Hyundai turns instant robot into factory security inspectors

Hyundai Auto Robot Group provides factory safety services, which is a kind of safety robot for industrial sites. The organization also posted a video of the robot on its YouTube channel. It was also announced that a test would be carried out at the Kia plant in South Korea.

The robot is based on a four-legged robot called Spot from Boston Dynamics. It uses artificial intelligence, autonomous navigation, remote operation technology and a server unit developed by the group's robotics laboratory to process artificial intelligence for the robot's use in various industrial tasks.

The company has announced that the Factory Security Service Robot is the first collaboration project with Boston Dynamics. The robot makes it possible to identify hazards and ensure the safety of workers in industrial sites.

“We continue to develop intelligent services to detect risks in industrial sites and help maintain a safe work environment by working consistently with Boston Dynamics.”

With a built-in thermal imaging camera and a 3D LiDAR sensor, the robot can detect people in the area, monitor high temperatures and potential fire hazards, and see if the door is open or closed.

The robot can be controlled remotely via a secure website that provides real-time information about its movements in the plant, allowing office staff to monitor industrial areas remotely.

AI technology also enables bots to detect threats and send warnings to managers via secure websites.

Hyundai has equipped the robot with many improvements

Based on these functions, the robot can share real-time images of on-site conditions and activity history with the control center and send alarms via the control page to enable rapid response in situations.

Managers can switch to manual operation if necessary to take a closer look at larger industrial sites.

It is also possible to connect several factory service security robots to the control system in order to check different areas at the same time.

Four-legged robots can navigate in tight spaces and also recognize blind areas that are difficult for the human eye to see.

Application of group technology to discover bots can provide improved autonomous functionality. Based on the group's experience in developing service robots. The robot is equipped with various technologies suitable for independent patrol services in industrial field environments. Including task management and vision technology based on deep learning.

And through the pilot process at the Kia plant in South Korea. The group uses robots to aid night security patrols and create a safer environment for workers.

Before expanding the patrol area and considering additional deployments to other industrial sites, the team must also conduct a proof of concept and evaluate its effectiveness and applicability.
