A medium-sized South Korean company has developed a security service robot that is able to patrol and inspect for safety issues by combining CCTV and various sensors.
SEO (President Lee Hyeong-gak and Kim Ho-gun), which specializes in security surveillance cameras, announced on Monday that it is preparing to launch its security service robot “ARVO” that is able to quickly respond to accidents regardless of location and time.
The company has developed ARVO by enhancing self-driving and image stabilization, wireless charging, and sound tracking technologies. The robot is able to detect unusual signs through its fixed CCTV and IoT (Internet of Things) device and it can also be connected to a central system and be controlled remotely and obtain information from the field.
It can also patrol basic infrastructures and storages for expensive equipment and materials and prevent disasters and thefts and monitor dark and narrow spaces such as boiler room of a power generation plant using various sensors and cameras that are integrated with sensors.
With its various environment sensors, it can detect radon, temperature and humidity, fine dust, and carbon monoxide. It can also contribute to eliminating accidents involving safety by preventing various risks such as gas and fire in advance when high-risk work needs to be done.
