Wild photos show how TERMINATOR DOG ROBOT could soon be deployed to border patrols

ROBOT dogs patrolling the US border could be in our near future.

The Directorate of Science and Technology is lending new technology to US Customs and Border Protection that can weather the harsh landscape of the US Southwest.

“Southern Border can be an inescapable place for humans and beasts, and that’s why machine Brenda Long, S&T program director, said.

“This S&T-led initiative focuses on Automated Ground Surveillance Vehicles, or what we call ‘AGSVs’. Basically, the AGSV show is all about… robot dogs. ”

The goal of the program is to reduce human exposure to life-threatening environment. The robotic dogs weigh about 100 pounds and are “bred” for the job CBP needs to do.

“It is a rugged, four-legged robot. It traverses all types of natural terrain including sand, rocks, and hills, as well as man-made environments, like stairs,” said Gavin Kennally, product manager for Ghost Robotics.

“That’s why you want the legs, not the track.”

The “dogs” are built to withstand high temperatures, low oxygen levels and can operate in tight spaces.

“In short, the robot dogs will need [figuratively] Long said.

The video shows the dogs undergoing tests as they perform endurance exercises and overcome difficult terrain.

In the future, robots may shoulder many of the physical burdens of working as a CBP officer.

However, it’s still a long time before we see it “Man’s Best Friend” on the field, according to Long.
