What is a
BlackBox?

A ruggedized device that adds forensics recording capabilities without complexity.

An unprecedented leap in robot forensics and traceability that holds up to several months (or years) of robot network data recording. Welcome to the first ever made traceability device for robotics.

BlackBox provides a cutting edge robot forensics element: a secure data recorder. BlackBox empowers robot users to forensically identify cyber attacks, problems or malfunctions in their robots.

Why do you need one in your robot?

Robotics is still on its infancy. Vendors are still maturing their products, users learning to use them and most technologies are fully vulnerable to security threats. Hazards are real and can lead to relevant losses[1].

BlackBox features an industrial-grade recorder system for robotics which combines cutting-edge technology with Plug & Play configuration. Capture all kind of relevant incidences. Get tracking of all actions done to your robots inside the company. Store the most relevant auditable information to ensure reliability. Gain robot visibility. Do not worry about untracked cyber attacks anymore or unwilled not registered actions.
