Japanese scientists pondered what would happen if they left a homeless robot for a walk around the mall. Experimental observations have shown that with a high probability he will become a victim of small Japanese bullies – children. They will join in groups, kick, beat the robot and even insult him. Robovie 2 just walked around the shopping center in Osaka and was programmed to politely ask people to step aside if they block his path. But in most cases, children refused to obey the car and specifically blocked its path. After that, they began to play pranks and beat the robot, which forced scientists to develop an algorithm for avoiding bullying. They created a system that estimates the likelihood of abuse as a percentage. If a small humanoid up to 1 meter tall 40 centimeters passes next to the robot without an adult, then the threat increases. If the child is also with a backpack, then the likelihood of abuse increases even more. When the robot notes that the children just walk nearby, it instantly changes the direction of its movement. And in an extreme case, Robovie 2 is trying to find protection in adults, hoping that in their eyes the hooligans will not plot.
