Public Safety and Security Robots
Power Facility Patrol Robots
We have sold numerous robotic solutions to power generation facilities for hazardous or remote inspection. The first set of robots below were built for a power generation facility to serve as inspection robots, but also worked well for security. With the arms they could open doors and move objects to drag them to an appropriate place.
We were then contacted by another power company to design and build a series of robots equipped with National Instrument's cRIO platform for research and development purposes. The idea was to use a simple prototyping environment such as LabVIEW to explore the use cases of robotics in power generation facilities. To increase the inspection capabilities and to better simulate the view-point of a person standing, a fixed and adjustable mast system was designed. The adjustable mast is powered by a 12-foot version of GeoSystem's Zippermast

Nuclear Facility Patrol Robot
A nuclear facility ordered two custom robots for inspection and security. They wanted one to be able to remotely open doors and move objects while another smaller more nimble robot one could run around and be another set of eyes for the larger robot. Both were able to be controlled wirelessly. The smaller robot used 802.11n or could be controlled using a standard Ethernet cable. The larger robot was controlled with a COFDM radio. As another option, a fiber optic cable could be used when wireless communication was not an option.

New York Fire Department
In September of 2011, the New York City Fire Department approached our team. They wanted us to come to NYC and provide a demonstration of our tactical support robots. What followed was a series of intense tests across the United States.
Several other robotics manufacturers participated alongside us in these rigorous trials. After the first tests, the FDNY chose our robot and another company for further tests. In West Virginia, our robot went through a variety of training exercises.
At the end of testing, the FDNY chose our LT-F robot for evaluation by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Maryland. These tests would result in the development of what would become the LT2-F.
The final test was a grueling trial by fire in Disaster City, TX. Disaster City is a professional training facility run by Texas A&M University. Testing was overseen by NIST. Members of the FDNY were present alongside other fire departments. Over a dozen other robotics companies participated in the tests. What followed was 4 days of intense exercises across a variety of scenarios. Our custom LT2-F proceeded to exceed expectations!
In the end, after two years of testing, SuperDroid Robots earned the confidence of the FDNY. We received the robotics contract and built an amazing robot. Their custom support robot would become the basis of our LT2-F system, now in use across the globe. We're proud to be the only company that was willing and able to meet the FDNY's strict requirements!
