Four-Legged Robot Patrols Singapore Park to Remind People of Social Distancing

Singapore has employed a four-legged robot to patrol a popular park and remind people to maintain social distancing.

SPOT, a robot designed by Boston Dynamics, shows off its ability to climb difficult terrain in a video shared by the official account of Singapore’s Minister for Foreign Affairs.

The robot delivers a prerecorded message to people in the park, reminded them to keep their distance from one another in order to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park will be home to the patrolling robot for two weeks and it will be accompanied by a member of park staff, according to local reports. Credit: Vivian Balakrishnan via Storyful
