GXO Enhances Security and Safety with High-Tech DroneDog and Aerial Drone System from Asylon
Logistics leader to significantly increase deployment of automated security systems in the next year, forming one of the largest air and ground security robotics fleets in the world
To date, GXO has completed more than 12,000 alarm response and patrol missions with Asylon’s DroneCore robotic security system
“We launched the DroneDog and DroneSentry advanced security system at a customer’s facility that is more than 1 million square feet and requires a 24/7 security presence to safeguard our people and the products,” said
GXO has already used these robotic assets to conduct more than 12,000 patrols or first-responder missions. The company also has used these robotic assets to investigate and clear alarms, as well as complete video-verified security audits, saving miles of walk time for team members. This technology is detecting potential issues in real time while making the environment safer for team members and securing the customer’s products.
The aerial drone and ground robot are controllable and can be monitored through a network, empowering associates to more quickly respond to alarms or dangerous events. Automated robots are providing upskilling opportunities for team members as they receive training on how to effectively operate the technology and proactively create safer facilities.
The Asylon DroneDog system is connected wirelessly to the cloud and features a security payload, a weatherized charging station and the Boston Dynamics’ Spot® platform, which is an agile mobile robot that easily traverses uneven terrain, climbs stairs and autonomously avoids obstacles.
The DroneDog system has already logged more than 600 miles on patrol at the facility. It works alongside the DroneSentry system, which includes a weatherized base station for autonomous landing and battery swapping. The two technologies offer different vantage points and can quickly place a camera with a 20x optical zoom wherever it is needed, 24 hours a day. Together, they significantly expand security capabilities, covering more area in less time than traditional surveillance methods.
Asylon, the developer of DroneCore, also supplies experts who work from a 24/7/365 central control room in
To welcome the DroneDog “pup” to its new home, GXO held a company-wide naming contest. The winner: GiXmO, which was submitted by both
