A Four-Legged Park Patrol In Singapore!

Boston Dynamics four-legged robot, Spot

Don’t be surprised if you spot  SPOT, a robot-dog at Singapore’s Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park.
Municipal authorities are doing a 2 week trial with Boston Dynamics  four-legged robot to remind park visitors to maintain social distancing.

How does SPOT the robot work?
? Spot is attached with cameras enabled by GovTech & is remote controlled by an operator.
?‍?‍?‍? The cameras will estimate the number of people present in the park without collection of any personal data.
?? ‍Spot has in-built safety sensors to avoid any collisions & will always be accompanied by a guide.
? A recorded message to keep safe distancing will be broadcasted by the robot.

The 2-week pilot trial is jointly conducted by:
NParks – Singapore National Parks Board
SNDGG – Smart Nation & Digital Government Group

We do hope this experiment of the ‘loudspeaker on legs’ is successful as it will reduce the need for staff to physically patrol the parks.

Spot is also being tested & used in hospitals as part of the Covid-19 response, to reduce the risk to frontline medical staff.
