Security robots are autonomous surveillance devices with cameras mounted on wheels that roll about patrolling any specific area allocated. These robots aid security personnel by alerting them to intrusions. They have an LED display on their face that displays emotions and triggers programmed responses based on their current status. These robots have a robotic voice that can be used to alert security personnel, and they can also communicate with other security robots in the area. The demand for security is primarily driven by security concerns and the rising penetration of automation approaches. To ensure the safety of major facilities, autonomous mobile robots built for outdoor use can minimize, and eventually eliminate the need for human personnel. Security robots are capable of providing the highest level of security at a fraction of the expense of hiring personnel. The global security robots market growth is expected to be driven by this factor as well as a decrease in the average cost of security robots.

COVID-19 impact analysis
The COVID-19 epidemic has raised the possibility of unmanned technologies being used in the private security and asset protection industry. According to a press release from a company specialized in mobile robot development and robotics R&D projects, Enova Robotic's camera partner, VIVOTEK, the Tunisian authorities have also used the P-Guard, a sturdy machine developed for multi-terrain applications. Dual 4-megapixel wide-angle lenses, 180-degree panoramic views, and IR illuminators with a range of up to 20 meters are included in the robot's features. Security robot use is projected to increase as a result of these developments, particularly during the pandemic. All these factors are assisting the growth of nanotechnology market size significantly.
Top impacting factors
The capabilities of these robots have been greatly enhanced as a result of the development of new technologies such as computer vision, natural language processing (NLP), and edge computing. They can currently be deployed in difficult terrains and surroundings to execute surveillance and other analytics-based tasks. The addition of several sensors to security robots has increased the robots' ability to analyses their surroundings and provide more trustworthy data. This has aided their inclusion into military devices tremendously. Security robots market growth may have a future, as evidenced by developments, such as KnightscopeIncK5, these robots previously lacked significant capabilities but due to advancements in sensor technology and automation capabilities, they have been developed to be useful in working applications. The advancement and refinement of neural network technology has also enabled these robots to learn and improve their functionality over time.
New product launches to flourish the market
In October 2020, SZ DJI Technology Co. Ltd., a China-based technology company, revealed two new payload solutions for its flagship commercial drone platform Matrice 300 RTK at INTERGEO, the DJI Zenmuse P1 and DJI Zenmuse L1, meant to serve the most demanding aerial surveying missions. The payloads are projected to be industrial game-changers, delivering increased efficiency and fresh views at a low cost without sacrificing the quality and accuracy of data acquired for precise aerial inspections and data gathering missions. In September 2020, as part of the U.S. Navy's Large Unmanned Surface Vessel (LUSV) competition, Lockheed Martin, an American aerospace, defense, information security, and technology company, planned to submit a study for an integrated and capable payload ship that will be able to patrol for lengthy periods of time. As the team's shipbuilder, Lockheed Martin has partnered with Portland-based Vigor Works, LLC. Lockheed Martin will manage the program and provide platform integration, systems engineering, combat management, automation, and cyber solutions as the prime contractor.
Rise in commercial end-user industries
Commercial companies and related industries make up a significant sector of the economy, with a thriving industry boasting large resources to spend on security. As a result, security robots provide a compelling and quantifiable value proposition in this industry. While billions of dollars are spent on autonomous car R&D, indoor robots for commercial areas benefit from advances in sensor technology, computation, machine learning, and open-source software. The security robots’ sector is expected to grow at a rapid rate, due to rise in commercial security spending budgets and the availability of a largely untapped market. Indoor robots are becoming increasingly popular in the market, due to their vast range of uses in a variety of industries, including businesses and hospitals. Companies in the industry are creating unique robotic systems for specialized applications, and robots have the ability to provide a range of safety and commercial benefits.
