USE OF ROBOTICS AND CHATGPT
Since April, two autonomous robots have also been joining officers on patrols at Changi Airport’s Terminal 4.
The patrol robots provide multi-directional live video feeds to the police operations centre, and have thermal imaging cameras that go beyond normal human sight.
They have sensors to navigate travel routes and are equipped with loudspeakers to broadcast recordings and blinkers to alert people to their presence.
SPF is progressively deploying these patrol robots in more public areas around Singapore.
From August, another type of robot – a community engagement model known as CODY – will also be launched at the Central, Ang Mo Kio and Jurong police divisions for a six-month trial.
Developed by SPF and Ngee Ann Polytechnic in consultation with HTX, the robot uses the AI chatbot ChatGPT to answer public queries about police work.
It can communicate in Singapore’s four official languages, play interactive videos and quizzes, and even pose for photos.
