Cobalt Robotics, a manufacturer of intelligent security robots used to autonomously patrol indoor facilities, is set to introduce a new door integration that enables robots to open and pass through a secured door without human intervention. The company’s technology is currently used in corporate headquarters, data centers and warehouses to provide additional security patrolling intelligence.

Using a secured, wireless credential, the robot transmits a signal using either Bluetooth or RFID technology to use the door’s access control reader, telling it to open. In addition to this capability, Cobalt’s robots also feature leak and spill detection sensing technology to identify issues in a predefined area and then send a notification.

The robots are equipped with more than 60 sensors, including day-night cameras, thermal sensors, motion sensors and badge readers, which help to detect anomalies and other risks that might not be detected by the human eye.

“This enhanced capability is a game changer in the security robot industry, as it enables robots to enter partitioned areas in a corporate office or manufacturing facility that would otherwise be difficult for the robot to access independently,” said Travis Deyle, CEO of Cobalt Robotics, in a prepared statement.
