The Central Railway has introduced robotic captain ‘ARJUN’ for screening and surveillance in its fight against Corona. The purpose of making this robot is to prevent passengers and RPF personnel from coming into contact with each other at the station. This robot will measure the body temperature of any passenger within 0.5 seconds.

To put the brakes on the growing outbreak of Corona, the Central Railway has designed a robot that will screen passengers and protect them from contact with other people. This robot, invented by Central Railway, has been named ‘Captain ARJUN’.

 

RPF General Manager Arun Kumar inaugurated the robot online in Pune yesterday. Keeping in mind the social distancing, Central Railway has invented this robot. The purpose of doing this is to prevent passengers and RPF personnel from coming into contact with each other.

ARJUN: “Always be Responsible and Just Use to be Nice”

The Central Railway has invented the robotic captain “ARJUN” for screening and surveillance in its fight against Corona. Railway Protection Force, Pune on Friday launched a robotic captain “ARJUN” which stands for “Always be Responsible and Just use to be Nice” to speed up screening and surveillance. This robot has been launched for screening passengers and keeping an eye on the anti-social elements.

 

Features of Captain ARJUN

• It has a motion sensor
• A PTZ camera (pan, tilt, zoom camera)
• A Dome Camera.

• The camera uses artificial intelligence algorithms to track friendly activity and anti-social activity.

• One of these capable sirens is the Motion Activated spotlight H-264 Processor.
• In-built internal storage for recording when network congestion occurs.
• Captain ARJUN performs thermal screening and records the temperature in the digital display panel with a response time of 0.5 seconds. If the temperature exceeds the reference range, it will start giving signals by an alarm sound.

• It is placed with speakers to spread awareness message on COVID-19.
• Captain ARJUN also has sensor-based sanitizer and mask dispenser.
• The robot features floor cleaning with good battery backup.

• It has rugged wheels that support all types of surfaces.

 

Captain ARJUN Can be Deployed for Several uses

Alok Bohra DIG/RPF has contributed to making Captain ARJUN. Bohra stated, “Efforts to combat COVID 19 infection have begun in many sections of the world. Hence it’s prompting us to consider robotic screening. Captain ARJUN can be deployed for multiple uses, and this is an active element in access control and will enhance the station security plan.”

The success of this artificial intelligence has provided adequate protection to the passengers through the robotic Captain ARJUN. This innovation will add another feature to the new security measures introduced by the Indian Railways.
