SAN MATEO, Calif. – Cobalt Robotics, a manufacturer of security robots used to autonomously patrol indoor facilities, will introduce a new door integration that enables its security robots to open and then pass through a secured door without human intervention.
The firm says it is a first for the industry.
Cobalt Robotics’ says its new door integration feature enables its robots to seamlessly pass through areas closed off by a door. Using a secured, wireless credential, the robot transmits a signal using either Bluetooth or RFID technology to use the door’s access control reader, telling it to open.
The new feature will be unveiled at ISC West 2019 in booth #7134.
“This enhanced capability is a game changer in the security robot industry, as it enables robots to enter partitioned areas in a corporate office or manufacturing facility that would otherwise be difficult for the robot to access independently,” said Travis Deyle, CEO of Cobalt Robotics, in a prepared statement.
