Human being are not only the victim of mankind cruelty, but machines has also witnessed this.
Recently a five-foot droids, who just make its first step into the human society, knocked out be a drunkard man. This is the first time Robot got beaten up, Pepper has felt the cruelty of mankind while working in a phone store, while Hitchbot lasted just two weeks when it tried to cross America. It suffered a vandal attack in Philadelphia that cut its journey short.
Police say Jason Sylvain knocked down the Knightscope droid while it was patrolling the parking lot, last week. The man faces prowling and public intoxication charges, but it appears the robot gets some credit for arresting its attacker. Stacy Dean Stephens, Knightscope’s VP of marketing told that: “The robot did exactly as it was suppose to do. The ‘assault’ was detected and immediately reported. The alarms on the robot sounded, the suspect attempted to flee the scene and was detained by one of my colleagues and me until the Mountain View Police arrived.”
Sylvain apparently wanted to test the security of Knightscope’s patrol drones. We’re more intrigued as to how he toppled 300 pounds of robot. That might prove useful in the future.
