In a major boost to the development of force, Kerala Police on Tuesday unveiled a 'humanoid police', becoming the country's first police department to use a robot for the police work. Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan unveiled the robot in Thiruvananthapuram on February 19, which is named KP-Bot, at the state police headquarters, where the robot would be deployed to receive the visitors and their queries. 

The KP-Bot has been developed by Kochi-based startup venture Asimov Robotics Pvt Ltd and Cyberdome, a technological research and development centre of the Kerala police.

Speaking about the robot, Assistant Deputy General of Police Manoj Abraham, in-charge of cyberdome said that the robot would give information about all the services available at the Kerala police headquarters

"The robot, which is modelled after a woman police inspector, would give information about all services available at the police headquarters. The robot would be able to identify and guide a visitor to the department concerned. The robot would also inquire about the details of the visitors and record their complaints. Besides, the robot would be able to remember a person who had visited the facility in the past," he said.

As per reports, a system to detect explosives is also going to be installed in the humanoid in the upcoming future. Furthermore, a system which would identify and salute the senior police officers is also going to be installed.

The KP-Bot currently would issue the identity cards to the visitors to the police station and allot time to them for their meeting with the police officers.
