Turing AI Launches Mobile Security Robot


March 3, 2022

Turing AI, which develops artificial intelligence and machine learning models for interconnected solutions, has announced the launch of its mobilized video security platform that combines patrol robots with security cameras. Claiming it as “the world’s most affordable indoor patrolling robot,” Turing said the new Turing Robot comes equipped with time-of-flight lidar with a range of up to 40 meters, high-definition IP cameras, a wide-view laser scanner and optional environmental or gas detection scanners.

The robot can be operated remotely through mobile apps, and can be monitored from anywhere in the world through Turing’s centralized monitoring system, the company added.

“Security and flexibility were important to our engineers when creating Turing Robot,” said Albert Lin, senior vice president at Turing AI. “With built-in real-time streaming capabilities, operators don’t need to be tied to one location to monitor safety and security at their facility. Turing Robot’s video feed can be accessed by the Turing Vision platform from anywhere in the world.”

The company said Turing Robot can be combined with Turing Vision, its safety and security platform. Powered by several enterprise-grade algorithms, Turing Vision lets clients search, receive alerts, and analyze patterns of detections across all locations and historical data, including the robot’s livestream, without limitations.

“By connecting Turing Robot to their facility’s new or legacy cameras, our clients get a first-person view of every camera linked to Turing Vision,” said Ron Rothman, president of Turing AI. “The mobilized security platform of Turing Robot plus Turing Vision enables clients to improve operational efficiencies, increase safety, and get the most out of their camera infrastructure investments.”

The robot is also auto-docking and self-charging, which extends its battery life to ensure 24-by-7 functionality, Turing said. The company added that internal tests show that after almost one week of hourly patrols, the robot’s battery experienced minimal degradation and maintained recharging times. 

Features of the mobilized video security platform include:

  • 24/7 autonomous patrolling and first respondent capabilities
  • First-person view of all cameras in the facility via Turing Vision
  • Real-time live streaming and recording
  • People and vehicle detection, powered by AI software
  • Smart alerts for incident prevention
  • Archive and backup clips to the cloud for future reference
  • The ability to upgrade and manage the system remotely.
