Embarking on the much-coveted road towards automation, India has launched its first humanoid robot cop in Kerala. Visitors to the Kerala Police Headquarters in the state capital will be greeted by the Robocop and will even direct you to where you need to go. The administration has decided to deploy the KP-Bot at the front office of the police headquarters.
Inaugurating the humanoid robot cop named KP-bot on Tuesday, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan made it the first ever police department in India to have a robot for police work. Chief Minister Vijayan inducted robot into the service with an honorary salute and the ‘RoboCop’ responded with a perfect salute; the Robocop has been given the rank of Sub Inspector (SI). Powered by Al along with a range of sensors gathering information of the surroundings, KP-bot can work alongside human beings seamlessly.
