Title: Past, Present, and Future of Robots & Drones for Physical Security


Security programs are being stretched beyond their limits with the economic downturn and cost-cutting, rising wages, the Great Resignation, and unbilled overtime.  The only practical solution to maintain or enhance security programs is through technology and automation. Camera systems are a historical mainstay and are getting better by the day, but they have fundamental limitations. Mobile robots are a relatively new tool—whether indoor, outdoor, or aerial—that are evolving rapidly to provide better coverage and super-human capabilities. In this talk, we'll look at the past, present, and future of mobile robots for safety and security applications. We'll talk about the technology and operational considerations driving today's adoption, use cases and deployment models, and near-term technology inflections such as manipulation (e.g., used to address doors and elevators) and robust outdoor campus-area networks (e.g., 5G and satellite internet connectivity) that will further accelerate their adoption. Finally, we will take a look at automation in other areas of shared services (janitorial, hospitality, retail, landscaping, and more) to learn how security-adjacent services are also benefiting from the very same trends.

Learning Objective #1: Understand the historical context of robots for physical security.

Learning Objective #2: Obtain a high-level overview of the myriad solutions available to practitioners today, along with some basic guidelines and deployment models that can guide successful adoption.

Learning Objective #3: Develop a basic understanding of the technology drivers that will further accelerate robotic deployment in your spaces—both within security and adjacent shared services.

Type: All Access Education
