TASER Partners with iRobot

July 02, 2007  | 

TASER International has teamed with PackBot manufacturer iRobot to develop robots that will help law enforcement agencies incapacitate and control dangerous suspects from a safe distance without exposing law enforcement and bystanders to potential harm. The new robots will incorporate TASER's trademark stun gun technology.

"TASER International is very excited to be entering into this alliance with a forward-thinking and proactive company such as iRobot," says Tom Smith, TASER's chairman. "Integrating our technology with the increasingly necessary capability of remotely controlled or autonomous robotic systems is a natural fit."

Smith added that the collaboration between the two companies coincides with TASER's commitment to customer satisfaction and superior technical capability.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The PackBot Explorer is a lightweight robot used to search hazardous areas, giving war fighters, law enforcement, and first responders a safe first look so they know what to expect and how to respond.
