Startup Turing Video Segway-Based Security Robot Profile

By: Brian Karas, Published on Sep 13, 2017

If security robots can not replace guards, perhaps the next best thing is a robot the guard can actually ride. 

Turing Video has raised $5 million, and is bringing to market a robot security guard that can not only detect security violations, using deep neural network analytics, but can also shuttle a guard around at 11mph.

IPVM spoke with company executives about this new offering, reviewing the details inside.

If a client was going to use a Segway anyways, this seems somewhat attractive. I'd be very concerned about robot vandalism and theft if the robot is allowed to patrol solo in an unsecured environment.

The robot and drone look very useful if they could automatically respond to intrusion activations on a large campus.   

I'm thinking the results of this survey indicate Knightscope needs to start thinking about their approach. Better analytics, dual purpose, lower price, and lower risk represent a serious threat to Knightscope's market if they can get this thing going.

The company is working on a web interface, as well as integrations to Milestone and other VMSes.

Is Milestone considering adding custom robotic controls, or would the robot be controlled thru a standard ptz interface?

Hoverboards are meant for kids. Segways have a handlebar for a reason. Just saying...

They are selling an illusion. Better background music and visuals than Knightscope.  

I see this is just the start of robots taking over the guard industry. Eventually cyber and physical would be unified into one solution.

Looks like the Turing Robot got a face lift -
