Is This The Future? Singapore Hires Boston Dynamics’ Robot Dog To Enforce Social Distancing In Parks

As Reuters reports, the robotic dog ‘Spot’ was deployed in a public park as part of a two-week trial period. ‘Spot’ spots any park-goers not following social distancing guidelines and politely says in a woman’s voice, “Let’s keep Singapore healthy. For your own safety and for those around you, please stand at least one meter apart. Thank you.”

‘Spot’ can also estimate the number of people in the park with it’s cameras but won’t be able to track or record personal data.
