“The southern border can be an inhospitable place for man and beast, and that is exactly why a machine may excel there,” said S&T program manager Brenda Long. “This S&T-led initiative focuses on Automated Ground Surveillance Vehicles, or what we call ‘AGSVs.’ Essentially, the AGSV program is all about …robot dogs.”
The goal of S&T’s AGSV Program is to “leverage technology to force-multiply the CBP presence”Und “reduce human exposure to life-threatening hazards.”
“It is a rugged, quadruped robot. It traverses all types of natural terrain including sand, rocks and hills, as well as human-built environments, like stairs. That’s why you want legs, and not tracks,”Ghost Robotics’ chief products officer Gavin Kenneally stated.
They collaborated Ghost RoboticsThe press release stated that the industry partner, which develops innovative AGSV technology, achieved the goal. According to the press release, Ghost Robotics saw an opportunity to re-engineer its pre-existing robot dog in order to support CBP’s mission.
Robot dogs have one drawback: their dependency on batteries. It limits the robot dogs’ life span out in the field.
The deployment of robot dogs is still in the planning stages.
