【机器人保安不是替代人类而是缓解岗位空缺】新加坡用机器人保安来缓解当地的保安短缺问题。这些由SMP公司制造的机器人保安高1.6米,像一个潜艇。它的长脖子上有5个相机,配置了两个前置摄像机和四个轮子,可以记录车牌,观察范围广泛。检测到异常情况时还会发送警报,想让人时刻保持警惕是很难的,机器人则更容易做到,而且每月的花费也远低于人工。

Robots are starting to replace human security guards

It's no RoboCop, but this autonomous patrol bot is going to be seen more and more often around Singapore.

Ademco, a local security services company, recently launched a rent-a-robot service, in response to fewer people signing up to work as security guards.

The 1.6m-tall robots are less like China's egg-shaped robot police, but more like a submarine, with five cameras on its long neck, two front cameras, and four wheels.

The robot can also record licence plates, as well as a 360-degree view of surrounding activities from up to 10 meters (32 feet) away.

It'll also send alerts if it detects abnormalities like fire or loud sounds.

These robots are made by San Francisco-based SMP Robotics. The bots are designed to withstand Singapore's tropical climate, high heat, and humidity levels.

Ademco is hoping the robots will help offer an additional resource to its roster of human guards.

Companies can spend up to S$8,000 ($5,704) per month for two security guards covering 12-hour shifts, while the robot — which can operate nearly all day (minus charging times) would cost about S$500 ($356) less, estimates TODAY.

And unlike humans, these robots do not tire.

"There are also limitations in human beings," Ademco group managing director, Toby Koh, toldChannel NewsAsia.

Security staff patrol seven to eight times every 12 hours, he said. "If I were to do a patrol 10 times a day, at some point, my ability to focus and concentrate, [to] try to identify abnormalities...is going to deteriorate." IMAGE: SMPROBOTICS US/FACEBOOK

Perhaps more importantly, robot officers won't suffer from high turnover rates. With the long hours, Singapore is facing a shortage of security guards. In a 2014 report by the Straits Times,it's estimated that the country needed about 10,000 more guards, and security companies had to look to hiring personnel from Taiwan for armed auxiliary security services.

Ademco's main competitor, Certis Cisco, told TODAY that it was also keen to use autonomous bots, but didn't say if it would roll out a similar service.
