Meibao stands 1.7 meters, with cameras as eyes and a big screen showing images on its chest, the Global Times reported. The technology is a combination of biological recognition, big data analysis, inertial navigation system and other technologies, which can accurately process the information of pedestrians, according to information provided by
Liu said the institute monitors and records neighborhood conditions.
If any suspects show up in the community, Meibao or similar high-tech door locks would recognize them and the alarm in the department would sound off, Liu said.
“I would be truly at peace with Meibao’s presence,” said a resident who seems surprised to have such an intelligent watchman.
Meibao not only monitors illegal activities but also provides useful information to residents. For example, it can provide weather forecasts and interesting stories, and even play music, which often attracts many children to talk with it, said Liu.
The institute has launched a project called “intelligent home” involving the robot, facial recognition door locks, digital annunciator board and smart watches designed to record senior citizens’ health condition, Liu added. The project has been welcomed by watchmen.
