Robotic Aerial Security - Growth Trends & Best Practices

Robotic Aerial Security - Growth Trends & Best Practices

November 14, 2018, 10:15 AM - 11:00 AM

Theater 2 - USE

Physical Security is the industry that has ushered in the first wave of fully autonomous and commercially available robotic systems in the world — well before self-driving cars and drone deliveries. The early adopters of robotic aerial security systems are commercial and industrial facilities with elevated security needs: auto manufacturers, chemical manufacturing plants, data centers, mining operations, and many more. The lion’s share of growth in this sector will come from autonomous systems, and changing FAA regulations will soon allow companies to monitor and secure remote facilities with no human guards present. We will see a greater push for security drones to become autonomous systems in the near term, as they provide a myriad of benefits. While some use cases for drones are well suited for “manual” flights such inspections and surveying, physical security requires on-site 24/7 readiness even in inclement weather conditions such as rain and snow. In order to perform autonomous missions in a large range of facilities and environmental conditions, robotic aerial security systems include a weather-proof drone and base station from which the drone takes off from, lands on, and charges on in addition to the software which gives the robotic system its intelligence. The first part of this session will explore these different factors that are driving growth and shaping the future of drones performing physical security mission. The second part of the session will then delve into differentiating between different offerings of products and services, as well as best practices for deploying Robotic Aerial Security and how to ensure effective and reliable operations.
