Remote-controlled robot for mobile phone security

Tmsuk Co., Ltd. ARAKOMU the security company and 22 of the robot venture, announced it had jointly developed a remote-controlled robot that can be secured in the new phone and did a press conference.

Tmsuk and ARAKOMU, March 18 fiscal year by the Ministry of Economy “business support service robot market creation,” which was adopted in the “robot development project site to check conditions for moving fast autonomous security operations,” the opportunity to do a joint development of the robot have. The new robot “T-34” is the prototype. 520 × 600mm (width × height) and weighs 12kg. Maximum speed is the speed of about 10km. Camera and a sensor, are equipped with security devices NETTORANCHA network to catch the intruder. SUKIPPUBAKKU have a record, the image sensors from a total of 10 seconds to 20 seconds can be recorded. The battery is a robot that uses a combination of nickel-hydrogen batteries and nicad.

“NETTORANCHA” security equipment is being sold as a product of Corporation. Gas will immediately set out for suspicious people in the net momentum. From a distance without touching the person suspected, and they will not use it also refers to the training. Net, that the struggle to become entangled as a suspicious MOGAKE. The price is about 2 million yen strength, and that 17,000 primary schools have more than delivered. Four years after purchase to remain. The robot is equipped with just a portion of the cartridge.T-34 is to be introduced with a single robot system without the infrastructure of the facilities, they can be controlled remotely by a mobile phone. The built-in security robots, will also be an automated response based on information from the robot’s sensors automatically. Mr. Takamoto Youiti Tmsuk president of the company in the “T-63 Artemis” Given that it has developed a robot enforcement purposes and as sophisticated and expensive, “a robot from a luxury car make, inexpensive it is more effective on each floor BARAMAITA a robot. ”

Mr. Hasegawa Kazuhiko ARAKOMU of Executive Managing Director of the “new thought and could be linked to the security guards and robots.” ARAKOMU the security company founded in 1971. 56 billion yen in sales, the industry’s 1,000 yen security companies to be positioned as mid-sized.

Building security in the report from the abnormal signals that are the first to rush a security guard, in many cases it will take time. For the unexpected happens, sometimes wrapped in smoke and flames of fire at the guards. But if the robot is near you, and environmental data to know the situation and move immediately to the scene, may take the first response. You can go to the scene soon after a security guard, depending on the situation on the ground. The robot that can be connected to improve the safety of guards.

Tmsuk on the answering machine for home robots, “robot” to development, and sales. The prototype of the “robot” that will be positioned for more of the top models. As a practical matter, 0.8 in action while watching the video from your mobile phone about a time lag of a second, aimed at stopping the right position is extremely difficult. With the large turning radius, that have large operations in places such as illegal dumping sites and the security of the outdoor events. Weapons research and development in the future, other than improved battery, and that changing the exterior design and application of NETTORANCHA located.

The 50 products to about 10,000 yen, to commercialize the end of the year if possible. Takamoto said, “not only a demonstration event and robots, we will put out a thorough search business.”

Asimo will read your mind

Honda is developing the future of robots revolution that will make them closer to us, the more skillful to communicate with us. Researchers have developed an interface that allows the individual to control simply Asimo just by thinking. The system, developed by Honda and ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories, uses an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Magnetic Resonance Imaging) to measure brain signals of the individual, then send them to Asimo that treats.

For example, the researcher pointed a finger of honor Asimo, then drew a V in space with his finger. Seconds later, Asimo has imitated. This system, widely discussed in Asimov’s work for other reasons (second foundation) could shortly becoming more complex, and thus enable the robot to analyze the lesser impact brain and why not send a discussion spaced between two parties for hundreds of miles of one

We are facing a major innovation in domestic robotics!
