Unmanned security and disinfection robot "PATORO™" will be tested at JR East Takanawa Gateway Station

ZMP Inc. in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo (CEO, Hisashi Taniguchi) to conduct a field trial of unmanned disinfection using Unmanned security & disinfection robot "PATORO™" (hereinafter "PATORO") from August at Takanawa Gateway Station of East Japan Railway Company in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo (President, Yuji Fukasawa, hereafter "JR East").

JR East is in the process of introducing the latest station service equipment and demonstrating robots at Takanawa Gateway Station. In this demonstration test, we will verify the operation of the disinfection work robot (autonomous mobile type) so that you can use the station with more peace of mind, and we will verify our unmanned security & disinfection robot "PATORO".

"PATORO" is a security robot developed for the purpose of unmanned patrol security in buildings and premises.To respond to the disinfection needs due to the recent epidemic of the new coronavirus, we developed an automatic control disinfectant spraying function and have started a service for installation from June.

JR East Takanawa Gateway Station is a railway station that opened in Minato-ku, Tokyo on March 14, 2020 (2nd year of Reiwa). This demonstration test will verify the effectiveness of the disinfection work by an unmanned disinfection robot at Takanawa Gateway Station after August 2020 (out of business hours at night).

By applying Autonomous Driving technology to robots and providing services, ZMP will contribute to the realization of a safe and secure world.

・Date: August 2020 or later (night/business hours)
・Location: Inside JR East Takanawa Gateway Station

[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.
