Autonomous AI security robot spotted patrolling Tokyo train station
The Perseusbot, as it’s officially called, moves autonomously, thanks to technology jointly developed by Seibu Railway, the Tokyo Metropolitan Industrial Technology Research Institute, and Japanese artificial intelligence firms Earth Eyes and Nihon Unisys.
As it patrols its territory, the Perseusbot scans the area with its onboard camera and also analyzes images sent to it by the facility’s preexisting installed security cameras, searching for humans moving aggressively or dangerously as well as suspicious unattended packages.
As it moves about a clear yet mechanical voice repeatedly saying “Security patrol in progress. Security patrol in progress.”
