Homeland Security: iRobot 210 Negotiator and Other First Responder Type Robots Proliferate to Border Patrol


May 23rd, 2012

Global Information Inc. would like to present a new market research report, "Law Enforcement, First Responder, Border Patrol Robot Systems of Engagement Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2013 to 2019" by WinterGreen Research, Inc..

The iRobot 210 Negotiator is a surveillance robot for public safety professionals. The robot is illustrative of devices that are likely to proliferate to every law enforcement agency worldwide. The iRobot 210 Negotiator performs basic reconnaissance. The robot increases situational awareness in dangerous scenarios.

First Responder Type Robot markets posted $440.4 million in 2011 and are anticipated to reach $1.6 billion by 2018 as next generation robots are introduced to manage situational response to community threats. Robots will see increasing use in protecting borders.

Police work robot security systems emphasize causality reduction during security patrols. This aim has resulted in investment in robotics technology because robots can prevent needless casualties. Robotic research is continuing to be a priority for government spending.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the study, "In the new global economy supported by the Internet, communication between countries has become ubiquitous, enterprise teams are comprised of people from many different countries working together to make the enterprise work. In this context the need for homeland security and first responder actions by one country against another country becomes far less necessary. In this context, first responder robots can be deployed situationally to achieve control of those who would disrupt or steal from law abiding citizens."
