In Singapore, as an experiment, two Xavier robots were launched in the central Toa Payoh district to monitor compliance with the rules. The robots are completely autonomous, but at the same time constantly broadcast video from a 360-degree camera to the control center. Also, robots can shoot video not only in the daytime, but also at night.
The task of the robots is to keep order on the street with an intense flow of pedestrians. They make sure that no one smokes in prohibited places, does not ride vehicles on footpaths, and does not violate public order. Also, robots monitor compliance with the rules of parking vehicles.
In case of detection of an offense, the robot transmits a signal to the control center in real time. And in case of a serious offense, a police detachment leaves the place. If the offense is not serious, then the inspector can talk to the offender directly through the external speakers of the robot.
Based on the results of the experiment, a decision will be made on the effectiveness of such measures in public places. And perhaps, in the near future, robots will patrol all public places in Singapore and other cities.
