NXT Robotics Corp. recently launched “Maverick,” its Generation 5 autonomous vehicle and cognitive software platform.
The baseline model of Maverick is equipped with four high resolution PTX security cameras that can be used to conduct artificial intelligence (AI) based analysis of a physical environment, along with license plate detection and facial and object recognition.
Maverick can also open a two-way audio stream, allowing the robot to communicate with people it encounters along its patrol routes, which are largely autonomous. The audio system can also stream pre-recorded messages and noises in response to particular situations it encounters.
Maverick uses NXT Robotics’ cognitive-AI platform, which facilitates rapid customization of Maverick’s baseline model, allowing customers to rapidly add new features and functions to robot’s original mission set.
“Maverick is an example of an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) with a mission to provide advanced physical outdoor security patrol in places like Data Centers, Construction Sites, Parking Complexes and Detention Facilities,” says Darin Andersen, CEO and cofounder at NXT Robotics Corp.
“UGVs are becoming an increasingly popular choice for companies that want to scale manual operations using automation technologies as means to lower costs while enhancing the quality of operations.”
According to NXT Robotics, the launch of Maverick supports a partnership between NXT Robotics and Ricoh USA Inc., a Japanese multinational imaging and electronics company that has a large robotics service deployment and service division.
“We’re committed to helping companies like NXT address their customers’ needs, by providing the highest level of service on their robots and helping ensure that their customers realize maximum uptime for their technology investment,” says Dale Walsh, director of Innovation for Ricoh Service Advantage.
NXT Robotics Corp., one of the leading software solution company, recently launched Maverick, a 5th generation autonomous vehicle, and cognitive software platform. Maverick uses the NXT Robotics’ cognitive –AI platform and can undergo a lot of customizations to cater to a range of functions that customers might want.
Maverick is an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV). The primary purposes that it looks to serve include advanced outdoor physical activities related to security. It can function as a patrol vehicle at places like data centers, parking lots, construction sites, and detention facilities. It includes high-resolution security cameras which aid in the AI-based analysis that it is supposed to carry out. With the available features, it can detect and scrutinize license plates, facial expressions, and objects. It also can conduct audio based conversations with people and stream noises in response to particular situations, some of which, are pre-recorded.
UGVs are finding an increased number of applications and takers as many sectors look towards robotics to optimize tasks as well as to automate processes to reduce burdens. Robots have many advantages over their human counterparts in certain situations, which are ensuring their acceptance. The ability to carry out monitoring and detections with high precision makes the product particularly valuable from a security point of view. The lowering of costs is an added advantage.
The company NXT Robotics Corp. is located in San Diego and provides robotic security solutions. The service robots they manufacture help to support the security infrastructure and alert systems. Its products and services are of high performance and ensure a cost-effective solution for indoor as well as outdoor applications, and are available on a subscription basis as well as for purchase. The platform is secure by design and protects against both physical and cyber risks.
