Singapore law enforcement is testing two unmanned drones designed by developer Airobotics to help enforce social distancing measures, by tracking gatherings and streaming video of them to police.
Airobotics said this is the first time automated commercial drones have been sanctioned to fly over a major city.
Low Hsien Meng from the Singapore Home Team Science & Technology Agency (HTX)'s Robotics, Automation & Unmanned Systems Center said the drones can pinpoint locations and zoom into spaces that police might miss on foot or in vehicles.
Airobotics said the drones, which it leases to HTX, also are being leased for industrial use in Israel and the U.S.
