On February 17, China’s first-ever police robot made its debut at Zhengzhou’s rail station.
The robot can move around by itself, and through its face recognition system, it can assist the police in recognizing fugitives. It can also interact with people and answer their questions. Additionally it measures the air temperature and can warn people in case of fire or other calamity.
China has increased its spending on robots for years, and is also increasingly profiling itself as a robot nation. The China Machinery Industry Federation aims for China to be one of the world’s most intensively automated nations by 2020.
“Where is his laser gun?”, some people on Weibo wondered.
