There’s a new sheriff in town to make sure people are social distancing.
Watch out for the terrifying Boston Dynamics robot dogs!
According to The Strait Times, the dogs have been deployed to a Singapore park for a two-week trial.
The goal of the dog patrol is to broadcast a message about the importance of social distancing.
As if they weren’t already creepy enough, the headless, mechanical dogs are also equipped with cameras to estimate the number of people in the park, but it will not track or identify individuals. It is also fitted with safety sensors to detect objects and people within 1m to avoid collision.
