Singapore has robots to patrol the streets

  • September 7, 2021

Singapore is a city-state known for its use of many new technologies. Now it has been decided to test a robot that will be used to patrol the streets. The machine is called Xavier and is designed to monitor what authorities consider undesirable social behavior, such as meetings involving more than 5 people.

The Xavier is a small four-wheeled robot that you will soon be able to meet on the streets of Singapore, where a floating photovoltaic unit was recently installed. There, the machine will patrol the streets in terms of social behavior. The pilot program will last a few weeks and is intended to demonstrate the effectiveness of this solution.

Xavier robots will check for unwanted social behavior on the streets of Singapore. The robots will also check whether people smoke in forbidden places.
