Sharp Electronics Corporation is pleased to announce that the Sharp INTELLOS Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle (A-UGV) has been nominated in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards competition.
The Sharp INTELLOS™ A-UGV is a multi-terrain, mobile sensor, intelligence-gathering robot that can capture video, audio and environmental data while providing a visible deterrent–proactively and without the aid of a human driver.

This breakthrough, autonomous robotic system can enhance outdoor surveillance, security, safety and maintenance inspections.
It utilizes a navigation surveillance platform to patrol predefined routes, extending the property coverage and impact of a traditional security force.
Included are standard information gathering tools, plus optional observation and sensor equipment configurable to meet a customer’s changing safety needs.

Robots are well-suited to take on the “3Ds” or “Dirty, Dull and Dangerous” tasks of many jobs.
When it comes to security guards, this robot for security can help liberate the manpower guard force of these “3D” duties and focus their attention on ever-increasing demands to protect people, infrastructure and assets.
The Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV will bridge the gaps that exist in outdoor surveillance, security, safety and maintenance inspection patrols without the requirement of hiring additional personnel or exposing them to undue risks.
Furthermore, it provides a compelling advancement over traditional security technologies and operations through its proactive approach and not strictly reactive response using continuous data streams.

Five Key Differentiators of Sharp’s Outdoor Security Robot:
- Full life cycle of reliability, availability and serviceability given the 3-year parts and labor warranty, coupled with sales and service support across the entire United States.
- Tested to MIL-STD 810 (Dept of Defense) environmental standards for ruggedized, continuous operation under wide temperature ranges, varied terrain, and adverse weather, such as rain, snow, fog, etc.
- Certified to ISO 13482 Standard (International Organization of Standardization – nonprofit) for safe robotic operation around people.
- Real-time streaming data, passed between onboard video, audio and environmental sensors to the CCAP (Command & Control Software) is safely and securely transmitted and encrypted using a military-grade mesh network for protection against hacking.
- Hot swap, rechargeable and user-replaceable lithium batteries offer quiet (stealth) operation and with no downtime.

Features that complement and enhance your security infrastructure.
- A visible deterrent on predetermined routes can potentially stop trouble before it occurs.
- Secure, real-time data transmission across a wireless mesh network (with backup public cellular, if available) keeps your onsite command center on top of vehicle position and telemetry as well as video, audio and sensor information.
- Integrated camera system comprehensively captures the guard tour with multiple video technologies.
- Adjustable-height boom stretches to approximately 5’9″, enabling the A-UGV to see into and over objects such as walls and fences.
- Two-way audio communication, standard cameras and available sensors allow security personnel to communicate through the A-UGV without placing themselves in harm’s way.
- Electric drive system powered by two user-replaceable, rechargeable lithium ION battery packs, could provide between four to twelve hours per charge, enabling coverage for 3 full shifts each day.
- Optional sensors help reduce exposure from hazardous conditions. An array of sensors are available to match the monitoring needs of multiple outdoor site applications.
- Multi-terrain front tires provide traction; omnidirectional rear tires feature a revolutionary new design that allows for lateral movement to minimize tire friction and power usage.

Assist in providing a more secure facility, while prioritizing employees’ safety.
This automated robotic guarding system can extend the frequency and coverage of your property’s assets, help to reduce field personnel requirements and mitigate security risks.
- On average, the two batteries’ charge could enable coverage for three full shifts per day, with each charge lasting between four to twelve hours of patrol.
- A standardized comprehensive camera system, including optional thermal imaging.
- This extends the capabilities of the human eye and provides an increased spectrum of visual data to enable real-time decisions by security personnel.
- Audio capabilities, including a siren, voice announcements and two-way communication, enable guards to interact without placing themselves in harm’s way.
- The lighting system includes two LED high-beams and two, forward-facing LED low-beams, enabling broad lighting of fence lines and other objects of interest, while also improving visual image capture in poor ambient light conditions.
- A rear-mounted mast can provide 360° illumination and LED flashing lights as a warning of its presence.
- Available optional sensors can detect outdoor environmental hazards, such as toxic gases, combustibles and oxygen levels, and collect reporting data for compliance, verification and audit, while security personnel remain safely in your command center.
- Multi-tiered safety features, including light detection and ranging (LIDAR), reduce the risk of collision during unattended patrol.
- These and features, such as local and remote manual shut-off controls, meet Comprehensive Circle of Quality and Safety System (CCQSS) and the internationally accepted safety standard of ISO 13482 (International Organization of Standardization) for safe operation around people.
