As we have already reported, the first robotic policemen caused concern among the Americans. So great was the concern, according to new information, that the NYPD decided to abandon the use of the Spot robot dog, rented from Boston Dynamics. According to the department, the contract was terminated ahead of schedule, and the robot will be returned to the manufacturer.
Police originally planned to test the Digidog dog Spot until August of this year. However, according to a spokesman for the department, this plan had to be abandoned, as the robot became a target for people who “used it as an excuse to incite racial hatred and controversy about surveillance.”
Critics of the innovation also expressed concern about a possible violation of the privacy of citizens when using the robot, which, during the test operation, which began in October, the police managed to use in several trips to the crime scene and situations with hostage-taking.
The source adds that for the entire duration of the contract, the police had to pay $ 94,000, while the robot can be bought for $ 75,000.
