Intelligent humanoid robot ‘Sanbot’ fights crime at airports with facial recognition software

Robots are joining the fight against crime by helping catch suspects in airports using cutting edge facial recognition software. Customs personnel input information about wanted criminals into the Chinese made Qihan-Sanbot, so if an offender passes through the airport they can be tracked.

The Sanbots are humanoid robots that also offer customer service, chatting to people who need help in terminals. They are equipped to translate 28 languages and answer passengers’ questions . The robot can be programmed to work in a number of fields, including retail, education, healthcare, hospitality and security.

But it comes after robotics expert Noel Sharkey warned humanoid robots will one day ‘take over the world’ and we won’t be able to spot them.
