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.

Robots are being rented from a company known as Knightscope by San Fransisco SPCA, a non-profit organization that helps homeless animals to rid the sidewalks of homeless people camping out on the sidewalks.
