U.S. Security Associates Will Host Roadshow to Demo Sharp Intellos Patrol Robot

The Sharp Intellos A-UGV outdoor patrol robot can capture video, audio and environmental data, while providing a visible deterrent without the aid of a human driver.

ROSWELL, Ga. — U.S. Security Associates, the first authorized guard services reseller of the Sharp Intellos Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle (A-UGV), will host a series of demonstration events across the United States to showcase the capabilities of the patrol robot.

In cooperation with Sharp Robotics Business Development (SRBD), a division of Sharp Electronics Corp., U.S. Security Associates will hold exclusive roadshow events at the following locations beginning in July:

  • Atlanta: July 18
  • San Francisco: July 20
  • Houston: July 25
  • Dallas: July 27
  • Los Angeles: Aug. 1
  • San Diego: Aug. 3
  • Indianapolis: Aug. 9
  • Seattle: Aug. 10

The multiterrain, mobile sensor platform is part of U.S. Security’s industry-exclusive P3 Technology Platform SM and is being offered to work in conjunction with the firm’s guarding force to provide an additional layer of security and safety coverage.

Robotics and drones will increasingly play a major role in complementing a traditional officer force, says Richard Wyckoff, president and CEO of U.S. Security Associates.

“In addition to acting as an additional deterrent for criminal activity, the real value new technologies, like the Sharp Intellos A-UGV, offer is mining site-specific data in areas inhospitable or too cumbersome for traditional officer patrols,” he says. “Robotics that enable data-driven technologies should be a key consideration when putting together a comprehensive security and safety program.”

The Sharp Intellos A-UGV outdoor patrol robot can capture video, audio and environmental data, while providing a visible deterrent without the aid of a human driver, according to the company. The Intellos utilizes a navigation surveillance platform to patrol predefined routes, extending the property coverage and impact of a traditional security force.

The A-UGV offers standard information gathering tools, plus optional observation and sensor equipment configurable to meet a customer’s changing safety needs, according to SRBD.

“U.S. Security Associates recognizes the value proposition of combining technology with manpower to maximize comprehensive security and safety for their clients,” says Cliff Quiroga, vice president of SRBD. “This value proposition extends to [the company’s] frontline officers, who can now be liberated by the Sharp Intellos A-UGV of repetitive and at times dangerous tasks to focus on more intelligent-based work. Manpower working side-by-side with autonomous robotic technology helps mitigate risk for all involved.”
