Spot the robot helps with social distancing

Singapore unveiled a four-legged canine-like robot named Spot as part of a two week trial-run held by the National Parks Board and the Smart Nation and Digital Government Group, according to an official press release from National Parks.

Spot, who was developed by Boston Dynamics, is being deployed to ‘reduce the manpower required for park patrols and minimise contact among staff’.
