China’s first intelligent security robot has started work at Shenzhen Airport.
AnBot, the first intelligent robot in China trained to carry out security checks, will conduct around-the-clock independent patrols in the departure hall of Terminal 3.
Four high-definition digital cameras help the robot to effectively uphold civil aviation security and take advantage of its mobile face recognition. Images will be passed along to behind-the-scenes security stations, where they will be analyzed.
The robot is designed with four major capabilities:
- independent patrol
- face recognition
- intelligent service
- emergency response
The electric prod is activated remotely by a human.
Xiao Xiangjiang of the National University of Defense Technology:
“It can patrol, avoid obstacles and then charge on its own.”
