Chinese researchers have announced a security guard robot
to help keep the peace in public places.
This is the first security guard robot developed in China.
The robot was jointly developed by the Civil Aviation Univer-
sity of China and Tianjin YAAN Technology Electronics Co.
Ltd., the robot can patrol residential zones, airports, ware-
houses, department stores and other public places.
The two-wheel differential drive robot, looking like a small car,
is 3 ft. (90 cm) long, 1.7 ft (55 cm) wide and 2.6 ft (75 cm) high,
and weighs 125.25 lbs (55 kg).
It can move independently on cement pavements and climb slopes
with a 15 to 20 gradient.
The robot can move freely on fixed or specially designed routes.
It uses both a pan-tilt-zoom camera as well as wide-angle
camera; ultrasonic sensors help guide the Chinese security
guard robot in avoiding obstacles autonomously.
It can send information and images to a central control
station for interpretation.
