Coretronic Intelligent Robotics (CIRC) is trialing two automatic surveillance drone systems for security patrols at the Tongluo site of Hsinchu Science Park, according to company president Andy Hsin.

The automatic surveillance drone system, via setting flight missions based on management needs in advance, enables drones to automatically take off, patrol, land and be charged with power, Hsin said.

Of the site's total land area of 349.7 hectares, 72.5% is occupied by public and service facilities and conservation zones for which regular security monitoring puts a large draft on the existing security guard staff, Hsin noted. Through collaboration with the staff, flight missions cover regular patrols, recognition of anomalous vehicles, inspection of construction progress, detection via thermal sensing, remote real-time monitoring, detection of urgent cases for immediate handling, Hsin indicated.

The drones can also collect information for analysis or model building for decision making, Hsin said.

CIRC plans to offer high-precision and high-payload drone solutions for diverse commercial use in the first half of 2020, Hsin noted.

A subsidiary of LED backlight unit (BLU) maker Coretronic, CIRC is a startup engaged in development of human-machine interaction, motion control, intelligent recognition and fusion of sensing.
