The Service & Security robot is obtained by fitting the
Techno-Cake home-security and service unit onto the base. The components allow the robot to signal the presence of smoke, gas, and intruders. Fitting the robot with a support attachment and plotter-device, the robot can utilize a humidity probe to detect water leaks. At the first sign of danger, it can inform a computer or trigger a built-in siren.
All four sides of the Service & Security robot variant with the center dome.
This Service & Security robot variant stands at approximately 33,5 centimeters or 13 inches tall.
A dark transparent dome is placed in the center of the Techno-Cake on the standard Service & Security robot version. This dome resembles a security camera housing, so the original plan for it may have been to add a security camera underneath it.
The home security module that comes standard with the Service & Security robots is equipped with power indicating LEDs, ultrasonic sensors, infrared communication, an alarm siren, and a detector for smoke and gas.
The base has 8 built-in bumpers that can be programmed to respond to touch or even avoid obstacles for a simple autonomous behavior. The pre-set function of the bumpers stops all motor motion if an object or touch is detected.
The Techno-Cake can hold up to 8 different hardware and software slices that can be removed and replaced by another.
The right side of the base houses the robot's power switch. Pushing the switch to the downward position powers the robot on.
The Modulus logo can be seen on top of each slice.
The left side of the base houses the user ports. On top is the auxiliary port for various accessories. Underneath is the power supply port, and on the side are the ports for the humidity probe and the cable link.
The robot with the RF-Command Keyboard. See the Command Keyboard page for more information.
The interchangeable slices can have abilities such as a phonemes synthesizer, voice recognition, infra-red communication, a meteo station, and more.
