DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. — Prosegur Security USA has announced the integration of its newest security technology, a robot dog named Yellow, into its private and professional security offerings for perimeter patrol.
Yellow has several applications. The company explains the robot dog can be deployed in situations that are too dangerous or too difficult for human entry. In addition, the robot can be deployed at events and with the help of facial recognition technology, it can identify “friend or foe,” alerting security of potential threats.
Yellow is powered by Prosegur’s GenzAI platform and AI partner Azena, enabling risk situations to be communicated via 5G technology to any Prosegur security operations center (SOC).
“Prosegur understands the importance of intelligent, integrated security offerings, and Yellow is an innovative approach that connects and communicates with people and technologies to provide a comprehensive security solution,” says Mike Dunn, chief technology officer at Prosegur. “By leveraging our GenzAI platform, state-of-the-art machine learning, communication, smart cameras and video analytics, Yellow can detect security threats, relay information to the SOC and on-site security to quickly respond and neutralize any danger.”

Yellow the robot dog also provides enhanced support and improved efficiency of human patrol operations, elevating safety and security measures of stand-alone manned guarding.

Some of the other services the robot dog provides include perimeter patrols either independently or supervised by a security team member to enable real-time application at either a private business or public event, including concerts and athletic games. Yellow’s machine learning capabilities also enable it to adapt to any terrain, avoid obstacles, and create a comprehensive map of its patrol area.
