloud of smoke to frighten them off.

Robot X will either relay live spoken warnings from a security guard in a remote command post or play a pre-recorded message.

A Secom spokesman says it hopes that if the smokescreen does not frighten off the intruder, it will at least confuse them until a human guard reaches the scene.

Robot X is made from reinforced plastic and is a metre high. Weighing 120 kilograms, it travels at up to 10 kilometres per hour for up to 24 kilometres on one battery charge.

Secom plans to rent out the robots at £1,500 a month to airports, ports and hazardous industrial sites.
