Q. Q: A robot can't stop a crime in progress, so how would it help with a tragedy like Sandy Hook or Parkland?

A:  In addition to the enhanced (and eye-catching) physical presence and deterrence that security robots provide, feeding on-site security, school resource officers and administrators with actionable intelligence is key.  Security robots can alert the appropriate people that a person has been detected on campus at a time, or in a location, where there is normally no activity.  Blacklisted license plates and/or mobile device information of a known threat may provide just enough advance warning potential danger.  And a robot is a great tool to distract the attention of an otherwise determined individual.
