ISC West sees humanoid robots for commercial premises security

March 23, 2022
Halodi Robotics contends its rollout of 140 service robots to ADT Commercial "represents industry’s single biggest contract for humanoid robots to provide security on commercial premises."

Halodi Robotics has signed an agreement to provide 140 humanoid robots to ADT Commercial, a premier U.S.-based provider of commercial security, fire, life safety and risk consulting services.

The two companies are demonstrating their joint humanoid robots solution at the ISC West trade show in Las Vegas from March 22-25.

The supply announcement is the result of a strategic partnership announced in April 2021, where Halodi Robotics secured an investment from ADT Commercial to develop a robot to complement the company's physical security solutions offering.

With multiple customer pilot programs already in progress to test and improve robot capabilities, ADT Commercial said it 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."

The company's humanoid robot platform performs pre-programmed services using artificial intelligence (AI).

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 (VR) headset to respond through the robot’s eyes, ears, and body to open doors, provide access control, and pick up objects or even people, both safely and efficiently.

"To our knowledge, this is the single biggest contract ever for humanoid robots,” contends Bernt Øivind Børnich, founder and CEO of Halodi Robotics, who adds, “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.”

Attendees can see the robot in action in the ADT Commercial booth at the ISC West trade show in Las Vegas.
