About Unmanned security and disinfection robot "PATORO"

"PATORO" is one of the "low-speed Autonomous Driving three brothers" that runs at walking speed, and has the same rich expression as the Unmanned delivery robot "DeliRo™" and the Single-seater robot "RakuRo™". It is a robot developed with the aim of coexisting with people through the communication of voice. Using multiple cameras and laser sensors to detect passersby in the surroundings, it has functions to automatically avoid and stop safely in front of obstacles, as well as to announce by voice and ask you to give way. It is a robot that allows people around you to live comfortably and safely. PATORO is equipped with an optional disinfectant spraying function. In order to realize a safe and secure world in the future, we meet the needs for preventing the spread of infection in places where many people live and come and go such as airports, stations, office buildings, commercial facilities, hospitals and welfare facilities.
