New pieces of security gear continue to arrive on the scene – security robots. Briefs noted the arrival of security robots (along with drones and virtual reality) in a post last February, and they keep coming on.
The Security Magazine blog has the International Federation of Robots (IFR) projecting that “the number/use of industrial robots will grow by 15 percent through 2018.”
“Some of the robots.” Security adds, “are likely to be patrolling industrial facilities, parking lots, warehouses and other large unoccupied facilities. Perhaps shopping malls after hours will be one of the many facilities patrolled by robots.” You just have to keep them on your side.
