China had unveiled a robotic crime fighter known as the AnBot at the Chongqing International Tech Fair this April. This was developed by the National Defense University to enhance the country’s anti-terrorism and anti-riot measures. The droid will patrol the departure hall of terminal three of the airport, reports the People’s Daily Online. The robot is to help relieve the pressure off airport police in their daily patrols and save human resources. AnBot can work around-the-clock and deter suspects with sound and light, and react to emergencies with an electric riot fork. The security robot is equipped with four high-definition digital cameras, which it can use to snap pictures of travellers’ faces, and then send them immediately to human co-workers for further analysis. It is capable of autonomous patrols, intelligent monitoring and auto recharging.
