The Campus Security Robot Is On Duty

It can run up to seven miles per hour, and swim. It can climb steps and scale hills at a 40-degree gradient. It can be outfitted with sensors, night vision, arms, and deployable drones. It is a robotic dog — a “quadruped” platform developed by Ghost Robotics and enhanced by AT&T that, to date, has been used to patrol military zones. Now, the telecommunications giant is pitching a new use for this AI-friendly technology - campus security and safety.


The robot has a 24/7 perimeter patrol, can spot “unidentified” personnel, and disperse unruly protests. Smewhaat Orwellian.
