The Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV is a cost-effective, multi-terrain, mobile sensor platform that can capture video, audio and environmental data

(A-UGV), introduced by Sharp Electronics Corporation at the ASIS International 2016 security exhibition in Orlando, Florida. The Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV is a cost-effective, multi-terrain, mobile sensor platform that can capture video, audio, and environmental data while providing a visible deterrent. The data provided by the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV can enhance outdoor surveillance, security, safety and maintenance inspections, which helps an organization meet the challenges of an ever-changing security landscape by augmenting a skilled guard force.

The Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV has the capability to operate as a self-directed robot, which navigates on the ground, outdoors around a facility, without a human driver. After its route is programmed, it is capable of operating autonomously and can be equipped to extend human capabilities, such as sight, using an array of cameras, including available thermal imaging. Operators within a command center also have the option to take control of the vehicle, when necessary, and direct its operation. The unit is powered by rechargeable ION batteries, and can operate up to eight hours on a single charge. A siren, flashing lights, voice announcements and two-way communications help to deter vandalism and trespassing, while its cameras and other sensors help assist in identifying other dangers, such as pipeline cracks or gas leaks.

A+ Technology & Security Solutions, a leading regional systems integrator with headquarters in Bay Shore, NY and Bridgeport, CT, sees the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV as a logical and exciting addition to its best-of-breed security offerings. The Company’s expertise in technology convergence and integration dovetails perfectly with the role the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV can play as part of a comprehensive physical security solution. A+ already offers and supports a wide range of security and facility management systems, as well as management software and command center solutions that bring it all together into a centralized management platform. 

The ability of INTELLOS to provide an autonomous mobile platform for physical security and environmental sensors, the data from which can be monitored, prioritized and managed by these same centralized command center solutions, means an opportunity for A+ to extend exciting new possibilities to its customers. The Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV is particularly well suited for customers with expansive outdoor properties, such as manufacturing, utilities, pharmaceuticals, data centers, airports, rail yards and government facilities, all categories that A+ serves.

David Antar, President of A+ Technology & Security Solutions, explained, “A+ Technology & Security has always prided itself on being ahead of the curve in recognizing the value of emerging technologies, and there is no question that autonomous unmanned ground vehicles will play an important role in the future security marketplace. We are thrilled to be the first integrator to offer the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV and are looking forward to sharing its possibilities with our customers.”

As an authorized reseller of the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV, A+ will support customers with security assessments, installation, and training.
