India’s First RoboCop Introduced At Kerela Police Station


Moving forward on the path of technological advancements, India has welcomed the country’s first-ever humanoid cop at the Kerela police headquarters in Thiruvananthapuram, as announced via a tweet.

Inaugurated by Kerela Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, the RoboCop, going by the name KP-BOT, has been designated as a sub-inspector (SI) in the police station.

The KP-BOT has been designed by a Kochi-based startup called Asimov Robotics Pvt Ltd in collaboration with Kerela Police’s technical R&D sector, Cyberdome.

To promote women empowerment, the humanoid has been made with feminine features, including a black bindi, dressed in Khaki uniform.

It has been assigned with a couple of responsibilities and duties which include receiving and assisting visitors in the headquarters, providing them with new identity cards, and look into case files by the cases.

Additionally, the robot can conduct video calls with senior officials and will be responsible for saluting and greeting the seniors.

Furthermore, the new cop is expected to soon get more features such as facial recognition, bomb detection, and more skills in the future as part of its regular updates.
