But the robotic dogs from Ghost Robotics are barking up the right tree when it comes to the needs of a wide array of potential customers. That's according to Dallas-based AT&T, which is collaborating with Ghost to offer "network-connected" robotic dogs for public safety, defense, federal and state agencies, local police and fire departments, and commercial customers.
