Prosegur Security USA has announced the integration of its newest security technology, a robot dog named Yellow, into its private and professional security offerings for perimeter patrol. Yellow has several applications. He can be deployed in situations that are too dangerous, or too difficult, for human entry. In addition, he can be deployed at events and with the help of facial recognition technology, can identify “friend or foe”, alerting security of potential threats.
Yellow is powered by Prosegur’s GenzAI platform and AI partner Azena, enabling risk situations to be communicated via 5G technology to any Prosegur security operations center (SOC). As an extension of Prosegur’s GenzAI platform and in partnership with software from the Azena marketplace, Yellow incorporates video analytics into its guarding tasks to detect and recognize suspicious elements, instantly alerting the SOC of any possible threats.
Yellow provides enhanced support and improved efficiency of human patrol operations, elevating safety and security measures of stand-alone manned guarding. Designed with hypersensitive sensors, Yellow can also detect fluctuations in temperature and gas, which might indicate a gas leak or fire.
Yellow can perform perimeter patrols either independently or supervised by a security team member, allowing for real-time application at either a private business or public event, including concerts and athletic games. Yellow’s machine learning capabilities also enable it to adapt to any terrain, avoid obstacles, and create a comprehensive map of its patrol area.
Additionally, Yellow’s advanced equipment allows communication to the SOC/local security while also relaying its physical position without interruption. Yellow’s capabilities are flexible and adaptable, and the dog seamlessly integrates into Prosegur’s holistic approach to security.
Previously showcased at Rock in Rio Lisbon 2022 and the Mutua Madrid Open, Yellow will make its U.S. debut at this year’s Global Security Exchange (GSX) event in Atlanta, GA from Sept. 12-14. During the event, Yellow will patrol the Prosegur booth perimeter, demonstrating guarding and detection, advanced remote support, and visitor interaction capabilities.
