Create reliable, autonomous and affordable robots for the security industry
This was the vision of security industry leader and now Gamma 2 Robotics CEO Lew Pincus. After more than six years listening to the “Voice of the Customer” and seeing the commoditization of human labor in the guard industry, Mr. Pincus set out to find a game-changing solution that would transform the security industry.
Gamma 2 Robotics was originally founded by two PhDs whose theory was to develop an artificially intelligent brain to self-locate the robot within an indoor environment, and then process sensor data to perform security patrols independent of human oversight. Mr. Pincus joined the company as an advisor and then became its President and CEO in April 2015.
Building on what the founders developed as a prototype, Mr. Pincus recruited a world-class robotics team including Chief Robotics Officer Frances X Govers to build a commercially viable product to perform security tasks and act as a force multiplier for the industry. Those efforts resulted in RAMSEE.
RAMSEE the security robot is designed to provide a robust, rugged and reliable low-cost solution to the rising cost of human labor in an industry plagued by high turnover, poor reliability and increased risks associated with protecting people, property and valuable assets. This disruptive new “smart” technology augments security labor to reduce costs, increase the predictability and reliability of performance and mitigate risk using its complete set of onboard sensors and innovative machine learning technology.
Affordable – increasing security needs and requirements coupled with decreasing budgets placed a particular pinch on providers and integrators alike. Our product had to be affordable for a variety of markets and budgets.
By incorporating off-the-shelf technology whenever possible we keep costs down making our robots affordable; often the ROI is less than one year.
Autonomous – “workforce multiplier” is another way to say “autonomous”. Security service providers faced dwindling qualified staff and budgets simultaneously. For any technology to be considered, it had to augment the workforce in place if any, and certainly not require more.
Making an autonomous robot is primary to our mission; autonomy is what differentiates our robots from any other on the market and makes them a team member immediately at installation.
Reliable – the robot had to perform consistently; alerting appropriately, moving safely in its environment and performing security tasks as designated during every patrol.
