The University of Lincoln is developing security patrol robots that could assist human security guards. The security patrol robots could survey offices and other buildings looking for any items or people that are out of place. The robot would be programmed to call a human security guard to check out the intruder or suspicious items.
Scientists need to develop the software that enables the robot to learn about the patrol environment. The robot needs to know what people do in each room and when people are in the rooms.
The security guard robots aren’t being designed to replace human security guards, but as assistants to humans.
