Several technology companies have started offering security robots to U.S. schools, with the Santa Fe, NM, school district now deploying an artificial intelligence-equipped robot from Team 1st Technologies to patrol campus grounds around the clock.
Team 1st's Andy Sanchez said the robot infers normal activity patterns and detects individuals present after hours or who are acting aggressively.
Sanchez said the unarmed robot could alert security teams, approach intruders, and send video footage to inform the officers' course of action.
Stokes Robotics' Robert Stokes said his company has partnered with multiple school districts to deploy robots that could point laser beams at armed intruders and attempt to make them drop their weapons using flashing lights.
