Sheriff's Office Robot Presentation to Four Rivers Career Center Students

Tyson Jones from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team visited with Information Technology and Project Lead The Way Engineering students at Four Rivers Career Center on Thursday, March 1.

Jones brought with him two of the Sheriff Office’s robots to show the students. He spoke to the class about technology used in law enforcement and answered questions.

One of the robots on display was the MK4 robot, recently purchased by the Sheriff’s Office with a grant. The robot can be used in SWAT incidents to gather information and communicate with a suspect.

The robot has a 4-foot arm with a claw that can open doors and grab items. It also can walk with its four legs. There are four cameras and a video screen on the controller. The robot can climb stairs and be upgraded.

Students got a chance to test and maneuver the robot themselves and also displayed robots they have in their own class. Photos are below.
