NXT Robotics is a leader in the automated security sector

NXT Robotics Corp. (“NXT Robotics”) is a leader in the automated security sector focused on connecting our proprietary software platforms to a variety of robotic devices. NXT Robotics mobile observation systems can plug into your existing security services (guards, static cameras, etc.) to successfully combine onsite, remote, and robotic surveillance.

 

NXT Robotics’ first go-to market product, our mobile surveillance unit, is designed for a variety of outdoor environments. This autonomous robotic device is rugged enough to remain active in extreme weather like pouring rain, freezing cold, and blaring heat. The robot can navigate the complexities of changing ground cover, unexpected obstacles, and other moving objects (cars, people, animals).

Reliable and cost-effective, our mobile unit features:

  • Responsive four-camera system
  • Recording and broadcasting capabilities
  • Two- way interactive audio system
  • Heat detection camera to detect people, vehicles, and equipment (optional)
  • Safety lights for visibility and safety presence
  • License Plate Recognition with white/black listing
  • People and posture detection

We designed our Observe & Alert system to proactively detect and prioritize security and safety issues in your office, parking garage, job site, campus, or community. The mobile unit will detect, record, and broadcast threats directly to you or your existing security service.

Reliable, unbiased, and largely undetected, the Observe & Alert mobile unit provides you with an ongoing review of your property at a fraction of the cost. More importantly, the mobile unit gives you an early warning detection to avoid catastrophic issues like theft, fire, and destruction of property.

Video, image capture, and data readouts will also give you the necessary ongoing intelligence to analyze your organization’s safety and security posture unavailable through traditional static security devices like stationary cameras and fixed motion detectors.

Beyond Security and Safety
Mitigate the risk to your business, property, and work sites through the NXT Robotics Robotogo Engine and Platform. Robotogo is the “brain” of our system and can integrate with off-the-shelf robots. Once these pre-existing robots are paired with Robotogo Engine and Platform, you will be maximizing the physical possibilities of the robot with the intelligent analysis only available with our software platform.

NXT Employing AI Technology to Manage Autonomous Security Activities

Includes Navigation, Surveillance, Situational Awareness, Threat Detection/Tracking

 

Navigation

Navigation is a core capability of our security robots. Without navigation, the machine can’t provide responsive monitoring. Your robot will be able to navigate through complex environments with shifting terrain. Parking lots, store interiors, and office spaces are generally square in nature. The NXT robots easily navigate through these traditional locations. Construction sites and outdoor parks, however, require a higher level of navigation skill. NXT robots have that skill. Your robot will be able to easily navigate over sand, grass, dirt, and gravel.

In a retail store or product warehouse, newly delivered goods arriving as old merchandise is cleared. On a construction site, a cleared space today is a pile of 2x4s tomorrow. The NXT robot will be able to adjust to its environment daily, maintaining surveillance regardless of new and unexpected obstacles. Nearly no environment is static; a vehicle can suddenly block an entrance, or a vandal can disrupt a palette of goods. What good is robot surveillance without the ability to navigate through unexpected obstacles? Our AI platform gives the robot the ability to adapt its pathways, ensuring uninterrupted review and feedback about your business environment.

Surveillance

Mounted cameras and motion detection have limitations. CCTV is a great resource, but often only in helping to broadly define what happened in the middle of the night. NXT robots provide on-going surveillance from an endless stream of viewpoints. With autonomous, free moving NXT robots, you have nearly no blind spots inside your business. Blurry, distant images become clear, up-close images valuable in detecting criminals. Once alerted of problems, human controllers can move the NXT robot into the right place to determine the exact nature of problems or concerns. Moreover, controllers can broadcast messages, communicate with anyone on site, and send security or police for immediate action. NXT robots don’t just provide a simple view inside your business, but provide a method to interrupt and deter criminal activity.

Situational Awareness

As human beings, we have an innate ability to sense when something is wrong — when a car is in the wrong place, when silence is broken by shattering glass, when a dark room goes light at 2 am. NXT robots are able to maintain an awareness of the status-quo, and they can fast-track unusual circumstances for immediate attention.

Situational awareness reduces the frequency of costly false alarms. For example, if you have a manned patrol car pass through your construction site twice per night, your NXT robot will be able to distinguish that car from an intruder’s vehicle. The faint sound of a barking dog will not register as an unusual sound from inside your business. NXT robots can distinguish with 99.9% accuracy the likelihood of an unusual activity that’s pertinent to your security needs.

Threat Detection

A squatter can invade your parking garage, a vandal can deface your construction zone, and a thief can break into your store. A simple B&E (break-and-enter) can quickly escalate into theft, fire, or act of violence against an employee. NXT robots help detect threats early to prevent them from becoming costly, regrettable liabilities. Your NXT robot has the eyes and ears to process environmental activity and determine the likelihood of impending problems. Keep in mind, intruders can avoid traditional surveillance by lurking in the dark corners of your business. With NXT robot, there are no dark corners; potential threats can be tracked, lit, and photographed.

NXT Robotics names cyber and technology expert Darin Andersen as CEO

“Security robotics is a technology whose impact will soon be virtually unlimited”

SAN DIEGO, CA–(Marketwired – July 27, 2017) – NXT Robotics Corporation, a San Diego-based security company that combines physical security, cybersecurity, and autonomous vehicles into a single rugged, intelligent self-driving security platform to address multi-factor threats in today’s world, has named entrepreneur and cybersecurity expert Darin Andersen as Chief Executive Officer.

As CEO, Andersen oversees all aspects of NXT Robotics’ product testing, development and operations, along with sales and marketing.

“Throughout the tech world, Darin has become widely known as the ‘Cyber Guy’ who helped establish the San Diego region as a major hub and cluster of cybersecurity,” said Jeff Debrosse, Founder/Chief Technology Officer of NXT Robotics. “He brings us real-life experience not only as a startup entrepreneur, but as a far-sighted tech visionary.”

Andersen is a distinguished professional in the Internet of Things (IoT) and cybersecurity with over 20 years of experience in emerging technology and security industries. He is Chairman/Founder of CyberTECH, a San Diego-based network of tech-inspired startups and established firms, business and financial leaders, academic and research institutions, government and non-profit organizations.

Andersen also founded CyberCalifornia, the Smart & Safe Cities Institute and serves as Co-chair of the Economic Development Subcommittee of the California Cybersecurity Task Force. In previous roles, Andersen served as Chief Operating Officer of ESET, the San Diego-based security firm that he helped establish as a globally recognized brand. He was also president of Norman Shark, a global provider of malware analysis solutions that later was acquired by Blue Coat Systems (now Symantec).

“As a new part of what’s being called physio-cybersecurity, our platform takes the realm of intelligent, proactive threat prevention to the next level,” said Andersen. “Our intelligent platforms are poised to change the way we get work done, led by a powerful set of capabilities that promise to transform today’s modern workforce. In our view, security robotics is a technology whose impact will soon be virtually unlimited.”

NXT Robotics is currently in stealth mode, developing two distinctly different Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) — “Scorpion” for outdoor and “IRIS” for indoor — which have proven to be an increasingly popular choice for security-conscious companies seeking maximum protection while lowering costs and ensuring consistent and high-quality protection.

Scorpion is a rugged all-terrain and all-weather robot that provides round-the-clock physical security monitoring and reporting. Shaped like its namesake insect and measuring 36″ in height, 24″ width and 60″ length, the 350-pound, six-wheeled mobile unit features a built-in bullhorn that can address intruders. A remote operator can also speak through the annunciator and listen via the on-board microphone.

IRIS is a mobile, single-stem, large-eyed indoor security robot with a striking resemblance to the character “ET” and is about four feet tall. Its uses are multiple: malls and technology and university campuses, commercial real estate, indoor parking structures, and venue security. Indoor security robots represent a class of collaborative robots (co-bots) that operate in tight and open spaces alongside people. Thus, robots are no longer restricted to “safety zones” — but are instead integrated into the organization’s daily workflow.

Product testing and feasibility studies of both applications are now underway, with commercial release expected by Q4 2017.
