Kerala police inducts India’s first humanoid robot officer
Published: February 21, 2019
The Kerala State Police claimed to have created history by becoming one of the world’s first and the very first police force in India to induct humanoid robots called ‘KP-Bot’. KP-Bot is designed to provide round-the-clock service, involving public interface and front office administration and overcome human limitations to avoid, to the extent possible, human error. However, it does not replace any human resources. Rather, it would act as the first contact point and a data collection tool to help improve the overall quality of service and performance levels.
