In a world fraught with danger and intrigue, there's a robotic dog on the case.
Verizon Frontline's Robotic Emergency Dog (RED) isn't quite ready for prime time, but it's among the "mobile asset deployables" the service provider is testing for emergencies.
Verizon recently hosted Light Reading, sending us to Minneapolis, Minnesota, so we could get a closer look at some of Verizon Frontline's vehicles already in use to provide wireless connectivity to first responders during natural disasters and other emergencies. Some of these trucks and other tools have been used to provide connectivity for attendees and first responders at venues such as the Super Bowl.
