Robotic Patrol Dogs Are Already Guarding America’s Borders

The United States has already begun using robotic dogs to guard its borders. According to new data released by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), robotic patrol dogs are being tested on the US southern border.

The robots are being tested in various situations, which Department of Homeland Security officials say have been successful so far. There is no set timeline for the full rollout of these autonomous four-legged robots to begin, but it could happen in the very near future thanks to successful trials. According to DHS, the development of these machines will continue, and the southern US border could be a great place to use these machines, given its inhospitable terrain.

Development is being led by DHS’ research and development arm, the Office of Science and Technology, which specializes in automated ground observation vehicles (AGSVs). The vehicles are built by robotics maker Ghost Robotics, best known for their Ghost Vision 60 robot. DHS test robot dogs are equipped with inspection cameras and sensors and are programmed to autonomously patrol pre-set GPS waypoints. They can inspect train carriages at railroad stations, walk around carriages, examine residences, and react to encounters with potentially hostile people. They are well suited for rough terrain at the border.
