Thanks chinanews.com for the picture!
“On April 21, at the 12th Chongqing Hi-Tech fair, the National Defense University, a hotbed of Chinese military innovations, debuted the world’s first armed (albeit less than lethal) police robot.”
As People’s Daily extols, “AnBot is able to patrol autonomously and protect against violence or unrest.”
Great news for robotic industry, a big state started using them, I’m sure that USA and other states will start to do the same soon.
I’m surprised to see that China is the first, I believed that Japan or USA will be the first to have a police robot.
I want to see how well will work in reality, for example against guys with guns.
The robot uses not guns, but tasers.
