Shadow Runner

First surveillance robot
made in France dedicated to site security and preventive maintenance

Running Brains GR100 autonomous surveillance robot

One robot, two jobs

Preventive maintenance and security

The GR100 robot is a major robotic innovation that simultaneously performs two tasks: securing and inspecting your facilities. The robot patrols completely autonomously, avoids obstacles and detects anomalies (intrusions or business anomalies) thanks to its embedded algorithms . The GR100 robot alerts the on-call team based on the rules you define.

Tighten up your security

While maximizing your ROI

The GR100 security robot can solve your main security challenges by automating your site’s security inspections.



The GR100 is a technological gem 100% made in Bordeaux.



Tighten security at your site while reducing your stand-by and emergency response costs.



Fully autonomous on the ground and continuous operation in all weathers.


Sites & security officers

Executes high-risk missions while the operator assesses the situation remotely and gives instructions.

Use Cases

Storage of goods

Schedule routine patrols 24/7 in a given perimeter and detect vehicles and intruders.

Seveso sites

Strengthen security at sites more likely to be targets of malicious acts as a matter of priority with a state-of-the-art solution to ensure everyone’s safety.

Airports, ports

Guarantee security in regulated environments: 24-hour security patrols, routine inspections, monitoring of logistics flows.

Energy, oil & gas

Ensure perimeter security, monitor large, hard-to-access unmanned areas, detect leaks, spills and fires, and help ensure compliance with applicable regulations.

Industrial areas

Ensure site perimeter security, receive confirmation and carry out preventive maintenance at your facilities.

Car parks

Accompany surveillance teams on the ground, identify vehicles with automatic license plate recognition, record movements, and prevent acts of vandalism.

A human-robot team

A winning combination

Looking for the best solution to monitor your industrial site and ensure its security? A human-robot team.


A human-robot patrol team is more dissuasive than a team of humans or robots alone.


The robot will carry out high-risk missions, ensuring your employees remain safe and isolated workers are protected.


The robot can handle repetitive and tedious tasks, freeing up your security officers’ time for higher value-added tasks.


In case of danger, the GR100 robot can carry small loads (first aid kit, defibrillator, fire extinguisher, etc.).

Running Brains

Jérôme Laplace, an entrepreneur with a passion, began developing his teams’ potential in 2008 and has since seen his two companies expand: Génération Robots has become a European leader in service robotics and HumaRobotics a major player in industrial robotics.

Familiar with the challenges raised by outdoor mobile robotics, his teams are aware of the limits of existing technologies. So they turned their hand to developing their own hardware and software technology to address the major industrial safety concerns.

Then followed several months of brainstorming. Research. Long meetings spent working out the details. Thousands of lines of code. And finally, through sheer resilience, a first prototype.

It stoically covered 2,135 miles during 9 months in all possible weather conditions. While we watched. Approved its design. Validated its behaviour in an infinite number of scenarios. Detecting people. Taking measurements. Transmitting data.

We did it! And can now provide the first autonomous surveillance robot made in France dedicated to industrial site security and preventive maintenance.

We are proud to present our brand: Running Brains.
