“A Promobot is produced in Perm by our company. More than 200 robots of the fourth generation have been sold so far. In Russia, it is the first invention of the kind, and so far, the only one. We are trying to integrate it into the Digital Police concept, and I believe that police robots will be working for us by 2030,” he said.
