Who’s a great bot?
The NYPD deployed its new robotic canine to a house invasion crime scene within the Bronx on Tuesday morning, new video exhibits.
Video exhibits the blue and black, four-legged “Digidog” trotting alongside the sidewalk, joined by its handlers.
The videographer, Daniel Valls of FreedomNews.television, wrote that the canine responded to a house invasion and barricaded state of affairs on East 227th Avenue close to White Plains Street in Wakefield.
The NYPD couldn’t instantly verify this late Tuesday morning.
Cops confirmed responding to that tackle for an unspecified motive, and discovering nobody there.
The “canine” weighs 70 kilos, can run about three-and-a-half miles per hour and climb stairs, members of the NYPD’s Technical Help Response Unit told ABC 7 again in December. It’s coated in cameras and lights.
“This canine goes to avoid wasting lives, shield folks, and shield officers and that’s our purpose,” TARU Inspector Frank Digiacomo stated.
“This robotic is ready to use its synthetic intelligence to navigate issues, very advanced environments,” NYPD TARU’s Deepu John added.
The division also deployed a robotic canine again in October to a Brooklyn capturing, after the gunman holed up in a close-by basement.
