New Robots Enhance HMH Public Safety/Security Team

Two new security robots – Holmes and Watson – are supporting the HMH public safety/security team by providing remote patrol coverage throughout the campus. We’re the first in Texas to implement this technology inside a building.

Object avoidance, artificial intelligence and smart navigation systems enable the robots to dynamically understand their environment every millisecond. The robots are equipped with a two-way communication system and built-in sensors.

If visitors are lost or need help, they can push a button on the robot and talk to security team members who are monitoring live video streaming. The robots also provide important pre-recorded messages to visitors.
