Halodi Robotics has announced signing an agreement to provide 140 humanoid robots to ADT Commercial, a U.S.-based provider of commercial security, fire, life safety and risk consulting services. The announcement is the result of an April 2021 partnership where Halodi secured an investment from ADT Commercial to develop a robot to complement the company’s physical security solutions.
With multiple customer pilot programs already in progress to test and improve the robot’s capabilities, ADT Commercial said it will begin making the robot available to its enterprise customers in late 2022.
The Halodi Robotics humanoid robot platform performs pre-programmed services using artificial intelligence. By observing and reporting on potential problems, and streamlining and standardizing tasks, the robot can support and expand the capabilities of a human team that may be stretched thin, Halodi said.
The service robots designed and built by Halodi are programmed beyond typical patrol functions of a basic security robot, the company added. If a robot on patrol identifies an anomaly, a security operator can wear a virtual reality headset to respond through the robot’s eyes, ears and body to open doors, provide access control, and pick up objects or even people – safely and efficiently.
“To our knowledge, this is the single biggest contract ever for humanoid robots,” said Bernt Øivind Børnich, founder and CEO of Halodi Robotics. “ADT Commercial has been an extremely collaborative partner throughout the development process. We are proud to partner with ADT Commercial and look forward to continuing driving innovation within the physical security market.”
