If you happen to take a ferry to a nearby Singapore island through the Marina South Pier, you might find the mask detection and social distance checking robot working day and night to remind passengers to wear a mask and keep 1-meter social distance. The social distancing robot (mask detection, and social distancing detection) greatly reduces the manpower needed for the purpose of COVID-19-related patrolling. It also making the places more harmonic, as less people-to-people reminding of "wearing masks, keep distancing", eventually creating a better place for the property owner, as well as the visitors.
At Weston Robot, our goal is to change the world by accelerating the pace of robot adoption in various sectors. We strive to connect multi-disciplinary knowledge in science & engineering with the real & practical demands of robots in manufacturing & social life. Since the beginning of this pandemic, engineers at Weston Robot had been working very hard to deliver robotics solutions to help officers at different public places remind people wearing masks and keep 1-meter social distances. Weston Robot trained its AI model of Mask Detection with powerful NVIDA super computers and deployed the trained models on NVIDIA Jetson Xavier for power consumption purposes.
This robot can run 24/7 to work together with the onsite staffs. The robot will automatically go back to its charging station to get charged, and resume its job once fully charged. We can also add special running scheduling of the robot, e.g., the robot can go back to its charging station at certain events when robot is not needed. Together with the staff ant Marina South Pier, we are confident to create another way of reminding people to be socially responsible for the pandemic.

- 12-25Students and researchers from Singapore Polytechnic developed outdoor delivery robot by collaborating with Weston Robot's engineers team using RTK/GPS navigation. he AMRs are able to collect and deliver items, based on request, from one building to another. They are able to navigate around on their own, avoiding obstacles, and returning to their source if any unexpected situation arises.
Weston Robot Delivered FDA-approved Exoskeletons to Rehabilitation Research Institute of SingaporeThe FDA-approved PHOENIX Medical Exoskeleton is the world's lightest and most advanced exoskeleton designed to help people with mobility disorders to be upright and mobile. In the clinic, at home, and in the workplace Phoenix has successfully enabled many individuals to stand up, walk about, and speak to peers eye-to-eye.
Weston Robot Delivered Ackerman-Driven Autonomous Robot to NTUTo develop autonomous driving related algorithms with a real car is very expensive and requiring large spaces and tracks. However, Ackerman-drive robot, which mimics the behaviour of a car is superiors in many aspects. Autonomous driving research team in Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, adopts the Ackerman-drive robot from Weston Robot to conduct their advanced research.
