Southington H.S. Cyber Knights Revamps Police Robot

The Southington H.S. Cyber Knights robotics team were recently contacted by the Southington Police Department to help them repair and update the robot bought by the SPD through a grant received seven years ago. The robot, called Doberman, is used in police Bristol and Plainville Police Departments in 2-way communications and has the ability to relay videos. The SHS Cyber Knights Robotics Team took on the project installing a new microphone, new speakers, a camera and made the necessary programming installations. The Cyber Knights Team also added brackets and hooks to carry small items. This story would have been called science fiction a few generations ago but now it’s just another day at SHS.
