How does SAM work?

SAM is mobile

SAM is the first robot that can recognize people and objects while on the move. Since SAM knows exactly what the floor plan of the premises looks like, and SAM features lots of sensors, it can effortlessly pass by obstacles, take the elevator, and also open (automatic) doors while making its surveillance rounds.

SAM sounds the alarm

SAM responds to signals by alerting the police, the fire brigade, an external incident room or the owner of the premises. If required, it can be interactive by establishing a speaking/listening connection with an emergency switchboard or setting up an audio/video stream. If a person fails to identify themselves through the badge reader on time, or tries to sabotage SAM, SAM will always sound the alarm.

SAM is watchful

SAM scans the room it is patrolling and can recognize fire (smouldering and smoke), faults in technical systems and air conditioners, UPSs, generator sets and current systems at an early stage. SAM is also on the look-out for leaks, toxic substances, smoke and temperature differences.

SAM is intelligent

SAM offers lots of programming options. Whenever SAM encounters an obstacle in its path, for example a box that has accidentally fallen from a rack, SAM will record this and choose a new patrol route. It will store the information about the object and remember the new route, so that it can take the changed route during its next round. SAM varies its routes and repeats a route if it has noticed something that may pose a danger.

And finally

SAM is never tired, empty or exhausted; it uses its charging station during quiet moments.
