Robots are being used to deter homeless people from setting up camp in San Francisco

  • A security robot has been put to work in San Francisco in an attempt to deter homeless people from forming tent cities.
  • The robot uses lasers and sensors to monitor an area for criminal activity. Rather than intervene during a crime, it alerts human authorities.
  • The robot's owner, the San Francisco SPCA, said it has seen fewer tents and car break-ins since it deployed the robot in the city's Mission neighborhood.

In San Francisco, autonomous crime-fighting robots that are used to patrol parking lots, sports arenas, and tech company campuses are now being deployed to keep away homeless people.

The San Francisco Business Times reported last week that the San Francisco SPCA, an animal advocacy and pet adoption group, put a security robot to work outside its facilities in the gentrifying Mission neighborhood. The robot's presence is meant to deter homeless people from setting up camps along the sidewalks.

Every morning in San Fran the police spend hours doing the rounds clearing homeless people from the main streets. Suppose this would save them time.

The craziest homeless people in the world live there. Nam flashbacks types, walking aimlessly into the road shouting "WE GOT CHARLIE CRAWLIN' ALL OVER US" and so on. Lots and lots of druggie burnouts too.

Looks like the true facts are that it is deployed to reduce criminal activity and one of the other effects it has had is that it has deterred vagrancy.


Fake news, designed as fodder for more Libtard bleating.

Grand so.


I can't see the problem though.



By the by, the fact that this report was brought to us by a robut hasn't been lost on me.

No, apparently there is a darker cost saving plan afoot .. They are reactivating and repurposing the E-Voting Machines as we speak :D

Add Wheels and a motor and we are sorted :D

Look at the business model....
Knightscope rents out the robots for $7 an hour — less than a security guard's hourly wage. The company has over 19 clients in five US states. Most customers, including Microsoft, Uber, and Juniper Networks, put the robots to work patrolling parking lots and office buildings.

Preventing crime is part of the pitch that Knightscope makes to prospective customers. (Increased police presence can reduce crime, though this is not always the case.)
Fockin hell. There's no pretense here about creating new opportunities or any of that crap. Simple replacement of low grade labour. :|
