ALL-TERRAIN ROBOT FOR PARK SECURITY
China’s New Shougang High-end Industry Comprehensive Services Park selected UBTech’s all-terrain patrol robot ATRIS to provide intelligent security support. The robot offers enhanced efficiency of security patrols in the park, while decreasing the park’s security staff costs. ATRIS will assist in creating a quick and flexible smart security system. The robot’s autonomous navigation feature, U-SLAM, will let the park create customized security patrols. ATRIS can adapt to various road and weather conditions, and it can provide accurate individual identification. Additionally, the robot has an “SOS” emergency button that automatically calls the park’s security center for help when an emergency situation is identified.
