Watch this robot patrol a park to encourage social distancing
Publication/Creation DateMay 8 2020
DescriptionThe Government of Singapore has started a two-week pilot program which uses Boston Dynamics' Spot robot to patrol public parks and remind people to practice social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic. The robot is programmed with a pre-recorded message which says, "Let's keep Singapore healthy. For your own safety and for those around you, please stand at least one metre apart. Thank you". The robot is equipped with a camera which can help it estimate how many people are using the park. The Government has stated that it does not track or recognize specific individuals though.
