MATAR 2.0 showcased in SPF workplan 2018

At the Singapore Police Force’s (SPF) annual workplan seminar on 3 May 2018, the Multi-purpose All Terrain Autonomous Robot (M.A.T.A.R. 2.0) was showcased to Law and Home Affairs Minister K. Shanmugan. 

This is jointly developed through the partnership between Home Affairs Ministry’s Office of the Chief Science and Technology Officer and A*STAR I2R.

Equipped with sound and visual sensors with 360 video capabilities, this allows the autonomous patrol bot to detect suspicious activity on the ground. It is currently still in development stage and was first deployed for inhouse trial late November 2017.
