ALSOK is a Japanese electronics/security company that recently released An-9RR, a robotic pair built for security and receptionist tasks.
“Equipped with a camera and several sensors, the main unit (weight: 35kg) is able to recognize a visitor’s face or voice, take reservations, greet people and say goodbye. It also keeps records of people coming into the buildings it guards.”
These seem rather advanced for how cute they look. Though not very intimidating as security robots. Visitors can use the “parent” robot’s touchscreen interface to contact people or learn information about the building in which it’s located. The “kid” robot is smaller and can only be used for security purposes. These things might be cool but they won’t be scaring away any would-be intruders. The folks at ALSOK should talk to Boston Dynamics to see if they can get these security bots mounted on a could BigDogs. Yes, then my army would be marvelou—I mean…
AW CUTE!
