Independent Case Study
Surveillance / Private Security / Monitoring / Personal Safety / Robotics / HCI
THE CHALLENGE The challenge was to design a personal surveillance robot for urban commuters who walk in public spaces, to provide a sense of safety and security by creating an accessible and approachable robot that can respond to emergency situations without harming others.
THE OUTCOME DOKO is a personal surveillance robot designed to enhance personal safety for urban commuters. It is a small, approachable robot that can immediately respond to danger and alert bystanders while also having a countermeasure system that does not harm others.
Imagine living a busy city life: As the sun sets and the shadows of towering buildings stretch out to darken the bustling city streets, a young woman hurries along, heart pounding. The cold night air sends a shiver down her spine as she avoids the lurking eyes of strangers. But then, a flash of light catches her attention. A dog, walking alongside its owner with a glowing collar, barks at a passerby and the woman can't help but feel drawn to the scene. In that moment, she longs for a companion who could offer her the same sense of security, but with her work and living situation, owning a pet seems impossible.

DOKO uses advanced artificial intelligence capabilities to identify, track, and respond to potential threats more effectively by tracking and recognizing walking pattern.The robot is likely to become more prevalent in public spaces, such as airports or shopping malls, as a means of enhancing security and monitoring for potential threats. It can process large amounts of data in real-time, allowing for more accurate threat detection and response.
DOKO is a game-changer in the world of personal security. It provides a sense of safety and security to users who walk in public spaces, and it can immediately respond to emergency situations without harming others. The robot has become a favorite among urban commuters, and it has revolutionized the way people feel about personal safety in public spaces.
In the long term, we envision DOKO as a crucial tool in enhancing personal security in public spaces. The robot has the potential to be integrated with other technologies and to incorporate more advanced artificial intelligence capabilities, making it an even more effective tool for personal security.
