Hitachi Unveils Security Robot On Wheels

Hitachi is working on an R2D2-like security robot on wheels that can map out its surroundings using infrared sensors and a camera to detect missing items, suspicious packages and intruders. The 22-inch tall robot, which looks like a trash can and is reminiscent of the small, beeping robot in “Star Wars,” has a swiveling camera that protrudes like a periscope, enabling it to watch for suspicious changes in the landscape and send photos to a guard, Hitachi said Tuesday.
