Advanced robotics have furthered the development of autonomous systems, which increasingly have produced unmanned platforms for security applications. Robots that can defuse bombs, for example, can mitigate specific threats while safeguarding human lives. So too have drones widened the use of video surveillance from the air. SIA tracks the latest developments in such technologies for its members.
