Routine Traffic Stops May Be Getting Safer

Are Robots the Future of Law Enforcement?

By IGI Global on Oct 3, 2019
According to a NBC Mach article, a mechanical engineer created a robot that will mitigate violent encounters during traffic stops. Equipped with a webcam, signature pad, a small printer, and spikes (to prevent the driver from leaving the scene), this robot enables officers to communicate with the drivers and print traffic tickets without either party leaving their vehicles.

This robot was inspired by the fact that nearly 50,000 traffic stops are made daily in the United States, which often results in motorists or police being injured, assaulted, or killed. As this area of research is still evolving, find below the latest findings on topics related to public safety, law enforcement, robotics, and mechanical engineering. All of the related chapters are available in IGI Global’s InfoSci-Books database:

All this research is part of IGI Global’s InfoSci®-Books, a database of over 5,300+ reference books containing over 100,000+ chapters. Featuring IGI Global’s robust collection of edited and authored reference books, handbooks of research, critical explorations, case books, and research insights, IGI Global's InfoSci®-Books database is being offered with an annual subscription (2000-2020) as low as US$ 9,450 (one-time perpetual purchase for current copyright year (2020) offered as low as US$ 20,500*). This database ensures that librarians can affordably acquire emerging research for their institutions.

Additionally, when a library invests in IGI Global's InfoSci®-Books database, IGI Global will match the library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the OA article processing charges (APCs) for their students, faculty, and staff at that institution when their work is submitted and accepted under OA into an IGI Global journal.**

*Perpetual purchase option reflects InfoSci-Books 2020 (800 - 850+ titles) pricing for existing customers.

**The fund will be offered on an annual basis and expire at the end of the subscription period. The fund would renew as the subscription is renewed for each year thereafter. The open access fees will be waived after the student, faculty, or staff’s paper has been vetted/accepted into an IGI Global journal as requested by the author(s) of the paper. Libraries in developing countries will have the match on their investment doubled.
