In this week’s Source Security round table, Robotic Assistance Devices President and CEO, Steve Reinharz weighs in on the impacts of technology on the security industry in 2017.

Additionally, the robots can be tasked with production functions such as thermal imaging. This can be deployed to detect failing power lines, thereby automating otherwise dangerous jobs.
