Seven-foot tall robots at the Dallas Love Field Airport are scanning for unmasked travelers and cars that have been parked for too long.
The robots—dubbed SCOT (security control observation towers)—have been placed at two locations; one near security checkpoints and the other near baggage claim.
The robots have a touchscreen people can use to find information, but use technology that detects if someone is wearing a mask or not. SCOT can also warn passengers who’ve been parked for too long, a capability enabled by a license plate reader.
If someone is breaking the rules, SCOT will give a verbal warning that increases in severity and volume if someone does not comply.
The machine can even call the police.
