On November 27, Sohgo Security Services (ALSOK) unveiled a new
security system that relies on teamwork between robots and human
The Reborg-Q security robot weighs 200lbs (90kg) and measures
4.5ft (130cm) by 2ft (65cm) by 2.1ft (70cm).
It can be programmed to automatically patrol a preset course, or a
joystick can be used to control it remotely.
The robot can also be equipped with a function to control elevators,
enabling it to move from floor to floor while making its rounds.
While on patrol, four cameras mounted in the robot’s head and
shoulders record video, and its sensors detect the presence of
humans, water leaks and fire.
When the robot encounters something suspicious, it alerts a
computer in the security room and sends video.
Human security guards view the video footage sent by the robot
and determine how to respond.
In addition, a contactless FeliCa card reader embedded in the
robot’s right shoulder means it can be used to check company
IDs and verify the identity of employees at company entranceway's.
And like Guardrobo D1 (its predecessor), Reborg-Q can also be
equipped with a fire extinguisher.
