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.
