The Japanese security company Secom will begin using autonomous surveillance drones to monitor suspicious cars and individuals on the grounds of factories, stores and other work sites. Secom is one of the pioneer companies in the world that is using autonomous drones for private crime-prevention services. This will not put any security professional out of a job, and if anything, will increase the need for highly trained individuals. The drones are designed to fly at a low level, and when the on-site sensors detect a suspicious person or object, the drone will approach and begin capturing images that will then be relayed back to an organization's security monitoring system. In the case of the suspicious object being a car, the drone will photograph it, and record the vehicle's license plate. From that point, a dispatch unit can send individual guards to investigate and detain suspicious persons if necessary.
