In a story from Arab News, live-video-enabled security robots are patrolling the streets of Tunisian capital Tunis to help enforce a curfew.
“The unmanned ground vehicles are called P-Guard and locally developed by Enova Robotics,” the story reads. “They are being used by the Ministry of Interior to enforce its lockdown of Tunis.”  

The robots patrol the streets of the large North African capital city employing live-monitored cameras, as well as other familiar security solutions including two-way audio, infrared, GPS, and audible and visible alarms, helping to keep citizens at home.
“The robot uses several infrared cameras to function, which are arranged to cover the robot’s surroundings and it is also fitted with a thermal camera and a sound and light alarm system,” the story notes. “The robot incorporates GPS to locate itself in its environment as well as a laser telemetry system.”

tweeted video of the P-Guard in action shows the robot using two-way audio to allow a remote operator to confront a citizen out after curfew.
According to the Enova Robotics site, the P-Guard solution is fully autonomous but can be taken over by a remote operator [THE FOLLOWING SHOULD BE A BLOCK QUOTE, THEN DELETE THIS BRACKETED DIRECT]:
