Alaska DOT Aurora Robot Dog Wildlife Airport
Alaska’s Department of Transportation (DOT) and Public Facilities is now employing a $70,000 Aurora robot dog to scare away wildlife at Fairbanks airport. More specifically, it will monitor an outdoor area near the runway every hour in an attempt to prevent harmful encounters between aircraft and wildlife,



What sets Aurora apart from other robots is the fact that it can easily be disguised as a coyote or a fox by simply swapping out the replaceable panels. Alaska’s DOT will also use this initial test to see how effective of a deterrent Aurora would be with larger animals such as moose and bears.
