Project description

Currently the Security industry faces major challenges, as it becomes increasingly difficult to find candidates to fill guard job vacancies. To solve this problem Ascento will offer a Robotics-as-a-Service Security Solution that performs outdoor patrols and interventions on large private properties (see the 1 min product video). With our solution we can make both Security more affordable and leverage people’s decision making ability over multiple robots. This ultimately leads to better security at lower costs.


The goal of this project is to make the Ascento Robotic Security Solution more reliable and its autonomy more robust.
