The Singapore Police Force has announced ambitious plans to roll out more patrol robots across the city, after more than five years of limited trials.
In a bid to increase frontline patrols, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) plans to deploy robots at Changi Airport's Terminal 4 as a first step, to be followed by further rollouts across the city of 5.6 million people.
The project aims to increase surveillance and law enforcement resources and reduce the need for officers to conduct physical patrols. The use of robotic technology can be used to enhance such operations and reduce the need for officers to conduct physical patrols.
The robots are equipped with cameras that can detect poor social behavior and send real-time alerts to the command center. The robots will monitor crowds in public places for what authorities call "undesirable social behavior.
The robots will look for instances of smoking in restricted areas and illegal food vendors. They will patrol the area for improperly parked bicycles and mobility devices, and motorcycles using sidewalks and walkways. If the robot detects any of these behaviors, it will notify its command center and then display appropriate messages on its screen to educate the public.
These police robots are equipped with various advanced features, including cameras, sensors, speakers, displays, flashers, and sirens. The presence of these patrol robots is the latest technological breakthrough that enables autonomous patrols and provides a better understanding of the overall situation so that more informed decisions can be made.
Singapore has actively promoted the use of robotic technology to enhance its surveillance and enforcement resources. The country is known for its strict laws and the presence of surveillance cameras throughout the city-state. In a country known for its strict laws and surveillance cameras at every corner, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) has ambitious plans to deploy more patrol robots in innovative law enforcement operations across Singapore.
