GXO Logistics Inc. has deployed a new robotics system for air and ground security at one of its major distribution centers in Clayton, Ind., the company announced June 8.
The DroneCore security platform is able to patrol the ground and air using DroneDog and DroneSentry robots. They provide data and onsite activity updates that can detect potential issues in real time and simultaneously report them to a security team.
“We launched the DroneDog and DroneSentry advanced security system at a customer’s facility that is more than 1 million square feet and requires a 24/7 security presence to safeguard our people and the products,” said Thomas Nelson, GXO senior director of security. “The combination of air and ground robotics gives us superb live video feed, including infrared vision for nighttime patrols, that we can operate, evaluate and respond to in real time.”
Asylon Inc. is a robotic perimeter security company that provided the platform. The company partners with commercial and government entities to modernize traditional security practices by providing customers with more advanced systems.
“The Asylon team is delighted to be deploying this technology at scale with GXO,” Asylon Chief Revenue Officer Michael Quiroga said. “DroneCore is a first-of-its-kind air and ground security robotics platform and is a perfect fit for the security and safety needs at GXO’s sites.”
GXO plans to significantly increase deployment of automated security systems across other sites within the next year with the goal of forming one of the largest air and ground security robotics fleets in the world.
GXO Logistics ranks No. 8 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest logistics companies in North America. — Transport Topics
