NXT Robotics launches autonomous AI security patrol vehicle and platform

San Diego, US-based NXT Robotics Corp. has announced the launch of its Generation 5 Autonomous Vehicle and Cognitive Software Platform, called ‘Maverick’.

Maverick is an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) for outdoor security patrols in places such as data centres, construction sites, parking complexes and detention facilities.

Maverick’s baseline model includes four high resolution PTX security cameras which can be used to do AI-based analysis of a physical environment along with licence plate detection and facial and object recognition.

It also has the capability to open a two-way audio stream so that the robot can communicate with people it encounters along its largely autonomous patrol routes.

The audio system can also stream pre-recorded messages and noises in response to particular situations it encounters.

It uses the NXT Robotics’ cognitive-AI platform which allows for rapid customisation of the baseline model so customers can add new features and functions to the robot’s original mission set.
