SPOT proves its skills at the DB Test Centre Delitzsch

The Security Robotics Innovation Days have become a permanent fixture in our own company and well-known companies also participate in the event every year full of curiosity. In September 2021, we got into conversation with Mr Schermann, CTO (Security) of DB Sicherheit, among others, and promptly set up a joint practical test.

In several runs, different test scenarios are to check the suitability of the SPOT© walking robot with regard to the special needs of DB Security. The perfect location for this was quickly determined in joint consultation with the DB Training, Learning & Consulting training centre in Delitzsch. Here, various scenarios can be simulated on several thousand square metres and DB Security employees can be trained in dealing with dangerous situations. The perfect place to put the latest robot technology to the test.

All-rounder wanted! ... and found?

Extensive, confusing facilities such as freight hubs, shunting areas, loading zones, workshops, etc., by their very nature, place great demands on any human safety team. It is too easy for something or someone to go undetected amidst the buildings, locomotives and parked wagons, plus it often takes a large number of trained personnel to deal with further problems at night and in bad weather.

Thanks to a multitude of cameras and sensors, night vision capability, infrared optics and the ability to travel easily in confined areas, between or under wagons, and up and down stairs, SPOT© is the ideal choice for a robotic approach to security. So much for the theory. Now it was time to put the value and capability of the very flexible model to the test in practical on-site use.

Mastering even complex requirements - SPOT© from Boston Dynamics

On 17 January, a first visit took place, we and especially SPOT© toured the site. Criss-cross we went over tracks, rails, sleepers, ballast, grass and concrete surfaces, all during a short rain shower and in unpleasant single-digit temperatures. Weather in which you wouldn't want to send an experienced security guard out on patrol.

Security robots are hardly affected by these restrictions and so SPOT© not only mastered the parkour with flying colours, but also gave Mr. Marcus Schermann and Mr. Uwe Kluge, the "hosts" at the Delitzscher Training Centre, an idea of the multitude of possible applications. In further meetings we will work out a meaningful proof of concept and thus conclusively prove the feasibility of the application.

SPOT©light for an encounter of the technical kind

At the end of the visit there was a special highlight. Hildegard, a massive "old" V-locomotive, and SPOT©, our ultra-modern safety robot, sniffed each other out, both synonymous with the cutting-edge technology of their respective times.
