An Artificial Intelligence enabled robot “CAPTAIN ARJUN” has been launched by the Indian Railways’ Central Railway zone. The AI robot has been launched to intensify the screening of passengers and surveillance to keep a watch on anti-social elements. The above objectives will be achieved with the help of motion sensor, one PTZ camera and one Dome Camera installed on the robot. It also comprises sensor-based sanitizer as well as mask dispenser.
The Cameras installed on the CAPTAIN ARJUN uses Artificial Intelligence algorithms to track suspicious and antisocial activity. It also comprises of inbuilt siren, motion activated spotlight along with an in-built internal storage in order to record in case of a network failure. The robot undertake the thermal screening of passengers and captures the temperature in a digital display panel. It also sounds an abnormal automatic alarm indicating a higher temperature than reference range. Hence, Captain ARJUN will provide enough protective cover to the passengers while undergoing the screening and also ensure security in the railway premises.
