Singapore Uses Robot Dog To Enforce Coronavirus Lockdown

A robot dog is being used to enforce social distancing across parks in Singapore during the coronavirus lockdown.

The remote-controlled four-legged machine named SPOT politely asks joggers and cyclists to stay apart in the city-state's green spaces.

The robotdog, built by Boston Dynamics and enlisted by Singapore authorities to help curb coronavirus infections, was first deployed in a central park on Friday.

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

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

"For your own safety and for those around you, please stand at least one metre apart. Thank you," it adds, in a softly-spoken female voice.
