Airport robot speaks 28 languages and fights crime
    2016-11-23  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    Passengers making their way through airport customs could soon be greeted by a fleet of pint-sized robots.

    Looking more robo-penguin than Robocop, Sanbot is being trialed in a number of industries, but will be used at airports to process travellers.

    Designed and built by Shenzhen-based Qihan, Sanbot is designed to interact with people in a range of environments. It is also capable of translating questions in 28 languages and when things get too much, people can be transferred to a human operator. Its makers say the commercial and home android combines the hardware of a cloud-connected robot with Qihan’s cloud service and a controller app.

    Sanbot was trialed in Zhuhai’s Gongbei Customs. Qihan claimed Sanbots in the trial were trained to recognize known criminals which “help customs inspect faster and safer.” But with most people having to crouch to speak to the little customs officer, Sanbot could prove more entertaining than intimidating*. In place of arms, the robot has a pair of flippers and moves around on a set of wheels.

    Sanbot uses a Microsoft Kinect-style movement tracking system and high definition camera, with a number of LEDs* for facial features and even an HD* projector in its head. It also has a touchscreen tablet computer embedded* in its chest along with speakers and a subwoofer*.

    Possible trades touted by Qihan including restaurant waiter, sales assistant, teacher, security guard, entertainment machine and monitoring home technology.(SD-Agencies)
