The interior ministry of Tunisia has deployed “Robo-Cop” a police robot named PGuard. They want to use PGuard to ensure that residents follow lockdown rules to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
The PGuard can run for up to eight hours and is equipped with a 360-degree thermal camera, four full HD infrared cameras, GPS and a laser telemetry system. It is unknown how many PGuard are roaming the streets of the country’s capital Tunis.
The lockdown requires people to stay in their houses; however, people are allowed to leave their houses for medical reasons and to purchase necessities.
