‘RoboCop’ surveillance guards high value goods

02 December 2014

Third party logistics provider ID Logistics is using the e-vigilante surveillance robot from EOS Innovation to enhance the security of its facilities, which often store high-value items.

The e-vigilante mobile surveillance robot is designed to deliver enhanced security, faster reactions and mobility.

The mobile, autonomous and multi-function robot moves at speeds between 5 and 10 km/h, follows pre-programmed rounds and identifies anomalies, break-ins and movements.

When it detects an incident, e-vigilante alerts an off-site security operator, sending real-time video feed and incident information which displays on the site map. The security operator can then take control of e-vigilante remotely to assess the situation, categorise the level of alert and take any necessary measures, all the time staying out of physical danger.

EOS Innovation’s first security robot has been rolled out at an ID Logistics platform in the French region of Orléans, where it is being operated for a client in the cosmetics industry. The robots complement the work of security guards at the 25,000 sq m facility, which stores high value goods.

Eric Hémar, chairman and CEO of ID Logistics said: "I’m delighted to be announcing this partnership with EOS Innovation. Thanks to EOS Innovation’s acclaimed expertise in robotics, ID Logistics is able to offer optimum and innovative security arrangements at its logistics platforms to meet the needs of our prestigious customers.”

David Lemaitre, chairman and founder of EOS Innovation added: "The e-vigilante roll-out at ID Logistics demonstrates the trust and interest shown by this major logistics group in a solution that enhances the security of its sites, for the benefit of clients.”
