The Reborg-Q robots were programmed to guard specific courses or be controlled remotely through joysticks. Every robot is set with four cameras on the head and shoulders so that it is able to recognized humans, water leaks or fire and report back to a central room where the human security is watching the videos to find out the danger of each situation. Apart from monitoring abilities the robot can also be used to work together with people. It consists of for instance a touch screen monitor, a RFID card reader and a voice synthesizer to give information about the weather or promotional announcements. The security system is being tested in a shopping center and the Sohgo Security Services confirmed that they will be deploying the system in 10 more locations around Japan by next year. It looks like that in the near future we have to get used to robots walking around and performing different duties here and there.
