Police robots begin patrolling train stations in China


Robots have been deployed at China’s railway stations to help locate criminals using scanning and face recognition technology. It is reported by the British Sun.

In particular, you can see a policeman robot at Changchun Railway Station in Jilin Province in northeast China. The robot slowly moves around the waiting room, intently “examining” numerous passengers. The device can track and recognize people’s faces, comparing them with the base of wanted criminals.

Face recognition technology is already widespread in China, it works everywhere – from airports to office buildings. The country also has a “real name registration” policy, according to which citizens must associate their online accounts with an official state identifier.

A mandatory scan of the face of all buyers of new mobile phones also has recently been introduced in China, Belta reports.
