In other states as well we can see cameras are installed with traffic lights for surveillance but Kerala has taken a one step further and installed cameras with AI software to detect helmet-less riders in two wheelers and drivers without seatbelt in four wheelers and they are also used to keep a check on speed limits as well. There requires no need for a cop to do challans as the violators get notified immediately in the cameras and challans will be send directly to their homes.

KP-BOT, KERALA AND INDIA’S FIRST FEMALE ROBOT POLICE..
KP-BOT is a new robot installed in the city’s police headquarters, that’s been assigned to front office duties. It will greet visitors as they enter and attempt to help them complete their official business efficiently.
KP-BOT is so efficient that it can record a person’s data using facial recognition technology. Once all the data is filled it can also help in recognising a criminal. “Humanoids in the future may also be used to investigate crime or control traffic”.
The Director General of Police (DGP) was quoted to India Today, “Women empowerment and gender equality were kept in mind while deciding on the gender of the first robot.
The visitors can directly interact with the SI-ranked KP-Bot. The robot is equipped with facilities to fix appointment with officers, provide them with identity cards and also open new files based on their grievances.
Just like other police officers, the RoboCop is capable of identifying higher officials and greet them with a salute.
Its duties would include identifying and guiding a visitor to the concerned department. It would also enquire about the details of the visitors and record their complaints.
