SentryBot II

An Autonomous, Co-Operative Multi-Robot System for Security and Surveillance

Based on an autonomous security robot developed at the DFKI, a cooperating robot system will be built. The prototype of the existing SentryBot is equipped with motion detectors based on radar and infrared, as well as with a camera. Currently, four such robots equipped with recharging units are being constructed for the surveillance of the Bremen Robotics Lab. Based on experience gained with our SentryBot study, a larger model (ASGUARD II) has been developed which may be used outdoors and in areas which are more difficult to get to (i.e. staircases) and which features an infrared camera as well as a zoom camera.

SentryBot: Indoor patrol

SentryBot Indoor is a mobile security robot which is able to patrol autonomously in indoor environments

ASGUARD v2: Outdoor test drive

ASGUARD II runs over a variety of obstacles and climb stairs. The The ASGUARD II (Advanced Security Guard) robot is a highly mobile platform that can move fast on flat terrain, overcome obstacles and climb stairs. This robot is actuated by four wheels and has a body with a passive degree of freedom. The obstacles in this video are part of the robot test track that was built at the DFKI building in Bremen.
