Your Rotund Guard Can Be Replaced by Rotundus, the 3-D RoboEye

Security Director Alert - Imagine replacing multiple guards, at multiple sites with GroundBots... all reporting to your command center. 

Think of the money you could then devote to more worthwhile security needs - intellectual property protection needs - like, ummmm... TSCM!

You don’t need to read instructions to operate an arcade driving game. It’s intuitive. And that’s how easy it is to steer GroundBot in the manual control mode.

But there’s one big difference: when you’re driving GroundBot the landscape you’re moving through is for real. Streamed in real-time, in 2D or 3D. Operators say that it makes you feel you are actually there, sitting in GroundBot, looking out. 

Guardbot is also amphibious and efficient and can run up to 10 km/h (6 mph) - without making a sound. Moreover, it can operate for 8-16 hours depending on mission profile.

This near-reality experience also makes operators more alert to anyone or anything that shouldn’t be there. GroundBot can even be used to find out where an unauthorized person is going. (more) (video) (c.1968 prototype)
