Robo Cops Headed To Houston
Houston Transit Authority Approves Robo Cops
Robot security guards are going to a transit center, park and ride lot, and train station in the coming months.
According to a news report, the Houston, Texas Metropolitan Transit Authority board approved a $270,000 test of the techno-police.
“They proved to be deterrents,” said Denise Wendler, Metro Chief Information Officer.
Wendler said that in the first year, department leaders would determine which parking lots, bus centers, and train stations should get a robot.
Metro CEO Tom Lambert, former police chief, said robotics would serve as a metro police multiplier.
While they are cost-effective crime prevention, the study states, the systems have sparked concerns of a robot wandering public areas capturing everything and reporting back to private and public bodies.
