The increase of human needs has pushed the robotics sector to evolve even more. One area that begins to bloom in robotic systems are semi-autonomous or autonomous monitoring and guarding vehicles from a distance. The present platform is an example of such a system. It will be the analysis of its design, construction and operation. The operator driving the vehicle will have video feed and additional information about the space monitor. This system could be the basis of a complete automated platform with more sensors that will cover more needs.
