Singapore Uses Headless Robot Dogs To Enforce COVID-19 Lockdown



During the coronavirus shutdown, a robot dog is used to impose social distancing between parks in Singapore.

The 4-legged remote-controlled computer called SPOT respectfully asks joggers and cyclists to remain apart in the green spaces of the city-state.

Built by Boston Dynamics and recruited by authorities in Singapore to help combat coronavirus infections, the robotdog was first deployed Friday in a central park.

It’s part of a two-week trial that could see the robotic contraption join other robots policing Singapore’s green spaces during a lockdown.

“Let’s keep Singapore healthy,” the yellow and black robodog named SPOT says in English as it roams around.

“Please stand at least one meter apart for your own protection and those around you. Thank you,” it says, in a softly spoken voice.
