Security robots are being used by police department and private companies. Some of these robots, which might be “on duty” at malls or office buildings, use artificial intelligence, cameras, GPS, lasers, and thermal sensors. They can collect data, including license plates, facial recognition scans, and IP addresses of smartphones that are near them. Earlier this year, the NYPD's use of Digidog, a remotely operated robotic dog equipped with surveillance cameras, drew public attention to the questions about the use of this robotic technology and the potential risks and benefits associated with it.
