Singapore Police Introduce Patrol Robots for Enhanced Security
Singapore's Police Force is stepping up its security measures with the deployment of patrol robots across the city. After more than five years of successful trials, these formidable 7-foot-tall robots are set to augment frontline officers and ensure public safety. The first two robots have been patrolling Changi Airport since April, projecting an additional police presence and acting as extra "eyes on the ground."
Equipped with 360-degree vision, cameras, sensors, speakers, and a display panel, the robots enforce cordons, warn bystanders, and enable direct communication with the public. During incidents, they use their blinkers, sirens, and speakers to maintain order until human officers arrive. The integration of robotics aims to enhance operational efficiency and capabilities of frontline officers, enabling them to be more effective in their duties.
The robots, described as the latest addition to the Singapore Police Force's technological arsenal, have in-built speakers for audio messages and LCD panels for visual messages. With extendable masts, they reach a height of 7.5 feet, providing unobstructed views for better incident management.
As Singapore continues to lead the way in technological advancements, these patrol robots mark the latest addition to its growing fleet of robots employed for civic duties. The force plans to progressively deploy more robots across the city-state, ensuring enhanced security and public safety.
Stay tuned for more updates on Singapore's innovative use of technology.
