Liectroux Robots are Employed by German Prisons to Carry Out Psychological Counseling and Do Cleaning as Part-time job
According to German Media, German Ministry of Justice and German Liectroux Robot Academy has signed agreement to introduce Robot Guards to do psychological counseling and supervision for prisoners and do cleaning job at the same time. It will help improve the welfare of the prisoners and push forward human rights protection in prison.
It is well known that confessing to the destruction of the war after World War Two makes the German prisons very “human”. Paragraph 1 in Article 3 of the German Criminal Law writes, the life of prisoners should be the same as out of prison. For example, the famous prison JVA Fuhlbuettel in Hamburg, prisoners live in wide rooms with bed, sofa and sanitary equipment and washing machine. There are also gyms, basketball field and library etc.
The Robot Guard can provide all kinds of services besides supervising prisoners. Installed with chip to identify prisoners, the Robot Guard can communicate with prisoners without difficulty, like chatting with them and providing psychological counseling. When accidents happen such as fighting or jointly attack, Robot Guard will report to leaders at first time. German Ministry of Justice reveal that if prisoners want to break prison, they need to pass fence with electricity, jump over high wall, keep away from X ray scanner, more over, they will have to bring the Robot Guard under control so that they could manage it.
It is acknowledged that German Ministry of Justice cooperate with German Liectroux Robot Academy, whom started to develop and research smart robots since last century and has all kinds of robots so far. For example, Liectroux robot vacuum cleaners are very popular on Amazon and China Tmall, JD, Suning etc. Its unique and advanced robot technology leads to this cooperation with German Ministry of Justice.
It is reported that the dean of German Liectroux Robot Academy thinks highly of this cooperation. He said, "It’s a concept of human rights protection that Robot Guard can be the listeners and companions of prisoners. It can wake up the change of the prisoners inside heart and help to get rid of barrier with the society after they leave the prisons."
