The coronavirus pandemic creates significant difficulties for the companies providing asset security and protection services. Patrolling guards are at risk of getting infected while being on duty. To mitigate these risks and improve the quality of security personnel, AI Distribution, based in Los Angeles, US deploys security robots manufactured by SMP Robotics. Starting from Spring 2020, robots participate in outdoor protection and monitoring, together with security officers. The robots work in fully autonomous mode, constantly patrolling the designated route; while security officers monitor the territory from a safe area or dispatch center. The presence of autonomously moving robots covering the protected sites is a significant obstacle for any out of pattern scenarios. The intelligent video surveillance system installed on the robot can detect human intrusion at a distance of up to 200 ft. The management and the company’s business customers admit the efficiency of the usage of robots for security purposes and recognize the business need for new incoming orders. The relevance of the employment of security robots increases substantially over in anticipation of the second wave of COVID-19.
