More robotic capabilities and cost-effective technology make 2022 the right time for humanoid robot security guards.
Three of ADT Commercial’s customers will be testing Gemini, the current Halodi robot prototype, in 2022; with two robots per site, they’ll have the opportunity to identify the benefits of the robots and make suggestions for further development.
“We made the conscious choice to shape the robot like a human rather than R2D2 because humanoid robots let us access the world as humans do. Shaping a robot like a human lets the robot interact in the human environment,” which includes traveling in elevators, reaching shelves, and opening doors, explains Nadeau.
Because robots don’t take home paychecks or require health insurance, robots like Gemini can significantly reduce security cost while increasing security capability.
