ID Logistics, an international leader in contract logistics, and EOS Innovation, the award-winning French robotics service company, have announced a partnership to roll-out the e-vigilante robot at ID Logistics warehouses. The innovative e-vigilante mobile surveillance robot delivers optimum security, as well as increased reactivity and mobility.
EOS Innovation’s first security robot has been rolled out at an ID Logistics platform in the French region of Orléans, where it is being operated for a client in the cosmetics industry customer. At the 25,000m2 facility, highly sensitive due to the value of goods stored on-site, e-vigilante adds another dimension, complementing the work of security guards.
e-vigilante: a robot meeting ID Logistics’ need for tighter surveillance
EOS Innovation designed and created the e-vigilante robot to enhance the interior security of warehouses, industrial sites and logistics platforms. The mobile, autonomous and multi-function robot moves at speeds between 5 and 10 km/h, follows pre-programmed rounds and identifies anomalies, break-ins and movements. When it detects an incident, e-vigilante alerts an off-site security operator, sending real-time video feed and incident information which displays on the site map. The security operator can then take control of e-vigilante remotely to assess the situation, categorise the level of alert and take any necessary measures, all the time staying out of physical danger.
Eric Hémar, Chairman and CEO of ID Logistics, commented: “I’m delighted to be announcing this partnership with EOS Innovation. Thanks to EOS Innovation’s acclaimed expertise in robotics, ID Logistics is able to offer optimum and innovative security arrangements at its logistics platforms to meet the needs of our prestigious customers.”
David Lemaitre, Chairman and Founder of EOS Innovation, said: “The e-vigilante roll-out at ID Logistics demonstrates the trust and interest shown by this major logistics group in a solution that enhances the security of its sites, for the benefit of clients.”
