RoboGuard is a revolutionary agile scout, running along secured fences, ensuring perimeter integrity and capable of responding promptly to intrusion alerts. It consists of an autonomous platform, traveling on a monorail and carrying several sensors.

The robot has two modes of operation:

  • Routine patrol, in which it travels autonomously at about 5 kilometers per hour, scanningand searching for perimeter anomalies such as fence holes or nearby suspected objects
  • Response mode, in which the robot rushes promptly to home on a suspected intrusion,acting as a first responder

A typical RoboGuard configuration includes:

  • Laser scanner, that acts as a short range 3D LIDAR (Light Radar) for perimeter inspection
  • Fixed camera with IR illuminator for short range perimeter surveillance and threats verification
  • PTZ camera with IR illuminator for medium range
  • Two-way intercom between the control room and a potential intruder


How It Works

The platform, powered by a rechargeable battery, is traveling along a monorail, which isattached to the fence structure; several optional preset gear combinations are supported inorder to provide the optimum speed / slope performance

Wi-Fi communication ensures constant link between the robot and the control room; this canbe achieved through either:

  • RF antennas at the docking stations or any other locations covering the rail
  • Or by a leaky feeder cable laid along the rails.

The sophisticated laser scanner uses a rotating laser beam perpendicular to the fence,covering the lower hemisphere (2700); it scans up to 20 meters of each side of the perimeter,capable to detect holes in the fence or new objects, somehow left close to the fence

The intercom onboard the robot enables conversation between the control room and a personstanding a few meters away from the robot

Site Layout

Each robot typically covers 500 - 1,000 meters, mostly pending the required response time

A docking station is located at every 1,000 - 2,000 meters, serving the two adjacent robotswith battery replacement and with Wi-Fi communication

Each docking station is powered by 230/110 VAC. The average time between batteryreplacement stops is 3 hours.

Markets & Benefits

RoboGuard is the perfect choice for sensitive unattended critical sites, where the site is remotely monitored yet first-response is highly recommended.

As an affordable “unmanned first response vehicle” RoboGuard is useful as a complementary solution for almost any perimeter application, such as airports, seaports, prisons, military and other sensitive sites;

  • It can offload the burden of routine regular inspection of the perimeter
  • It can offload the burden required to nullify areas where frequent nuisance alerts such ascreated by legitimate nearby people
  • And most importantly - save manpower by take parts of the tasks typoically done by firstresponders
