Who is a good bot?
The NYPD deployed its new robotic dog to a home invasion crime site on Tuesday morning in the new video show Bronx.
The video featured a blue-and-black, four-legged “Digidog” who walks on the sidewalk, joined by its operators.
The videographer, Daniel Walls of FreedomNews.tv, wrote that the dog responded to a home invasion and blockage situation on East 227th Street near White Plains Road in Wakefield.
The NYPD could not immediately confirm this on Tuesday morning.
Police confirmed responding to that address for an unspecified reason, and no one was found there.
The “dog” weighs 70 pounds, can walk about three and a half miles per hour and climb stairs, members of NYPD’s technical support response unit Abc 7 told
Back in december. It is covered in cameras and lights.
“This dog is going to save people, protect people and save officers,” said TARU Inspector Frank DiGiacomo.
“This robot is able to use its artificial intelligence to navigate things,” said Dipu John of NYPD TARU.
After the gunman pierced a nearby basement, the department deployed a robot dog back in October for a Brooklyn shooting.
