Keeping up with the Dark Web

Written by Cynthia Hetherington, President of the Hetherington Group, Robolliance Expert

The Dark Web is a platform of villainous information. Like a car accident on the other side of the highway, it’s human nature to want to rubberneck. But the Dark Web is also a brilliant tool for anonymous communication. As an investigator, I don’t want to look away. Like human and autonomous, technological sentries, like-minded investigators must enter into darkened spaces to shine light on potential threats in a proactive posture.

Robotic and Aerial Security as Part of Overall Risk Mitigation

Article written by Linda Ziemba, a Founding CEO of Drone Go Home (DGH), Robolliance Expert

Organizations concerned enough about security or intellectual property protection to deploy drone detection solutions, also known as Counter-UAS (C-UAS) do so largely as part of overall risk mitigation strategies.

Integrating Biometrics Technology and Robotics to Reduce Security Breaches

Article written by Claudine Hudson, Robolliance Expert

The objective of robotics is to either reduce cost or increase efficiency, and we get a double win if we are able to achieve both. We are also capable of integrating robotics with other applications, such as biometric devices, to achieve this objective. Modern biometric identification management systems are comprised of hardware and software that are simple to install and easy to use. This reduces the need for advanced training and ongoing management expenses.

Video & Cameras Used for Public Surveillance Have Leaped Milestones

Article written by Mark I. Brodie, President MiB Mediaworks LLC, Robolliance Expert

In recent years, public surveillance has grown exponentially due to the use of gigabit networks, hi-resolution IP streaming cameras, and advanced sound recording and technology. This meteor growth has created a new global market for UGVs, UUVs, UAVs and drones, forcing us to look at these surveillance tools with growing concerns.

Mitigating Risk – Where Robotic Security Fits In

Article written by Linda Ziemba, a Founding CEO of Drone Go Home (DGH), Robolliance Expert

Let’s explore how “robotic security” can help mitigate emerging Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) risks from commercially available quadcopters in public gathering scenarios. Airborne threats represent a relatively new threat vector for outdoor concerts, stadiums or any large public gatherings.

A Filmmaker’s Perspective on Security Bots

Article written by Mark I. Brodie, President MiB Mediaworks LLC, Robolliance Expert

As a filmmaker, I use the camera and lens to capture new, differing perspectives or points of view by applying various angles, lenses, and light. I use an array of microphones in the same way, giving different textures to the sound I record. It is only later, sitting in my very quiet edit room, reflecting on what I have captured, do I clearly see what the story is about.

Glass Half Full – Balancing Optimism & Critical Thinking of Security Robotics

Article written by Alice DiSanto, Director of Marketing, Sharp Robotics Business Development, Robolliance Expert

A common expression of optimism - “The glass is half full.” – is also optimistic common ground for the security industry when it comes to the basic benefits of robotics. Suppliers of air, land and sea robots appear to be in full agreement when touting that this technology will liberate manpower of routine guarding tasks, characterized as repetitive, mundane and at times dangerous, so that people can shift their attention to more critical, intelligence-based work.

Outdoor Security Robots - Best Fit Environments and Duties

Article written by Alice DiSanto, Director of Marketing, Sharp Robotics Business Development, Robolliance Expert

Each of us can think of something we do on the job (or off) that we’d much prefer to hand off to someone (or something) else. That’s the sweet spot for robotics. The best environments and duties for any robot can be found in what we as humans consider redundant, objectionable and unsafe.

Cell Phone Numbers are the New SSN

Written by Cynthia Hetherington, President of the Hetherington Group, Robolliance Expert

Social security numbers (SSN) have been the mainstay of investigators since Hank Asher gave us DBTxp in the early 80’s. The SSN is an anchor to a person, that helps us define who one individual is versus millions.  Yet, it is protected information, heavily regulated and dangerous to use and write up in a report. On the other hand, a cellular number is also a one-out-of-a-million number, which can be used to locate a person, it is not protected and there is a good chance if you dial it, your subject will answer.

Now That Robots Are Here, What Do We Do with Them?

Written By Brian Higgins, President of Group 77, Robolliance Expert

It is obvious that the current safety threats this world faces will not only be here for some time, but will continue to evolve, creating an increasing need for greater levels of security and security measures where little or none existed before. Therefore, protection against these threats must in turn evolve to meet the need created by these threats.

Focusing on The Promise of Robotics

Written by Ramesh Ratan, CEO of Bell and Howell, Robolliance Expert

Many people, including some very famous inventors and intellectuals whom I admire, are afraid of automation. Perhaps they’ve read too many sci-fi stories or seen too many movies where robots take over the world. Or perhaps they’re concerned about the very real issue of job displacement, where people are being replaced in manufacturing and processing environments by robots that can do the job quicker and for longer.
