Halodi Robotics has signed an agreement to provide 140 humanoid robots to ADT Commercial, a US-based provider of commercial security, fire, life safety and risk consulting services. This is believed to be the largest deal of its kind involving humanoid robots.
The two companies will demonstrate their joint solution at the ISC West trade show in the Las Vegas Convention Center, stand 20019, from March 22-25.
The agreement is the result of the strategic partnership announced in April 2021 where Halodi Robotics secured an investment from ADT Commercial to develop a robot to complement their physical security solutions.
With multiple customer pilot programs already in progress to test and improve robot capabilities, ADT Commercial will begin making the robot available to enterprise customers in late 2022.
Halodi Robotics believes that robots make workplaces better by performing tasks that are dirty, dangerous, and dull so that employees can prioritize functions where they create greater value.
Halodi Robotics’ humanoid robot platform performs pre-programmed services using artificial intelligence. By observing and reporting on potential problems, and streamlining and standardizing tasks, the robot is able to support and expand the capabilities of a human team that may be stretched thin.
Service robots designed and built by Halodi Robotics are programmed well beyond the patrol functions of a basic security robot.
If a robot on patrol identifies an anomaly, a security operator can don a virtual reality headset to respond through the robot’s eyes, ears, and body to open doors, provide access control, and pick up objects or even people – safely and efficiently.
Bernt Øivind Børnich, founder and CEO of Halodi Robotics, says: “To our knowledge, this is the single biggest contract ever for humanoid robots.
“ADT Commercial has been an extremely collaborative partner throughout the development process. We are proud to partner with ADT Commercial and look forward to continuing driving innovation within the physical security market.”
