Seqsense has developed an autonomous security robot service that harnesses AWS for connectivity, remote operation and fleet monitoring capabilities. 

The service is designed to meet rising labor shortages in Japan, as the country’s rapidly aging population is causing the number of workers to dwindle. The security robot, SQ-2, takes on patrolling duties for companies, autonomously navigating a space using pre-created floor maps and capable of riding elevators to patrol multiple floors in a building. 

To date, SQ-2 has been deployed in more than 30 office buildings, shopping centers and airports in Japan. 

The robot’s autonomous navigation system uses an array of 3D lidar sensors as well as a 360-degree camera which allows it to navigate even in narrow or crowded spaces. It also has several microphones and speakers, allowing operators to remotely monitor its progress, and step in if necessary.

The robot uses a 4G network to remain connected, sending real-time video and information to the cloud, though it can also operate autonomously even when disconnected. Operators are also able to monitor the status and position of the robot at all times.
