Stealth Technologies and Honeywell to commercialise security robot

Technology development company Stealth Technologies has signed an agreement with industrial software company Honeywell to commercialise its Autonomous Security Vehicle (ASV) for the facility perimeter security market.

The robotic system (pictured), which Stealth developed in association with Honeywell and the Western Australian Department of Justice, will be further developed for sale to customers in the correctional, telecommunications and defence fields in Australia and New Zealand.

Other markets will be targeted as agreed by the parties.

The ASV is a fully autonomous system that can track objects and relay video back to base, and is capable of testing microwave, photo electric and electro magnetic security sensors as it is on patrol.

Fully integrated into Honeywell’s Enterprise Buildings Integrator product, the system operates for up to eight hours on lithium ion batteries and is capable of advanced computer vision including facial and number plate recognition.

Stealth, which is owned by technology investment group Strategic Elements, will conduct an ASV pilot deployment programme with potential customers to utilise the vehicle in their organisations and ‘obtain hands-on insights into the perimeter security benefits of robotic automation and autonomous vehicles’.

Until now the system has been tested through interactions with security personnel at a Western Australian correctional facility, a mundane and labour-intensive task.

Under the agreement Honeywell will be responsible for identifying customer relationships.
