Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) is using robot patrols to beef up site security at its SuperTerminal 1 facility.
The first security robot is about to enter service, initially patrolling car- and truck parking areas, and export goods handling areas, mainly at night.
.As well as helping to reduce theft, the robots will also monitor the condition of cargo throughout the site, and will record any incidents of damage, to provide video evidence in the event of claims investigations.
The robot features a thermal imaging camera, a high-resolution camera with a wiper for outdoor use, a LiDar technology sensor for navigation and multiple ultrasonic sensors for collision avoidance. It can operate on any paved surface.
