The next time you visit the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS), you may encounter more than a NASCAR race.
That’s because the Sharp INTELLOS Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle (A-UGV) has been named the “Official Security Robot of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.” Sharp says the INTELLOS will provide an added layer of safety and security protection for what is known as the “highest capacity sports venue in the world.”
“Technological innovation is in our DNA”, says IMS President, J. Douglas Boles. “Dating back to the very first Indy 500 where the rear-view mirror was pioneered, IMS values, invests, and nurtures high-tech advancements in all aspects of our operations. Evolving our security force to include automated, robotic integration enables us to better safeguard patrons, drivers, and staff.”
The Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV is a cost-effective, multiterrain, mobile sensor platform that can capture video, audio and environmental data, while providing a visible deterrent, according to the company. The data it provides can enhance outdoor surveillance, security, safety and maintenance inspections, which will help organizations meet the challenges of an ever-changing security landscape by augmenting a skilled guard force.
