I often wonder what traffic cops think about when they walk up to a car they just pulled over. Will the driver be calm or hostile?
SRI International is busy creating a robot that will make it safer for police and motorists. According to the robot research company, 16,915,140 drivers are pulled over in traffic each year, 195, 078 motorists have physical force used on them, 4,488 officers are assaulted, 89 of those motorists die, and 11 of the officers die.
SRI and Stanford University are busy working on robots that will be the ones issuing the traffic tickets.
Watch the above video to see how robots will do on the job. They will be here sooner than you think.
