Cobalt Robotics announced that it has raised $35 million in Series B financing. The financing was led by global technology investment firm, Coatue, and is intended for geographic expansion of services throughout the domestic United States. Security robots are an innovative new tool within the industry that enhance security programs by bridging the gap between traditional technologies and services such as cameras, access control, and manned guards.
Cobalt Robotics will introduce a new door integration that enables its security robots to open and then pass through a secured door without human intervention, a first for the industry. Cobalt Robotics’ new door integration feature enables its robots to seamlessly pass through areas closed off by a door. Using a secured, wireless credential, the robot transmits a signal using either Bluetooth or RFID technology to use the door’s access control reader, telling it to open.
Cobalt Robotics will unveil its new leak and spill detection sensing capabilities as part of the Global Security Exchange, one of the largest tradeshows and conferences to showcase the latest security technologies. At last year’s event, previously called the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, Cobalt Robotics was the recipient of the 2017 Judges Choice Award, the highest honor available as part of the ASIS Accolades Award program.
